GRP... Engine... Thread...
Check out this thread. I think it will answer most of your questions. I have a .21 with pipe and it screams. Definitly would recommend this engine for someone familiar with the hobby. I wouldn't recommend it for someone just coming into it though...can be very tempermental.

According to the article and a few people that saw it, it was an OS motor with a GRP head.

Truhe runs GRP and he took the Buggy Nats, so I'd say a GRP won the nats.
