I agree, traction & getting power to the ground is very important, and I think the OS Speed does this best. However when running with factory drivers, you have to know they have their motors "right on the edge", and will gain 6-10 feet on you after mid way down the straight if your not tuned the same, or have equivalent power. Now ad this up.. (10' feet x 10 laps),.... thats a 100' feet they picked on you just on the straight, purely because they have more power. On the infield,.. and on your best day, you might hang with them for a lap, but then you hit the straight and they gain with nothing but better equipment, its just disappointing. Thats what I'm up against.... so do I need something with a bit more power on the mid and top..... YES! LOL!
Try the new Novarossi plus 21-7FMS..great top end..this motor was basically designed for tracks like Revelations..

the nova engines scare me alot. they tend to have bearing issues and flame outs... the 367 i bought was a great engine till i had to fill up and it was game over it flame out i even sent out to have it looked at and it all checked out good and tried all the little tweaks to make it work just nothing worked. But i do hear the novas a rockets. but just cant see the money spent if they cant fix there problems...

Personally I have never had any of the problems you speak of with Novarossi motors, I have heard of OS motors having rear bearing failure as well..not saying this doesnt happen to novarossi motors..it just hasn't happened to me..plus the Plus 21-7 is not a 367..I know that the 21-7BT was a popular motor at Revelations for a reason..it's fast..

No it is a new plug. They have a P3, P4, P5 and P5 from hot to cold.

I can't upload the graphs. ED at EB Mods has them.

So are we ever going to see these graphs?

Is the general concensus that the JX-21 Ninja stomps the new Orion CRF WASP .21 and the OS V-Spec/Speed motors?

Does it hold a tune well? Is it easy to find the tune?

Both the Speed and the JX21 hold a tune and are easy to tune. I'm very impressed with both motors, but if I had to pick only one, I'd choose the JX21.

Default O.S.

I race at rev's as much as i can in the sportsman class the driver are super fast there and a lot have gotten sponsored. let me tell you. your gear has to be dialed and you better have a motor c.crazy is fast as i do turn marshal for the pro/expert class. i have ran almost all motors and the speed has the best of both worlds top end and great fuel mileage. but at a price.the OS cost more then some rollers/kits. i just like that these motors are getting better.Its had to convince my wife that i need 400.00 (again!!!).

bought a ninja last for 299.00 on ebay, there was a 30% rewards refund, so that was a 98.00 savings. so 210.00 for a ninja, not bad at all!!
