Default .21 Novarossi Advice for club racing

hi guys, finally getting into 1/8th after racing 200mm for a couple of years, anyone here can steer me into the direction of a good .21 novarossi for club racing at decent price, the novarossi .12's i know a bit about, the .21's i have no clue on.
Also what would be a good pipe and header for a short technical track.

The Novarossi 35+21 with steel bearings. It is available for under $400. The Novarossi 2015 with 41016 medium manifold is a great combination to use on that engine.

The Kangaroo is also a very good and a bit cheaper option option and we on our club do have stunning results with the Basic N21-5T engine as stock engine.

That pipe with the medium manifold works well on all Nova's.

Get the 35+21 it Is faster point blank. Your going to want more power once you start racing at bigger races anyway.

Nothing is wrong with it, the steel bearing version saves money. The ceramic bearing version is still available, it just costs more money.

If it's an LC, it probably takes the "C" series rods. A C2 is 07010. Everything I run uses R rods though so I could be off.

Ignore the old pic of an R5:
