Default Best .12 engine

Can someone help me to decide which engine will I buy for my Xray NT1 WC :
MAX Power .12 XXL3 WC, OS Speed Tuned .12XZ Spec II, RB Touring 10RC or Novarossi Plus 3sct/353 (2010)? I'm looking for a engine with reliability and performance on short or long course.

The max power or nova flash! The flash has so much torque!

I don't mean to bash but... This is the 7th thread you start asking the same question...

All engines will perform near equal to one another... Most of people's choice is by looks, who's running it and price tag...

Don't look at the OS, they are costy and never have impressed me. The T10 RC isn't worth its money.

The XXL3 is an amazing engine and really worth every penny.

The 3sct is also a very good engine after being modded by Murnan. The 353 is another possibility since its cheap.

RB T10RC isn't worth the money??? Why is that?

A good list of engines that you CANNOT go wrong with is:
Nova - Flash .12 Tuned 3 port
- 353 C (Tuned?)
- 12-sct (Tuned?)
RB - T10RC
- M3 (from Murnan Modified)
- R3 (again, from MM if you can find it)
Max XXL3 WC or Massimo Fantini Modded.

Every single one of them is a rocket in the right hands, especially the Max XXL3 and RBM3.
Once you find the engine holding you back, then go modified if the engine is already a ripper.
