I got all the engines I could get and have a few to last me for a little while. I love them and just recently had to purchase them for retail price. They are great engines IMO. Once I can't get them any longer I will probably go back to a speed most likely.

Hopefully things work out with them...

Alan, NOT KNOCKING YOU HERE AT ALL, I am just interested in your view point here, you are one of a few I know that have had good luck with the GRP motors. I know you know the inside scoop, is GRP gonna make it and was the whole switch of Drake and Truhe totally based on the engines or is it just normal business. I know you are blistering fast everytime I see you and you obviously have had good luck with GRP, I know alot who have had alot of trouble with them. Is it tuning, breakin or were most the problems the first batch???

I have to say the GRP is still one of the best engines around. It was one of the first engines to to 10 minutes in a National race. Are there newer engines out that are better. Yea, but that will always happen. I still love my GRP's but i am down to only 2 after selling 2, and burning up 1 this past weekend.

Mike will continue to use Xcelorin for all his electric equipment in both 1.8th and 1.10th.

Default ninja engines

hey all: Not to get to far off subject,but looks like mugen is trying to market their ninja engines to every nitro driver not just to the mugen owners and team drivers. Also how does the jx .21 differ from the vz-b .21 in terms of price performance and avalability? Thanks for the info

That is pretty far off subject. Try the JX ninja thread. The Ninja is probably my favorite engine right now.
