Default sorry to do this

Hey guys,

want some advice im completely torn between two engines for a replacement in my mbx6

now these are the only 3 im considering after running some others, i dont normally ask these questions but id like other peoples info on them

rb ws7 3 l2g
os v spec/speed
Team orion crf

the only downside to the speed is the cost in the uk 280gbp!!!

What do you chaps think, im after run time reliability life span and ease of tuning.

Provided the OS Speed doesn't suffer from the same bearing issues the early V-Specs did then I don't think you can go wrong with it. I've run the older and newer versions of the V-Spec and love them both. I can only image how much a$$ the Speed kicks.

Hara won worlds with a V spec not a speed. depending on the track i would go with either a VZB V-spec or a OS Speed, if your track is blue groove and more open track go with the Speed, If your track very tight with lots of corners and is loose go with the VzB Vspec.

on a looser track the speed would be better also, because its smoother, there isnt really a situation were the speed wouldnt be good unless its out of your budget

i wouldnt say that so easily i have had 2 os engines previously,

standard v spec - bearings blew after 3 gallons

os speed - never ran right from the start was acknowledged to have a problem but os refused to warranty it ,

on the other hand i have seen them run at the track and they are very good motors but i just wanted a overall opinion on the others
