Default Help me choose my engine

Im in the middle of building a 1/8 kyosho M3. im stuck on what engine i want. my price range with a pipe is around 500 to 600 roughly I have been considering:

NovaRossi 35 PLUS 21 LC "Cordoba Edition"

NovaRossi .21 FLASH - i can get one for $550.

O.S .21 VZR

RB CIRCUIT 9

RB Classico 9

These are some i was considering. but im not sure what to get. and im not sure on what pipe to match any of the motors with.

Give me your input Thanks ~ Chad

any motor would do fine. go for the os since it's cheaper,n should u need replacements? its cheaper than any of the listed. the life of this motor is hotly debated. it depend on ur tuning and luck
anyway, good luck

I would get cordoba. You can get one now for less than $500. I think this should still be the fastest among your selections.

Why no mention of the Picco EVO3? It has proven itself in national competition is is much less expensive.
