More like 2 hp and 20K rpm(if that)
just going by what the add at amain says. If it is not true then probably nothing is with any of the engines right?http://www.amainhobbies.com/product_...-Standard-Plug

None of those numbers are honest for any engine. Put it on a dyno and you will see the true numbers. Either way anything over a .21 is pointless. But you know that.

went to the lhs and bought a couple of hot dynamite plugs and some cheap traxxas rtr fuel and took some head shims off.

Got it running good (part of the piston skirt is broken off from the last rod i blew)

so i been bashing the crap out of it all day, got temps up to 350

leaned it out had it screaming to high heaven!!!! Still good and has compression. I am surprised actually. I was waiting to at least blow a bearing

dem picco's can take a beating. can't wait to look at my clutch. Looks like a rebuild to keep me busy!!!

aaahhh. Good times i tell ya!

McCoy plugs aren't bad. I got a bad batch of them a few years ago but other than that, they have always been good to me. I don't run them anymore because all of my engines are Turbo plug. But not bad plugs at all.
