It shouldn't be too hard to move these engines now. Support in the USA should be better now than ever before....and they are badass mills.

Is it smoth power or like a light switch? This motor is on my list of powerplants to try. I've only run OS VZB's and thinking of a C6 but this Radical engine has got my interest.

smooth as glass man
you run a o53 pipe or a ninja or grp pipe and it evan smoother
i ran a os 2060 on mine and liked but they say it get even better millage on the 053 or ninja pipe

all i can say is i am a beliver in radical power

the motors are made by boat guys so they are used to big load and need lots of oil. the bearing will last longer then any other because of it

power

Yea, I've used OPS before in boats and loved them. But I never needed to get off the throttle, so I'm not sure about how the powerband hits.

Thanks for your thoughts.

They are very smooth I'm running my 2 with JP3 pipe.

In my Hellfire I get more than 10 mins of run time and RC8 I get around 8 mins. But when I got the buggy I figured it would be the same or better. It turns more rpm so I'm guessing thats where the fue is going
