Default Nitro engines

I've been out of the nitro scene for several years now and been running "e-words". Well, i'm tired of charging batteries and wanna get back into nitro. I got my old rc10gt with an o.s.15 and my xxx-nt with a trx 2.5 running after about 8 years and they're running flawless. I was looking into getting a new motor for my savage, but it seems like there's not any where near as many nitro options anymore. What are some good engine companies now? I see that Nitros are fading away. I bought a rossi 2.5 about 2 months ago for a t-maxx build i'm doing and see that now it is already discontinued. Seems like alot of good engine companies that i used to know are gone now, such as Trinity, RB, etc.

Awesome, thanks for the reply. Never heard of werks, alpha, triton, protek, reds, or blok. Definitely gonna check them out. And i forgot about team orion, I remember their wasp motors were pretty decent. Was gonna put their .28 in my GS Storm Unlimited back in the day but never did.

The best in my opinion are either OS or Reds. Also, a lot of the engines are OS based so...
