It's a silly question. There is no "best engine brand". The "best" engine depends upon a huge number of variables for any particular application & each application is different. There will be many "best" brands for many applications. Your question is a meaningless exercise in the politics of personal preference.

I agree with britbrat but since you're asking

You need to add Jett to your list.

uh huh. here comes a can or worms. need fries with that.
Everyone one this site is going to say such in such is the best because I have it.
OS is overrated. they have good longevity but the power sucks, though if you throw some money at them. mac pipe a Perry pump and a bigger carb you can get some power out of them. there 4-strokes are ok. The saitos work great, little finicky on break in. the YS I've found have less dead stick landings during break in and more power. Webra should have gone the way of enya. old school is cool but update your medals tech will ya

For me it's a toss up on Rossi and Jett for the !QUOT!best 2-stroke!QUOT! nelson is the prooven champ but who can afford em
toss up between evolution and tower for the best cut rate motor
YS has my vote on 4-strokes. saito a very close second
and Zeohna with hand down on Gassers

Best for what purpose?
For some uses an MVVS might be best. Or Jett. Or ...
For some other stuff, a Hacker, Neu, Actro, or AXI might be best

True, but Hacker, Neu, Actro, and AXI are motors, not engines

I think you'd get a lot more input if you said "worst brand"

You're missing the point by a couple of light years. There is no BEST engine -- there are many best engines, by many manufacturers. What might be a better question is -- "What is your favorite engine manufacturer?" -- even then, you really need to specify the numerous applications, because no single manufacturer can, or does, come close to covering all of the bases.

The poll is about the most popular not the best.
To choose the best or worst engine one must be more specific about the requirement.
OS will definitly be the most popular because the offer the widest range.

He actually started it about the "best" -- he's just changed the title to protect the guilty

YS gets my vote. By the way, there was a similar engine poll a couple of years ago in the engine forum.
