what makes you think you have to replace a Go rod any sooner than a Novarossi, RB, O.S., etc?

Are the OS Vg series motors any good? I am sure they are not like the Vspec motors but has anyone tried these motors?

they're good until they hit the 2 gallon mark, where usually there's no compression left and starts to get hard to tune, hard to start, flame outs, etc. Not always happens but 80% of the guys I've read that have used the VG have had this problem, including my self which had 2.

Thats not a real engine and its like over a year old. Thats a fake thing they made to attract people at a booth. Its a 1/8th scale on road Centax Clutch. That wouldn't even work right.

As for your comment earlier and your signature. Vspecs are one of the best engines out there they are just on the high maintenance side.. The only negative things I've seen is from people who don't know how to take care of engines.

The OS Speed V-Specs aren't high maintenance at all. The glowplugs last forever and don't need much tuning at all once they are broken-in and race tuned. We change the glowplugs only becuase we think we should. I think we've only replaced the glow plug 2 or 3 times in 6 gallons.

Well I'd like to thank everybody for there thoughts and opinions it's greatly appreciated. My only experience with nitro's have only been with the cheapo RTR engines and that seems to work for most of the guys at my track. But I got this awesome RC8 kit, and I know I can set it up to put me in the winner's circle, but I don't wanna have to worry about some engine not being able to perform the task. Plus to be honest manufacturers spec only tell a part of the story, and yeah I know some of you get annoyed by threads like this, but with out them people can't learn anything. So again, Thanks!!

Default wasp

I have the Orion CRF 21 Wasp in my mbx5t and I love it. it's a little pricey but well worth it. I also have a Werks B7 in my mbx5r tuning is tough but well worth it.

What starter boxes will work with these vehicles without having to modify anything?

Ive seen plenty of them GO tink! The motors are made in Taiwan, they have much much lower standards for aluminum then say Italy, Europe or the United states. Sure its cheaper but why take the chance of having a weekend ruined due to material inconsistencys

The reason Go rods are so reasonably priced is smart manufacturing, Every .21, .25, .28 Go engine uses the same rod. That means 8 engines, 3port sport, 3 port race, 5port race, 7 port race, .25 sport, .25 race, .28 sport, .28 race. all use the same connecting rod. This allows them to mfgr. huge numbers of rods in one run, quantity drives the price down.

Smart manufacturering

Czech your argument holds no water, are you saying that Italy has superior brass (sleeve) or that there chrome is superior?

You are saying that the crankcases are cheap? I believe that O.S. crankcases probably have the worst reputation of any brand. Other then that what other material inconsistancy is there? The connecting rod, the connecting rod is designed to work in a .28 engine. The bearings are stamped Italy cause that is where they are made.

I would be offended if I thought for a minute you might actually know what your talking about
