uh... think again. Sirio is powering into the future, and the others are gasping for air Novaboy. They have more OEM too.

I would say that you sounded more like an immature fan boy..But I know that Sirio makes a good motor..I would say in a lot of areas the Novarossi and RB motors are more popular and better known..In my area most run the OS V spec. I am one of the few that actually own a Sirio motor (I have it in a Revo) but I do own a few novarossi and RB motors..you cant say that one of them is better than the other..

The same could be said about any high end motor, it amazes me how much arguing goes on over motors, who really cares... buy one... race it... lose with it!!!

I do not think the Sirio engines are nearly as good as being said.... I have watched the Sirio built WERK's engines fall apart for the last 2 years, and of course i just watched 2 CL7B's fall apart the same way due to crank failure....... The motors are decent running motors if you dont mind having a weak bottom end.... The feel like they have half the bottom end of a V-Spec and 1/3rd the bottom of a JPX 21...howver they do have a pretty good top end charge, but unfortunately they are pigs on fuel , definitely one of the most inefficient .21's your going to find today....... IMO these engines are nothing but hype, they do not last and they are far from being the powerhouse some people claim..... To sit here and claim Sirio's last as long as Nova's and RB's seriously makes me laugh..... ask anyone with experience with WERK's engines and ask them the lifespan of Sirio products LOL


anyways here is where 2 CL7B's failed...drilled out to less then 1 mm at the end of the crank right from factory

Yes I removed the red silicone and filled the void with white filler...but other then removing and replacing the filler i did nothing else to that area of the crank.... hell its almost milled to the point the bit would start coming out the front of the crank....I think its less then 1 mm thick LOL !

Currently turned to sirio's myself at the moment after running a few brands of motors im just trying to find the perfect match for me its prooving elusive to say the least

im running the little 3lb motor and i have to say its a beast for the money it costs very quick down the straight and lots of bottom end grunt and the best bit i can do 10mins with it

looking at trying that green kanai motor but not heard much about it yet
