Are you looking to just upgrade your 350 with the Werks engine....or does your buggy need on altogether? If the former, I would keep what you have. Not to dismiss Werks (I've not owned one but have read/heard only positive things about them), but have been impressed with the 350 and unusure how much of a difference you would see. If you are looking at that price-range and want to change, suggest the B5. I've not seen a B2 in person, but have seen quite a few B5's and everyone I spoke with loves them.

Is the 350 worn out? Are you racing or bashing?

B2 is mostly for a small to medium track. B6 for larger tracks. B5 is good, but can be a handfull for some people because of it's more abrupt low end.

I'd get the Werks B2, based on all the very positive stuff I've heard about it. Very good value-for-money.. (I'd probably already have one if they were sold here..)

As for the lack of top end, that supposedly is easy to compensate for with a higher count CB...
