Has anyone tried the new Orion Wasp REV CRF .21 or .28?

I know the .12 is out and the results seem to say alot.

Just curious b/c I have a great OS.30 in my CRT now but want more of race motor when I start to compete here soon. Not to say the OS .30 isn't race worthy. It is but it feels tame. Maybe I will send it in to be Mod'd not sure yet.

I had great luck with the RB WS7 it had 5 gallons on it when I sold all my nitro stuff two years ago. It had the same compression as my newer RB S5. I was going to just buy the RB .28 8 port and call it a day but I really want to see what that new Wasp is all about.

i have a hyper 21 8 port pro which has had 62 ltrs of 25%
it finaly gave up after 2 years i think it comes down to how
you look after your engine after a day at the track
picking a engine comes down to how much money you want to spend

I have a novarossi 21 Plus 5 and it's by for the best engine on the market. There are plenty or great engines on the market but nothing can touch this thing. It's got the same, if not more, power on the bottom than a P5 and pulls away from 421's on the top. It's the best of both worlds. I didn't even get it modded and it kills modded p5 & 421's on a regular basis. The 7 port collari has a little more low end but there the most powerful low end motor on the market. For all around top preformance the 21 plus 5 is the motor to get.
Now if I can stay off my lid I might be able to win some races.

Keep in mind also...that power doesn't necessarily win races. There are a LOT of racers across the country that would probably produce faster lap times with an O.S. RG

thats the truth..i started out running 8th scale with an RG....then i got better and started winnin races...then i got horspower...had to start all over again and learn how to drive with power.

i work in a building within a hobby shop and there are a lot of people that start out with mods and they never really seem to get any better....

sometimes the power is just for the fun factor

I have B7's and an RG. I enjoy driving the B7 more but I usually go faster with the RG.

I run the collari 3 port. Awesome motor, Never had any issues. I average 7-8 minutes. Around $179, It's worth it.

I would say get an OPS Speedster Torque version.It's only 370 and it comes with a pipe that you can adjust.They run a lot cooler too.Normal temps for an OPS are about 170-190 and 8-10 minutes runtime.OPS Speedster

If one of their sponsored drivers tell you about it then they knock 20 bucks off.And I'm breaking-in mine right now you have to put a sock or something on the head to get it to 200.And there's also a video of Chris Crews on the link I posted.

i did some voodoo on my P5 and worked just fine.
it involves a small torch, cold water,and some needle nose pliers.
i god awesome results with this process:: take the piston and sleeve out of the crankcase, hold the piston halfways in the sleeve(with pliers on the con rod by the piston head ) , with a micro torch heat the top part of the head, once hot you drop the sleeve in cold water and this "shrinks" the sleeve on the top part,once the sleeve is "shrunk" on the top side, heat up again but this time without the piston on it, once verry hot insert the piston about the same amount as the piston travels in the sleeve, let it cool down by itself on a metal surface(about 30 minutes), then take a fine honing tool and a drill(i used a matco brake cylinder honer), run it with your drill inside the sleeve going forward and back for 30 seconds (add water with soap), then use 1500 grit water snadpaper and insert the piston and sleeve back in the engine crankcase. break in the engine as it was new.(about 6 tanks) and you will get a couple more gallons through it or more. i got 4 engines that i got as "parts engine" and worked great and 3 of then are P5 engines.
just make sure the piston and sleeve are worn out . of course it wont work for everyone and make sure you use the necesary precautions. this is my 2 cents about engine "salvaging".....

WOW this is quite the place for engine opinions Personal expirience running these engines now for over 20 years is if you don't break them in proper your just going to ruin it a lot quicker! Doesn't matter who makes it! Some last longer than others due to quality issues but if you stick with the ones that have been around the longest ...... and NO ONE can dispute this NO ONE !! The OS RG is absolute KING !! They have been around and running awsome since the early 90's and only cost about $105. You will definately find faster engines and more powerful engines but REMEMBER THIS Why is this engine still on the market ???? BECAUSE IT WORKS !!! If your new to the sport this is the engine for you ,then like some of the others have said ,when you need more power then step up ,but you will definately have to learn to drive all over again ,and your car set-up will most definately need tweeking !!
