There Sirio made, so there like the new sirios. Based off the old werks motors, but with different bearings and carbs. Pretty dang good motors.

Ive always been under the impression that Star Motor company IS Sirio. Sirio is just there marketing name? Thats what Ive been told.

Default motor

I got the 08 B3 for a race at SRS a small track that was hosting the Arizona State Championships and the motor gave me nothing but problems with the bearings, and ran super hot in Arizona with the small 8 fin head (summer time) I am sure it would be ok in the winter. So the $200 motor got real expensive. Now the motor is Killer, it has a Novarossi Trinity Phatt Head on it, a CEO sleeve, and TKO bearings on it. If you run on a small track and want to spend the money this is a great way to go. my friend ran it at the Nitro Pit last week and the 3 port held it's own out there Jammin fast kid Tanner S. runs the 7 port and the motor is super fast. Run strong clutch springs and use the Sirio 2013 pipe.

i plan on gettin the B7 for my truggy. I drove a buddies RC8T with the B7 Pro in it, man what a motor. The truck had plenty of power, super responsive, and it screamed down the straights. Beings i can't seem to find a good motor, mainly cuz im running what i had, damn HPI, what a piece. Ne way, looking at getting one real soon.

I've been running Werks motors for the past 1.5 years, first the TL B7 and then the Pro TL B7. These motors scream! I've never had an issue with either of mine and these were my intro into higher end mills so you can imagine that my tuning skills were not the best.

As for the B7 not having any bottom end, that is simply incorrect. What is he comparing it against a 3 port? Of course, as you add ports you take away from the bottom end to some degree, however, I never felt my Werks B7 running in my XT8 truggy let me down or lacked in any way on the bottom. I ran a JP1 pipe on it and I was good to go.

Great motor at a great price!

i will say one good thing about werks... the 2013 pipe is a great pipe for power and sound but it's downfall is the stinger is not strong i know a few peeps that had them bend .
