Default Engine choices narrowed down. What do you think?

Ok after talking with most of you guys, and getting opinons i haved narrowed it down to these engines. They all fall in my price range, but what im wanting is something that is going to last, i do take care of my stuff, I will only be club racing and bashing. If there is an engine that you dont see listed here that falls $200 and under please feel free to suggest. What i am wanting to see from this thread is your experiences with these engines. Please give as much detail as possible, i want to be sure that im making a good choice. Again thanks for all your help in the process, i am a complete engine n00b.

Mach 427 .28
LRP Z .28R Spec 3
Novarossi N21BF .21
Axial .28RR

Default RE: Engine choices narrowed down. What do you think?

The 2 on the list to consider would be the Mach and the Nova. I had a Mach and it ran great, was easy to tune and I never had problems with it...I'd say it's a great engine for a beginner. NovarossiQUALITY for $150 seems like an excellent deal too but I wouldn't expect it to be a powerhouse...at least you have the extra displacement/power with the Mach.

You'll probably be asking "which engine" again soon if you are a gearhead type person like a lot of us, lol! I've only been in the 1/8 nitro game for 9-10 months so I still consider myself a noob but I've alreadyhad a Mach, hot modded Nova 21-5kt, hot modded Nova 821b, Ninja jx21, Clockwork Picco p3 .28, Clockwork Jammin' JX21 and today I just got a Nova plus 21-4!
