Default Capricorn

Hey I just scored a Capricorn lab c801, eventually I will race it but will be a car park car for now. Can anyone suggest a half decent .21 to suit around 300 dollar mark? Can't afford anything else right now. Done a bit of research and I know what I want ultimately, but want a meantime engine. Cheers guys

If you are running this car in an untreated dirty
lot you are going to destroy belts and pulleys like
no tomorrow... Small stones will eat it alive...I suggest
any 3 port off-road motor.. As traction will be very
limited on untreated/ prepped surfaces..
