Nothing against RB but this is just a gimmick to get all the RB owners to buy a new mill. Same as the Hara OS. This is just my opinion though. Not a flame. It's done in marketing ALL the time.

looks like the only change is the tuned crank, not that much needs to be changed on this engine

Fast they are!

I always wonder about getting parts for these "Special Edition" mills. Most the time when companies do this in any industry, it's just a refresh of a product line unitl a new generation is released. Kinda in between product cycles.

I do love those heads thats for sure!

Being I am huge RB Fan I would agree on that. Really the only thing they could of did better with the C6 is ship Rody Roem with the engine and he is there for you all race day

Yup just a c6 with a slightly tuned crank. The coating on it only covers like 10% of the crank and it is just slightly bored and polished.

The crank is coated on side where the pin is. Thats really the only part that wears anyway.

I am still breaking in my "foreign" C6.

I agree my "normal" c6 is a rocket already.......I run it with a 5.5 venturi LOL, but it would be nice, to be one of the only ones at the race with that engine........
