Default OS

1+ on the OS after running through many motor the OS has a great power band tuning is simple stays the same user friendly. Parts are ubundant and often posted for a discounted price since the VSPEC is a very popular engine. Two guys at my local track have the reedy motor from my observation top end lacks 1 guys has it posted for sale almost brand new. Personal I run a OS world II with the EB button this thing is a monster >> thanks frank his suggestion. The ninja is also made by OS if you looking for something between a Speed / World from a standard VPEC that's a great selection its a 5 port great for long straight aways.

i use the reedy on everything ......( but if u have got one of the first batch mills change your bearings the r bad they r too tight which causes friction in the engine which = heat 270-290) change the bearings and u will be shocked i get oer 12 min in buggy an 15 in truggy and never reach 220 that is with losi re11 pipe pm me for partnumbers on the rearings i use

I have a ninja now. It's much smoother then the vspec, easier to drive and rips like no tomorrow.

Oh. the crank never wears. just replace rod and bearings every few gallons and should last a very long time.
did you read his post? not a stock vspec,pro mod that comes with a hard coated crank. if your motor was out at 5 gallons, it was run lean,go figure

me too i use the same set-up reedy with the RE11 i temp around 240-250 though. My low end has been getting alittle lean later on in the mains but i'll get it sorted. It isn't flaming out at all really and it's just getting faster. My buddy had a bearing issue but mines been good so far.

This engine isn't slow by any means. I don't think it's the fastest but it's got ill runtime and good power and is smooth. I am really happy so far.

I know it is not included. why not novarossi plus 21-4? 12 min run. You sure save time for refueling. Do you how difficult it is to make up the time in refueling?

jx21 without a doubt. I have a +4 as well and it might be pretty good in your truggy if you want bottom, but the ninja is smooth as glass and the top never ends. I got 9:40 last night in a race running rich in a buggy. It had more power with runtime then any engine out there.

Anyone know where to pick up the OS Speeds, either the ALUM or MAG head? Im looking to get two of those babies.

has anyone every ordered from rc-toro or rcmodel? They have pretty good prices, just kind of iffy about it. I'll be spending almost a $900 on engines.
