I would say it depends on how fast you want to go and how deep is your pocket, Id say the engine will take it the fastest (with throtle) is the Jett 50 from jett engineering. But then again, I think youe 46 w/ pipe is a good start.

I'm gonna try a OS 46 VXDF on my next one. Had the 46 VRDF on the last one, it was a nice combo. Jett 50 FIRE is gonna be hard to beat as far as a slap it on and go engine, all the RIRE engines are gonna take some shoehorning.

It was great to meet you and your better half last weekend, SWICK. I had a lot of fun out there!!

What's up Chuck?? I had a blast last weekend at the Pro Bro. And like wise, a pleasure to meet the CRASH MONGER..LOL.

Ive been thinking about the whiplash esp. after seeing yours. But since I have the Dust and pretty happy with the 46fx and pipe, I just think that I need a stronger engine to keep up with a magnum. Id be able to save the cost of the whiplash, which can go towards more juice.

isnt the os 46 vxdf for inducted fan units?? does that engine work fine with a prop on the front. If so that puppy should turn some RPM'S.

Yeah, the VXDF and VRDF are both Ducted Fan engines. You can mount a prop on them, but it takes some doing and a special prop nut assembly.
