yeah he is running the wrong plug, its shimmed for 30% and its to cold, ours run at 235 almost always sometime 230 and other time 240. he needs to run the OD 87T or 97T plugs, they are cheaper and better. also run 30%, he will get better run time and alot more power.

After testing the new xz speed I would definatly consider the os xz line of engines. They are awesome. The xz speed pulled as hard as the 25 that I have been running in my truggy.

Talking Axe Rossi

Hmm. I have owned a few Axe Rossi Early 400 plus dollar engines from a long time a go. Break in takes forever.

Now, that being said. I still have both my Rossi LSK, which I just put back into service. Needed a new Front Bearing. I lost count as to how many gallons on that thing.

The other engine is a Rossi Black Magic. Again, that's about a $500 dollar engine. Alien looking head,but, what an engine.

So, I kinda think you get what you pay for.

I will say, the only engine I would consider a low budget engine is a Werks engine.

I'm not calling it a low budget engine, but, I'ts the cheapest engine I own. Werks B7 or a .28.

Both combined don't have as many gallons through them as my LSK and my

LSK has more compression than both. (Actually, thats wrong, I just rebuilt

(new Piston/Sleeve/Con Rod/Bearings) my Werks .28 and it hasn't been fired yet)
