i would not spend 279 when you can get the actual +4 for 30 bucks more, thats all that engine is, its a crappy version of the +4

It doesn't sound like it's any lesser quality than the +4, just less expensive. Plus with Losi's name on it you can assume Horizon warranty service should you need it. Not sure why you'd spend $30 more for a purple head.

I'm sure it will be a good engine, and unless you have any special insight into its exact features and have run it, why even offer an opinion? That's 3rd grade stuff...

i think with the losi name on it you will at least get excellent customer service,also replacement parts (p/s/r and cranks)will be less expensive and readily available.
anyway hats off to losi for not producing another asian mill.

i am using common sense, novarossi isnt going to make an exact engine and let losi put there name on it to sell for less, and i will put my opinion where ever i feel needed, if you dont like it dont come on this website.
