If you are looking to just start racing I would suggest looking at a dynamite xp series engine because they are very affordable and still are a competitive engine for racing. George stilliadis has had great sucessmover the last year with them and won the 2009 glorcs buggy championship using the engine A bonus to the dynamite engines are that they are distributed by horizon hobby, so almost every hobbyshop will be able to order parts... Etc or even have parts in inventory should something happen. If you buy an engine from an online source that is not either available from horizon hobby or great planes you can be stuck waiting for parts to arrive to that dealer and then be shipped to you. And in the meantime if you don't have a useable engine you will be likely to buy a new one if you have a race you want to go to.

If you want an engine that is very easy to tune, makes good power and will have a tractable powerband look no further then the Werk's B6... It has the best tuning carburetor on the market IMO...even better then OS.....This engine is Italian made, has excelent fit and finish and runs amazingly sweet.... For the $$ this engine cannot be touched, and even if you spend twice as much you will not get a sweeter running engine...

Take a look at the SH Engines. I run 5 different SH Engines and really like them. The SH .21 PRO engines have more than enough power for a buggy, I have raced my Z-Car Truggy with the .21. They are affordable and Excellent Quality. SH also makes most other well known brands. (LRP, XTM, DYNAMITE, LOSI and More) SH is available in Canada.

Another vote for Werks. The B5 and B6 are the two most popular engines in North America right now, and for good reason. I love my B5s.

The huge dent is now a small dent. I am pretty satisfied with that. I'll bring the pipe for you on Sunday.
