About a year ago there were racers that were spoted with .21zx motors. I heard about it as well as saw it in extreme RC rac mag. Not sure in the issue number.

I run multible speeds and nova's, p5's bf's a +4 and a Toro.
I shelved the toro after a gallon and a half due to the soft bottom, sent it off to Powerhouse to have it worked, and is now my truggy engine of choice.

Absalutely screams all through the powerband. Its not quite as good on milage as the +4 or speeds, but gets the job done. 9 mins easy on high bite track...

ran toro last season tuned easily and just plain ripped. i did clutch it a little heavy to get that bottom grunt i wanted. ran a vspec about four years ago great bottom ok top but it did not last nearly as long as any of the other engines i have run in 10+ years. well i lied it did last longer than my axe rossi lol.

Yeah Mark is definately the man!
Frank i never had a problem with quality on any nova mill, always lived up to expectations. I just had high hopes with the Toro mounted in a Truggy, and i just couldnt get the punch i like, mid and top are very comparible to your speed mills.

I know you have had good luck with your speeds, and most do. But i also think you will love a powerhouse tuned Toro.

As far as the tune, yes the speed is a little easier, it has a broader range where it will run well. Imo the Toro is not any differant or harder then any other Nova mill, few exeptions.

I love the Toro now and i will be getting another for 2010 season.

Just my oppinion and thought i would share.

I actually have a powerhouse Toro that I just finished breaking in, I just like to know what people think and what their experiences have been. I am letting it loose on Sat.

hello

just my 2 cents, i run 2 nova engines, and used an OS before, Novas are great but getting the right tune is a bit hard, with an OS, you set it and forget it, it runs great with great Milage...both are great engines but my next engine will be an OS for sure

cheers
Ali
