I have one. IMO, the non-pro version is extremely weak. It had plenty of bottom-end but man, but lacked mid and top-end.

We tried different pipes and clutch set-ups with little success. The OS XZ, Mach 427, Ninja .28 are all better performing engines in my experience...

i tried a lot of different things...1.0 springs, 1.1 springs, werks clutch, all kinds of mugen style Al shoes...as for pipes ive used all of the JP's, werks 2013, OS 2050 and 2060, dynamite 086, 053 pipes and a few others, and was not happy...i have owned around 30 racing nitro engines, so i know what im doing, the engine just didnt fit my needs or my truck, but it is still a good engine just not for me...

that is not quite true..pete's motor seen some overheating for sure, pete does not know how to tune that well.....it was well past break in when the piston dropped... I mean we had already been hammering the snot out of that motor for quite some time.....regardless Mugen warrantied the mill no question........ pete's .21 is working fine now as well, he has his LSn way out of whack....... Daryl's Ninja is acting up, but thats because he sucked in a tablespoon worth of sand................. Ninja's are wicked motors, easy to tune and excelent powerbands.... the person who is having issues is a personal freind of mine, who really has no experience tuning an engine.... His 28 did fail, but it is under warranty, hos .21 is all lack of needle turning.....
