On straight line drag test could easily catch up the mighty RB WS7III. Very easy to tune and hold it well in every weather conditions....you need 2050 pipe for small to medium sized track or 2060 for large track....mine combined with werks 2013 pipe, it works very well...
Thanks, and yeah like I said i have a few EB Mods VSpecs and they are by far our favorite engines in the 8 years i've been racing... I still run the 2050 pipe with the original header... p6 plug, my dad tunes all of my engines and is extremely knowledgeable (been into r/c before i was even around) but now that i dont have my sponsorship anymore its time to try to cut cost and try something new

IMHO if you want to try something new...go with RB or Novarossi.... I also heard JP engines have the longest life...

ive run the werks B7's for the past year with great sucess they are a good strong motor and i havent seen crankshaft issues.

they are a strong mid to top motor but with the addition of the 2013 pipe it wakes the bottom up

Thumbs up in my opinion.
