Questions?? OS Speed V-Spec II question

I am very interested in this engine. I have an 8t 2.0. Anyone using this engine in a truggy, gearing? Or any pointers on tuning or pipe selection? When dies this engine come alive after tuning do I need to wait till a gallon to really open it up? Any help would be appreciated.

i ran a speed in my truggy it has pretty good power but i had to run it a little hotter then i like to make the power strong enough for the truggy, i found the jp3 to be the most powerful on the bottom with that engine, but a little weak on the top, you would be better off with the ninja jx in the truggy it has more grunt, i run it with a 2060 and the ebmod head button and it can easily go 10 mins when i want to and makes a ton of power

Agreed. The ninja is an AWESOME truggy engine. And quite a bit cheaper than the speed. Any OS engine breaks in very quickly. I reccomend the losi re11 pipe for the money.

Sounds like may be I should have went with my second choice a nova toro. Does the speed lack torque or just no hp? What temp is ok for these engines? I tune to smoke and performance but use temp as a backup.

Speed's are very fast engines. IMO it is plenty for a truggy, just the ninja is a LOT cheaper and IMO just as good for a truggy. If you already have the speed, run it. it will treat you well and be plenty powerful. 240 is fine, I usually run around 230 getting awesome power and over 10 minutes of runtime. Speed's are awesome engines!

Steel fly wheel or alum fly wheel for the speed in the 8T 2.0? I have been running GRP will I notice much difference compared to the speed?

I ran the steel flywheel with two Al and two carbon shoes this weekend and I really liked it. Motor seemed smoother.

Aluminum flywheel. IMO only a high power .28 warrants a steel flywheel in a truggy. Speed is a very smooth engine as it is. You will notice tons more power and better runtimes.

Al fly wheel is good also, what I always run, but the screw head striped out so i had no choice but to run the steel. I run the OS 2060 pipe.
