Default Werks B7 pro 21 '08 spec'

What do people think of this motor? I'm currently running an OS Speed which i find to be a great motor and i want to know how the werks compares?

I've heard that the past Werks engines had issues with the con-rod and crankshaft. I do not know if that applies to the '08 versions...

+1 on Bobbyblaze. I snapped 2 cranks running normal temps. I wouldn't choose a Werks over a sportwerks motor at this point.

It's a fast motor if you can get it to run right and doesn't self destruct.

i would stick with the speeds, its hard to beat them, good bottom, good top, reliable and easy to tune, if you are looking for a new one i sell them on ebay for 399.95 under the name cjm-recycling

That sounds like an awsome deal.... is that for the AL or the MAG?

Don't get me wrong people, I LOVE MY SPEED!!! it's just that $600AUD is a lot to pay for any motor reguardless of how good it is! Just thought id ask about the werks so i knew of any issues before buying one! looks like i might re-think my choice!
