Default Second/Spare engine.....

I've recently started up nitro buggys and i'm finding that it brilliant fun. Noise, smell, jumps etc. One question i would like to ask though is out of these 4 engines below what would you choose if you could. Currently i'm using a RB WS7 III, i'd like something with maybe smoother acceleration if there is anything.

- RB WS7 III
- RB C6 BBT7
- OS VZ-B V-Spec Aluminium Head
- OS VZ-B V-Spec Magnesium Head

Mainly asking because if something goes up the creek for some reason with my current engine i'd like a back up. If you can give good/bad points of these engines from your experiences it would make my life a lot easier.

Cheers, Chaz

OS VZ-B V-Spec Aluminium Head.
Everyone dumps the Magnesium head OS VZ-B V-Spec and the C6 BBT7 will be more torque aggressive than your current engine and sucks more fuel.

ezveedub is right on the money,i have not found a quicker and more reliable motor than a speed vspec.Definately with the aluminium head.
