Questions?? INDENTIFY .12 NITRO ENGINE!

I Bought a engine in china and i only know that its a .12 engine and its a copy of a famous Chinese brand(so he told me). I would like to know what kind of brand it is and posible the specification of it (HP and RPM mostly) or just the model number.

have attached a picture of it.

There is no "famous Chinese brand"
It looks almost like a clone of an SH

That would be my guess. I have no idea what it is though.

Default Carb

Thunder Tiger had a few blue ones to I think. I'm not at all familiar with .12s though. The carb looks identical to some of my airplane engines. Whatever it is, for $30, I'd just run it until it pukes.

looks a bit like a .15 kyosho engine.but with rotary carb..donno much bout .12 engines..quit 1:10 for 2 yrs nw..full time offroad racing 1:8 scale,but my opinion is to get a better one,but for $30..run it till it blow..get a new one ( eg : nova/os)

saw a local guy at my place who bought a rtr china 1:10 truck..the engine only last him a few days..(less than 5 tanks) and now the car is hanging in his room as a display..
