Yeah, maybe he means 1500 more RPM. 15000 would be a stretch from 45000.

Yeah the Nikasil coated Orion Wasp engines were very special! But they were very hard to tune! But I've never had another engine in .12 size compare to one of those.

Acrually, that engine has done 62000rpm is a car tested with optic sensor.

Unless the car was running on pavement, that RPM measurement means nothing. Engine performance on a workbench means nothing.
