Default need a .21 or 26 size engine for truggy could use some help

looking for a good engine to race on my jt hybrid truggy i was mainly hoping to get a novarossi p5 not shore i can afford that right know since i bought a cen nemesis wich ill begin to breakin after christmas. i want some thing race worth even if its cheeper plan on buying a jp1 pipe to go with it . what are you guys running in this size engines. i also have a mbx 5 buggy with a rb s72 engine on it and rb o86 pipe. i even considered putting this on my truggy and shop for a different buggy motor. i would like to save money if possible. i considered a o.s. rg but wasnt shore if it would satisfy me on the buggy. any help i would appreciate. thanks

From what I understand most truggy classes allow engines bigger than a 21 so why not go with a 26? I run a Sportwerks 26 in my SUT Pro and my friend runs a Hyper 21 and there is no comparison.

You really can't go wrong with a O.S. V-spec, good engines with lots of bang

how do you like that sportwerks .26? i've been thinking about buying that one to replace my stock hot bodies .26. the hot bodies has no top end at all even with a jp2 pipe on it. ok well the jp2 did make it wake up a little more but not as much as i want. it doesn't seem like it reving high enough. like maybe it only getting to 25,000rpms or so. but i've heard some really good things about the sportwerks. especially being a great bang for buck at only $129. let me know what you think about it. pros... cons...
