Default I need something good but won't cost a fortune

Hello guys,

I'll get a V1RRR WCE soon! I want to get an engine but i'm fairly new with on roads. So I pretty much have no clue what's good. Okay I want something that's not too crappy. I used to race 1/8 buggy I have a MBX-5 with a RB C5 and I love Italin engines! But since now I am in Taiwan. I can get O.S for pretty good price. So give me point outs!

thanks a bunch!

well, if you willing to pay $300, go with the Mugen X-12. Awesome engine.

Yeah, please define your "Fortune".....some ppl can spend $350 with $200 of modification plus full options of 1 single .12 size engine without even blinging their eye....can you?

If you want something that you can run again...I think Nova Rossi LL or RR, Mugen X12, RB V12, Mega 12 series, OS 12TZ series.......all are below $300 but above $200 dollar (ok, OS is $190..) I think those enignes will get you started since you have no problem to spend $450 for a world champ car...

$350 - NovaMAX MF modified.

$300 - Novarossi LL (Long stroke) / Novarossi LS (Short stroke)

$250 - Novarossi NSR (Short stroke) / RB V12

Less then $250 - OS TZ






The best "bang for your buck" engine is the Os TZ by a long shot.

At the moment, the value for $$$ engine has to be the OS. I won't say its faster than the modded italian beasts but has no problem to keep up with the Novas.
