You'd have to hunt down a person that owns both engines to answer your questions as to which one is faster and more reliable.

All the engines you listed are reliable. Of course, the max engine is the fastest. But I like your Bossi pixi engine which is not the fast, but the material for the engines are the best and they are very durable

Lightbulb H/P

Stick with the Rody R/B.....
Your car is plenty fast right now, mine is slow on H/P it just handles very well. Lots of corner speed and driving skill will make you faster then ungodly H/P will anyday.

and one more thing, but first flame suit on, not intend to bash RB or Rody tuned motor at all, I have seen a few(meaning more then 3) RB Rody motor went bad. And twice were at the Crank Pin area worn down to like an oval shape!
