Default .21 Nitro Engine for club level racing.

Hey guys I'm stepping away from 12th scale indoor to 8th nitro on road.

I'm looking for a .21 Nitro engine for a 1/8 on road chassis..

Doesn't have to be the best, just good value and reasonably good performance.

Smile .21 nitro eng.

I've seen a 3 port Nova Rossi in 1/8th GT competition that sells for $175 do a very nice job.

The BP735RT is a solid motor, or go for the 9 port version. http://www.bpengines.com/productsonroad21engines.html

The VOX V1 Tech is good too http://www.voxengines.com/en/products/OTTO-V1-TECH_10

Both are relatively inexpensive with good performance. I have used the tuned versions of both with good results. Other engines to look at are the RB Killer 10, or look at some of the other lower priced Picco based engines.

We have very good results with the Novarossi N21-5T

Default Good engine

You can get an S&H 8 port .21 for about 130 bucks off ebay. I've run a few of the SH motors and it's a heck of an engine for the money. They aren't tempermental, don't overheat, maintain a steady idle, deliver the power and sip the fuel. I can't speak for lots of other engines but I've found SH to be pretty much maintenance free and tons of bang for the buck. I typically crack my engines open when I get them...just to see if it's all good, and I've never found machining errors (slag, undrilled, uncleaned, slop fit, etc) and I have no idea how they are producing a motor like that for the money when lots of others cost so much but I'm not arguing with it, I'll stick with them until they do like the others and raise their prices to the ozone layer.

My 4 SH (two off-road and two on-road smallblock)engines have been trouble free,long lasting and I really like the price x performance ratio.

You can get SH Engines here. We don't stock much for on-road engines, but we will order anything you want. The new PT2010-XT is awesome, we had some in stock, but just sold out.

The PT2010-XB is a great engine. It is listed as an off road engine, but we know a few guys running them for on-road. The specs are almost identical. The on-road has bigger carb restrictors. All SH engines are Free Shipping.
