Default Need help choosing engine for GT car.

So I feel like I have narrowed down to 2 engines but I am open to suggestions. This is going in my Kyosho GT2 that is mostly a basher but I do hit the track every once in a while.

I was looking at the RB .21 SPEED 2014 version but I am worried about the small head and cooling. Also looking at the Novarossi TUNED GT .21 5 PORT.

Currently I am running an LRP .32 geared TALL lol. It has a ton of power and speed but run time sucks and the power band isn't exactly smooth and it is murder on the drive train. Open to suggestions. Trying to stay under 300 and needs to be turbo plug.

Thanks

Go with Nova ISON GT .21 5 PORT. It is reliable and plenty of power and around $279.

I'm getting about 5 gallons out of my LRPs before they need a new sleeve and piston. How is the novarossi? I've never owned one.

What about the kappo .21? I know they are discontinued but I found one in Stock. Take that over the ISON GT?
