Default Motor Choice???

Hello guys, i am about to put together an Aeromarine Donzi hull just for weekend running not racing. I was looking at the WHH M5 motor,but now leaning toward the RCMK EVO! Any thought's on either of the motors? Main concern is reliability of the motor. Any other info would be greatly appreciated also....don't want to make the wrong choice!

Both great choices. The RCMK Evo is a newer deign and Iabsolutely LOVETHEM! Stuck a couple of these in my hulls and they perform extremely well. More solidly designed than the Zen, more bearings and a tougher case.

Theres also the new inline from rcmk that might be worth looking at,at a tad over $500 its a steal.Its somewhat new though so you might want to wait and see how things go with it before ordering .

Go with the RCMK. I have 2 and am hooked. The design of the motor and improvements over the Zen 260 are a steal for the price. There was a lot of R&D put into these motors to make them strong, relaible, and a stock drop in that rocks the lake. I would go with the RZ (rear Exhaust RCMK). Most Rear Exhaust are ridiculous priced but I think Bruce just got more in and they are around 300 bucks. The only thing that I would insist on ordering with the RCMK is an EZ start. The pull start that comes with it can be a bear.
