I agree with you but sometime its kind of hard to tune like my Nova Plus 21-3, if OS has a new model I would like to try it at least i wont be having headache trying to tune it right. This is just my opinion and maybe I m not a good tuner as well.

You should have latched onto the first run of Cordobas @ $499.

The NovaRossi 221's or 721's are decent for the buck for club racing.

RB has some good club engines- S7C, C6 or Xenon (ABC version). The C6 (Nova based) is a good engine for the money as is the Xenon (Sirio based)- like $400.

You can also get a 321P or a R1WC01 for around $400 at Brooklyn Hobbies.

on a budget I'd go 321P, C6 then Xenon in that order- excellent value engines around $400!!

If the sky is the limit- 359, Cordoba, 35+21- $500 and up.

Steer clear of the Ninja and OS for onroad.
