Default Looking for something...

...between a $200 H9 Sundowner 50 and a $1100 Big Bruce that would be suitable for a Jett SJ .60LX. I do not have the engine yet so that is still adjustable. I got a taste for speed from a little electric I played with but after blowing a battery up like a baloon I decided one expensive engine is better than a bunch of expensive batteries. I'm more of a glow and gas flyer anyways. So what will give me ~150 MPH?

Have a look at the screamon deamon, Delta.

Its unlikely you will be dissapointed.

On the Jett websight, they did up a sundowner 50 w/ a jett60lx and I think it went somewheres around 130 mph.

Dub has been playing around with a super sport .40 motor (around $250-$275) that is a perfect match for a $120 viper.

Not sure how you can get to 150+mph easier or cheaper.
