Default Werks B3 2008 version

Anyone run the B3? How does it compare to a OS VSpec? I do mostly club racing. Track is small and technical with a few medium to large jumps. I also have a 007 Dynamite pipe. Can I use it with the B3?

great power with both b3 & b7 pro`s,but my crank broke at the head like the ninja did and sounds like alot of others as well,but the b7 pro had one of the hardest hitting mid ranges ive seen(more than my plus 21 7bt)

Did your engine have ceramic bearings? The new B3 comes with ceramic bearings to fix that problem.

Unless they have made MAJOR changes to the B3 recently I would not put the two engines in the same catagory.
The V-spec is a far better engine. The Werks has no where near the power of the O.S. and won't get the run time either, and don't even get me started on reliability!
No doubt there will be a whole lot of Werks fans on here defending their favorite brand, I went through 4 of the B3's in under a year and only one was 'acceptable'. Went to O.S. and OMG I found all the things that were missing...
I have ran both, so I can honestly say, go for O.S.
