Default Rb WS7 or Ninja, opinions appreciated.

Im having a very hard time deciding on which of these motors I wanna run my 8th scale this year. Nitro isnt quite like electric where you dont have many options.

Ive narrowed it down to these 2 motors and I would really appreciate your opinion on which would be beter suited for the tracks I race on. Most are fairly open and have 150+ ft straight.

Thanks for your time

fairly open and a long straight means on road right? then ur rb ws7 is an off road engine. so my answer would be a ninja cos the ninja is meant for on road.

Ninja and RB both have onroad and offroad engines. To recommend one you have to tell us if you are onroad or offroad. Either way my vote is for the RB, as they are amazing engines.

i would go a c6. its going to be faster where you want it to be and so fast you will probably wish to de-tune it.

According to Rody the WS7 series have more top end power.
BUT top end power is not always going to win in the straight.If the low end motor can get some grip it will accelerate faster and be very difficult to catch up after that...
