Default Pick an engine 4 me!

After cleaning the shop up a bit I found 3 engines that had no planes on them! I have the hots for a Kyosho Gee Bee Z arf. Here's where you come in, of these 3 engines which would be best? And tell me why or why not. Maybe you have a better choice for an engine, than I would sell these and buy what you most recommend. I don't need a dog, would rather be on the fast end than the slow end! Thanks for your input, Lon
A. Thunder Tiger 54 4 stroke
B. O.S. FS Surpass 70 4 stroke
C. Saito FA 56 Hemi Head 4 stroke

I would go with B. O.S. FS Surpass 70 4 stroke, I'm having the same issue with my YS63, Lost the plane but I'm thinking of getting a giles for it when the taxes get here. on a 40 size plane the 50 class 4-strokes will pull it but will lack on the extra power. Tomorrow we are going to look at buying the GP GeeBee for the 120 my brother needs a plane for. thase watermelons with wings do look cool.

Go with the OS 70...you already have it so you don't have to sell it at a loss, and it will fly the Gee Bee very nice.
