they look a bit like the LRP motors. ZR .21 and .28 are there 8th scale offerings.

Why is anyone surprised?

Mario Rossi designed the GRP mfg./BOSS/Falcon/Mugen-Ninja 1st gen engines.

These look exactly the same (99.9%) on the outside.

Of what you can see of the sleeve, port config looks just like the old 7 port onroad.

Crankcase casting is near-same. Carb body too (duh).

Except this time he made the crankshaft he wanted instead of a cheaper, more economical unit (ala GRP/Losi).

They'll be good stuff

Edit: Wasn't claiming who mfg. these units; just who designed 'em

I believe these engines are Sirio based, the first prototipes were and then they were busy with an own design crankcase
