Wow, you can go to a website and grab what they say for horsepower...
As per RB Products:
We have many request of how much RPM or HP our engines make and all we can tell you is that since there is no industrial device for measuring these engines we have decided not to publish these figures since we think that most of the figures published are not always very realistic, so we prefer not to just put on paper some HP or RPM.
Even RB thinks that the numbers that Nova posts are BS.
Ever notice how most foreign countries use the metric system? They dont even USE HORSEPOWER to measure with, they use KILOWATTS. They post HORSEPOWER because they know that there are ignorant americans that will buy it because it says so on the box... so it MUST be true!
But if you buy engines just because of what the label says, then good for you. Traxxas has some products for you that'll get your vehicles up to 70+!
Now I'm going to say it again... if there are people buying this OS engine just because of what it says for performance on the box, there are going to be a LOT of disappointed people out there. I've tried out a .12 TG, its slow
, I'll keep what I run instead.
