First of all he didn't lose by a few seconds... unless you're simply looking at the race print out. Hara had a 12+ second lead on him and basically rolled every major jump for the last 3 minutes. Even I could have narrowed the lead on him . For the entire race he was hitting the double double on the money every time (something Truhe had done in qualies, but didn't seem to be able to pull off as effectively in the final). Once he had an 12+ second lead he rolled this entire section. Let's give credit where credit is due here.

Yes we get the point: "i sell them for 400.00 shipped on here and 399.95 plus shipping on ebay", so you can stop posting it in every second thread.

I've run the C6 since it came out (the BB not the BBT). Never had the "flame out" issue. Changed 2 bearings (1 each) & 1 rod in 2 years running almost every weekend. A very good motor with all the power anyone would ever need. I have driven a car with the GRP in it and though it also felt very smooth with nice power delivery. I have driven some V-specs, they have a very good power band and are very drivable but I've seen 3 broken crank cases on V-specs at my local club track in less than the last year. OS would not do anything for these guys except offer them a discount on a new v-spec.

I didn't take anything anyway from Hara. I just said "if" Truhe was using a Speed he "probably" wouldn't of had to pit an extra time, and intern it would of been a to closer. Hara would of had to race hard to the finish, not baby it...

i run the grp also, its just a bit soft, with the grp and 8mm restrictor it was a dog, i switched to the associated 2035 pipe and 7mm restrictor and it was better, i still prefer the speed

I bet Truhe wished he picked OS vs GRP as his motor sponser. Fuel mileage IMO lost him the World Championship. Lost by a few seconds, he had to pit an extra time vs the OS Speed racers in the A-Main there.

I've driven an GRP and I hated it. I own a WS7 turbo l2g, and absolutely love it, its a stupendous motor. I just bought a C6 BB aswell, not sure why yet but it was too good of a deal to pass up... and although i've got raging boners for RB and am so biased its not even reasonable, I will totally admit the O.S. speed is a great motor, I would really like to try one, but personally I will never pay 500 bucks for an O.S. I grew up in RC when O.S. was a budge hack company for r/c CARS and am still pretty biased because of that.

"if" Truhe ran a different tune than what he did he "probably" wouldn't of had to pit an extra time. Thats an unreasonable scenario there.

Is anyone going to give some info on the Trinity Extech?!?! I was just wondering because I have heard stuff about this engine, and I was wondering what the general feeling is. I do not want to be directed to the Trinity engine thread because that's just a bunch of people saying how great it is, and I want real opinions and not just Hype.

For my money, it has to be made by Novarossi (RB's are Nova), OS or Picco or it's not worth wasting my time on.
