Default Sirio .23 Replacement for S-Maxx

I'm looking for a replacement to my tired Sirio .23 that's been in my S-Maxx since about 1999, and has been an excellent engine. I want something that's going to give me really long wheelies and something with high rpms...Im looking for a newer version of the Sirio .23, but not looking to spend what I spent for it back then...

Well, for basic ideas.... You can spend about $120 and get an SH engine, either SH brand, Dynamite, LRP, XTM, etc. The SH brand (the actual company that makes all of those brands) is probably the cheapest. I have an SH .28 and it runs perfectly fine. Your other basic option is Picco. Those run roughly $200 or there abouts. Good strong reliable engines. Above that is stuff like the OS VG engines.. those are about $270.

These are basic ideas, there are numberous other engines out there, but thats the idea on cost. I've never ran a Picco or OS, but other guys on this forum have and I know the Picco's are stout performers.
