I would choose either one:

JP .12 FX-T03MT w/ceramic bearing (www.kamikazetoysandhobbies.com)
Team Orion .12 REV CRF (http://www.towerhobbies.com/)
Sirio Evo 3 Murnan Mod (http://murnanmodified.360k.com/)

TRI40011 .12 Touring Draked... Big time horsepower and very easy to tune.
You can purchase it directly from Trinity.

I think for the money, the mega zx12 is the best and it gets great fuel milage. Just keep it rich on the bottom and it is the best.

I should have mentioned it has to last a while, I dont want to have to replace pistons and sleeves every season as well as a rod.....


Any of the RBs very good, I had a S7 in My MBX5 for a while and it lacked a lot of bottom....

How much does a Profi .12 cost with a spare conrod.?

I have changed my mind, can I find a motor that has a lil bit more power than the NS12S3? I got it for 200 off ebay, I don't know about the os....eek

The Team orion Rev motor looks in my price range, I think I will check it out....

the OS12TZ is great engine at a great price but you really need the OS Speed pipe to go with it to get its full power out

well if ur realy racing and u want some serious speed i would consider either a REV wasp engine from orion or a os18tz but u dont want a .18 so i would consider the wasp engine thats just come out.....should be very reliable and looks realy nicely designed too....

bUT if u want to just bash around n have like local races n stuff i would consider buying a force .12 for like 50 bucks and internaly modifying it.....u might think im crazy but i had a fully internaly modified force .12 in my top fuel dragster and i was passing guys in the 40m straight that wer running RB.21's and RB.12's and novarossi's and i came 2nd after this guy that had a os .21 or sumthing with a supercharger on it......

and best thing is i ran around 14 gallons through it without running it in from the 1st tank it run it was modified and ready to rip.....and there piss cheap to replace is u want aswell......i dont realy think ull have to tho..i had mine till about a month ago wen i sold it to my mate...still had compression like it was new and i was using 30% nitro in it......

i own a sirio evo3 3 port turbo, and a OS tz 5 port. the 5 port is very good value for money and so is the sirio. both these engines perform extremly well on a large track and on small tracks.

i race at the same track the 2001 worlds was held at (john grant international raceway) it is a vey large track. the OS tz 5 port is only approx $250 australian landed.

i use a mugen seiki pipe with these engines, and all the people i race with comment that this is the best pipe on the market.

grab this pipe with either a OS 3 or 5 port or a evo 3 sirio 3 or 5 port and you will be more than happy.
