Default New OS Hara Edition Engine

O.S. Engines have unveiled their new 21 VZ-B V-Spec II ABC - Hara Edition Speed Tuned Racing Engine. I reckon this engine would be more than $500 in price. Has anyone got any info on this?

Here is the link: http://www.neobuggy.net/modules/news...p?storyid=4901

Drilled/Lightened AL head is the only visible changes. Same style as the JX B01A head.

ezveedub is correct, I saw this motor on display at the iHobby show yesterday morning. It will also include 6.5 & 7mm carb restrictors, as per the information that the OS/Futaba rep had provided. Don't look for it to be available until late November/early December. They are just trying to capitalize on Hara's win, purely all marketing for some additional sales.

For $550 I rather stick with my stock Vspec which is fast enough.

I will stick with my OS Speed. I am well over 5 gallons and still running strong.

Is the lightened AL Head the only difference?

Tower is notoriously overpriced. It lists the v-spec aluminum head version for 500.00. The average street price for that one runs at around 385.00.

Definitely not a good idea to benchmark Tower's street cost. I don't think the OS v-spec II will come close to their listed 550.00
