The Max is excellent. Haven't seen a Mig yet but should be just as good.

My choice:

Very strong motor for a very good price.

Short, twisty track, I have two suggestions.

1. HP isn't so important so go with strong but inexpensive. That would be the Kangaroo I linked to earlier.

2. If you just have to have that tire spinning, gear stripping, stump pulling power out of the whole and have money to burn, you can't beat a 35+21. Especially a tuned or Murnan version. I really don't think you will need that kind of power for a short track though unless it's SUPER high bite.

Its a car park that has been converted to permanent track that the club rents and blower clean before racing,
traction is medium to med-high bite at best

For parking lot racing, HP means nearly nothing. Go with either the RB or the Kangaroo. Both are reliable, easy to tune, plenty of power and you will probably be faster than you would be with a full blown mod.

Good power, buy lots of rods when you buy the motor.
