I don't know if they're are back but i'm surprised this motor does not a composite carb. What's up with that? That like, as step back in tech.

none of the OS motors do... its actually worked out pretty good for them... because their engines have been known to have very reliable carburetors..

If I run enough truggy to wear out my Jammin .21 I might give one of these a shot. Looks to be about $15 more than the standard .21 VZ-B. Smooth VZ-B style power with a torque boost would be nice for truggy. For me the VZ-B doesn't have enough torque in a truggy.

Then u have ur tune off cause those vspecs r close to the best usable power iv drivin with truggy, I will say this tho the 25 is ridiculous like the 28.

And you say I try out all the new stuff. Looks like you do too
I just can't imagine there is an engine out there that will top the os speed for all around performance. And now that I have this powerhouse modded speed it seems to be so smooth and spin so free I can't wait to get a gallon through it and see what it can really do. Let us know how the .25 does.

Couldn'T resist price was right but you made jealous with the NERO/SPEED Mod if the 25 is able to increase run time 10-12 min since the 28 gave me 9-10 with less power I'm sold. Question is how many gallons can she take and parts? The speed OMG with the EB button mated with a 2060 ultimate combo and with Marks mod can even imagine. Are you still running the EB button with the Modded Speed?
