I'm trying to support my local hobby shop and his supplier has that engine in stock so I'm going to put a down payment on it tomorrow. What do you guys think??
You will be happy nice mill treat her right and you will get many many gallons best part with OS once it wears get the P/S pinched you just gained many more gallons best part the OS is their cranks their DLC coated they last super long thats why I run OS you can rebuild many times with awesome performace.

Thumbs up

Thanks!!

Now let me ask you this, what do you mean by gallons?? Will that engine last a full summer race season?
Also will it be a good mill in my sc8?? I'm looking for something with more bottom and mid than my stock engine in my sc8. Thanks all..

Gallons = the volume of nitro you burn thru your mill. For some, a race season might be 2 gallons, for others 20....it all depends how much you drive.

That engine will move your SC8 along very nicely, I know several guys that run it in truggy.

I know the Arrow has been awesome for everybody around here. tunes and runs like a v-spec for only 199.99. the sleeve is identical to the O.S. speed.

That's an awesome engine. Pricey though.. Treat it well.

Main advantage over the Argus, Alphas, and co.. is you should have an easier break-in.

Power-wise I think it'll rip. Especially on top-end. If you insist on focussing your power down low, run a 16T CB. I would run a 17 though because I like top-speed.

With an engine like that you really ought also to invest in an extra nice clutch - like an M2C. You need the right pipe too. Probably the Losi RE11(or is it the RE10? - the one identical to the 2050...)

You can also take the 2058 from Werks/Sirio/Orion, runs nice on a Ninja/Os/Speed

best inexpensive pipe for buggy is probably the dynamite 086hs , i much prefer the novarossi pipes but if you are on a budget they work great

I was a mechanic for a guy with the new Ninja a few weeks ago. Seemed to run very smooth, good mileage and no issues at all. He ran it with a 2060 pipe. He told me that OS ZX-B speed and the new Ninja wasn't the same engine.
An OS speed can't run with a 9901 pipe. A Swede tried this summer. Engine was very hot and he couldn't get the tune right. After he used 2x the prize of a 9901 to get the 2060... , his engine ran great and the temp dropped 20º Celsius!
