Default Suggestions on a new .21 or larger engine... Please help...

Hello everyone wanted to get some suggestions on a .21 or larger on-road nitro engine. Looking for primarily street bashing, high speed straight runs. I will not be competing so cutting edge technology is not what I am seeking. Just looking for the least expensive alternatives in nitro engines to get me to high speeds. So far I'm considering the O.S. XZ-R so any suggestions for plus or minus in that range will greatly be appreciated! Thank you in advance!

The 21XZ-R is a good motor. Don't know what your budget is like but here are some of the best speed engines that I have found:

Novarossi 35+21
Novarossi Flash
Novarossi Kangaroo
Max Power XL9-TQ
RB C10

Keep in mind that gearing, header, pipe, fuel, and plug temp all play a factor in top speed results as well.

Cheap engines aren't fast and fast engines aren't cheap.
