I would vote for your Modified Novarissi myself. Those Rissis Rock!

I would have to vote for the RB C6BB myself. This motor is a monster from low end to top end with a nice powerband.

i think it really depends on the track. while a high spinning modified .21 could be preferred on high speed tracks, engines like ofna's force .28 or even their .32 could be more ideal where straight-aways are short and sharp turns are frequent. i use a force. 28 - hey, its cheap, easy to tune (and stays in tune), and when matched with my jp-2 has plenty of mid and top end.

i use to be a non believer of 528's, but this motor right here kicks major bootay. Jim hottinger does a great job on modding engines and the Novarossi 528 is a fantastic engine alone to even consider with the above engines you listed. thats what i would get.

Im running the ninja in my truggy, I had the second fastest lap and was running against engines that cost twice as much. The ninja holds a tune very well and turns around 43000 plus. Its some what new and everyone kinda likes to wait and see how these newer engines perform. I like mine so much I grabbed another one before word gets around.

OS .21 VSpec. Doesn't get any better than that.
