true..
also i never heard of a taiwan engine lasting 8-12 gallons.
ill take any novarossi over any china,taiwan or japan mill thankyou,
spend a few extra and get longevity,quality,superior materials and durability.

I have been playing this game(on a tight budget) for some time now and have had and seen many asian engines last just as long as any engine on the market. Its easy to say that the engine is a copy, there isnt much to these simple tiny power plants

Man I gotta say that I have good luck with pretty much any engine I run.... GRP,Nova,Go,Picco,OS,OPS,Sirio etc...... Working on the different brands I do so some differences in the metallurgy, but for the most all these engines run good...Some may need a little pre-run TLC, some do not but for the most part once setup all these engines run good..... As for lifespan it all depends how you treat the engine....I can baby any engine and make it last 20 gallons, but there is zero chance of any engine lasting 20 gallons with the way I treat them, not even close.......If I get a good honest 10 gallons from an engine I think I am doing aces..... I frequent many tracks and know many racers and most guys go thru an engine every 8 gallons, and almost everybody overestimates how many gallons their engines have run....
