Buggy 9 = C6 with a new head
WS9 = WS7 with a new head
etc.

Who ever came up with the idea to re-name the
'09 RB line-up the way that they did should be given a good beat down. It sure does make it
hard to choose an engine and to order parts
for an engine.

just to complete:
WS9 has the M.E.S. system now, compared to the older WS7
S7 = Series 9
S5 = Hobby 9 (most under-estimated engine!)
S3 = Junior 9

The S5 is hardly a HOBBY mill. What an under rated engine. I LOVE mine!

They shoudl just stuck with something like s3 s5 s7 for the sport line and maybe R3 R5 R7 for the race line. Hobby sport junior. How retarded. I dont think I would any engine called a junior. I would by an s3 or s5 though.

yep, when heard the name C6 you knew it meant business, like some grade of explosive.

But buggy9? jeez, why not call it the Pussy9? At least I could get something out of that....

worst rebranding ever!

has anyone also noticed RB removed their users forum? all that archived discussions with Rody providing valuable info gone. I went looking for it to find some regarding the rt28 and came away

This makes me regret buying my V-Spec. I was always planning on getting the S5 but then the cost for the 2045 pipe along with tons of people running OS and Nobody running RB in southern california swayed me away.
