Yes, I've had great results with that engine. I run it in a truggy and it's got everything! Good low end and Great top end. I run it with a Werks 086 pipe and V-conicle header. I'm really pleased with it.

I have two of these motors and they are really great. I have two gallons on my first motor and it runs like a champ, holds a tune all day also.
Im actually about to put my second one on E-Bay as we are running more 1/10th scale these days. It is brand new. I ran 3 idle break in tanks this weekend and that is it. 200.00 if you want it. Paid like 300.00 two weeks ago.

This engine is the same engine used by Ryan Cavalieri and Cody King in their Kyosho buggies/truggies.

I would say this is a rare engine. Fewer shops carry it, and fewer (none) carry the replacement parts for it. For those that already have the engine, please call Team Orion directly when you need replacement parts.

If you are interested in purchasing this engine, you can order it through your local hobby shop, who in turn will order it from us. Or you can contact Team Orion directly to purchase one.

I think that this is basically the same engine as the Picco P7-R (Evo1-2?) if so it is a great motor. I've used it in a Jammin CR/CRT, and a XB8TQ. Tons of power in all, until it started to wear out (not sure how much fuel I had through it). It does hold a tune very well, and is very reliable.

I think the engine you are thinking of is the latest Fantom FR21 engine. That is based on the same paltform as OPS and Radical.

Yes that is the engine that I was thinking of. Sorry to all the people that I offended by making an honest mistake since most of the electric motors from Orion and Fantom are based off the same mill, I figured that was also true with the nitro engines but I guess I was wrong

Default Cody King is Switching Engines for 2007

Just a quick announcement. Cody King is switching motors, and sadly will not run for Team Orion in 2007. It is a bitter sweet deal, as we are excited about the future, but also loved running Orion products.

I want to say a HUGE thank you to Team Orion for their support of Cody over the past couple years. They believed in Cody when he made the class jump and started racing the factory classes in 2005, and we really appreciate it. Cody and I are proud of his accomplishments this past year, with two top 10s at the biggest 1/8 scale races of the year, and a podium finish in the hotly contested ROAR 1/8 Gas Truck class this year. Team Orion engines played a big part in those finishes, no doubt.

I can't say enough about what a class act Rick Howart is, and what a privilege it has been running for him. Thanks Team Orion!
