thank you for the compliments...

I can see the c6 getting fantastic mileage.. the way they have the ports closed down it shows economy weighed heavy on the engine design.... Chances are I will take a slight hit to mileage with the mods I am doing to my C6......The motor will make better use of its fuel, but it still needs to burn more fuel to make more power..... I can improve the loop scavenging over stock quite a bit, but in the end mileage will still drop from stock...But the good news is there will be a pretty significant power increase to offset the slight economy loss... I do not run on clay tracks, all my tracks are dirt/soil so i need significantly more power then someone running on a hard clay track.

Thanks for the opinions. The choice is made..... OS V Spec (cost+performance). I have read that RB parts last longer, but being an infrequent club racer, i don't think it makes much difference. Overall i am paying $100 less by getting os. I saw the Novarossi 367.21(very tempting) but at the price of $550, it is way beyond my budget. Though it includes the pipe, extra plugs & other accesories. The track where i am playing is the size of 2 basketball courts. There are a few high slopes & a number of little jumps. Thanks again & enjoy this great hobby.

if thats a stock vspec you are buying look around for a OS 2050 pipe to go with it. A stock vspec/os2050 pipe in a buggy is a great combo. if you can't coin up for the os 2050 then go for the JP3 is work just about as good but with less fuel millage.
Have fun the vspec is a great mill.

This is good advice as well, we found the 2050 felt best on the stock V-spec as well.

Just thought I would throw this one out there. The MSR1005 pipe makes more power and torque from bottom to top than the 2050, 2060, or 053. Quite a bit more at that.

For pure low end grunt the 2050 would be great, but for mid to top end tracks, the 1005 screams.

The X-Dyno doesnt lie.. PERIOD. To put it simply it cant... it has no choice but to read the power thats put to it. And it has shown the Vspec has more power in the upper RPM range of any off road engine I have ever tested. EB Mods has also said he has experienced this as well in open forum. it has also proven the Vspec stock to stock to be more powerfull then the C67T. XRC just dyno tested the C6. SO I am not biased here. I honestly don't think the engine magically changes when u put it on the ground. lol There both great engines. But the power output has been proven time and time again by more then 1 party on a machine that has no choice but to be un biased. You cant really argue with that. Well I guess you could but.. lol. Now as far as what engine you chose to get that's all preference. There both great engines!! So IMHO you cant go wrong with either. Both have been proven time and time again.

I am talking about the 2007 and up spec Vspecs. If you had a earlier version they didn't have near as much top end power as the 2007+ Vspecs.

With the dynos did they use the correct pipes? Also, a dyno says little about drivability.

Yeah it does. You must not be able to read a graph very well.

Yes XRC used the RBs recommended 2045 pipe and the engine produced 1.18HP... They threw a MSR 1005 pipe on there which is there TEST pipe and it did about the same throughout the power band but peaked up to 1.39HP for a short burst and came right back down. it mostly hovered around the 1.2HP area throughout the pull until it started falling off on the top end.

Don't get me wrong I'm not saying the RB C6 is a bad motor AT ALL. I'm not saying ANYTHING bad about it at all actually. I'm only stating facts. The C6 is actually a great engine and I like both engines. I have no preference. I own and operate an X-Dyno and I see and modify MANY different engines and test many different engines on the ground and on the dyno. And I am just trying to straighten out mis information that so easily gets passed on Internet forums. Stock to stock the Vspec has proven to be a more powerful engine with a more powerful power band with more average HP through out its entire power curve. They both have been proven to win races and be liked by MANY drivers.. But what this discussion has turned out to be is "which engine has the most power" Well the Vspec is THAT engine. Average, peak and top end HP.

Please dont take any of this information the wrong way. I am only stating facts from actual dyno testing, and not by what I think im personally feeling on the ground or what my preference is. And I must make it clear that I am TOTALY un biased on either engine. I think there both top notch engines in there own way. And heck if every engine was the same then what good would that do all of us. We all have our own preference of what we like in an engine and how we all drive. Both are great... pick ur poison is how I see it.

I hope you understand that I am talking about the V Spec in my wording above. I to feel that the V Spec is the baddest stocker out and I run the hell out of them. The C6 is alot of hype according to the charts.

I hope you didn't do all that explaination for my sake as I feel the exact same way.

Any updates on the modded c6 Maximo?

Put them in a truggy then you will see which one makes power..

My C6BB Turbo head is pretty damn quick when tuned right, it pulls away from most .21's within about a 20-30 metre straight and hangs with the OS .28's most of the time (serious top end engine).

the vspec and the c6 are very close. for the extra cost of the c6, you could buy an aluminum head speed, and that motor will destroy any motor on the planet AND has 9 minute run-time.

I would get a Rb c6 over the Vspec. I have had both, and being honest, my vspec lasted about 2 gallons, and had little to no pinch, wouldn't hold a solid tune. I did change the bearings soon as i got it, so that was no issuse. Other hand, i have and still own 5 rb motors. 3 c6BB, and 2 ws7IIx3 motors. My ws7II motors have well over 12 gallons of fuel each, and are about 3yrs old now, and still kicking strong. My c6 motors run flawless, and i never had flame out issues at all. I do get great fuel miles out of both ws7 and c6 around 8-10 mins depending on what track and how hard i drive it.Also with rb motors running them between 240-270 drg. will wake there motors up. I have never run a OS speed, so i cant knock it, but if you want more for the money, buy RB if you want a long lasting motor and not have to buy another for years to come.
