Talking WOW......

Les - I think you burnt your speedo on that one. Hopefully it was the one you wear and not the one you race! Scary image in my head. Make it stop!


I ran 1/8 nitro onroad when I was 15 at Brookhaven. Yes they had a track back then in the parking lot. I'm 38 now. That is messed up.
And, I have not learned a thing since.

Have you been running out at Jake's? We just got back from Houston RC Pro. The state RC Pro Series is at Indy next weekend. Hope to see you there.

Cain - The RG is wonderful. You do not need a head for it.
the OS 2050 makes them feel real good and smooth. The nice thing is the carb is very stable and easy to use for your first motor.

Good Luck,
TEX

Tex-I meant Nitro offroad.
I took off and wanted to go to the Pro but one of my very close friends got married on Saturday.
I can race another day.

Cain-
So is the OS VG a pig on fuel or is it more from a tuning issue?Not a pig on fuel and the O.S. is the BEST tuning motor on the market.PERIOD.Their Carbs are class acts.

Main thing is easy of tuning and how well it holds a tune, as a figure in this price range, the ones recommend should have some good pop to them.
Again.O.S. is the easiest to tune and holds it well.Great motor for the money.

Don't need anything insane as this will be my first real .21 engine (previous ones were all RTRs)
I would go with the VG over the RG.Better head,lil more power and so on.

Les

I second that.. OS carbs are hands down the easiest to tune and they hold there tune.. Very reliable and plenty of power.. Great for the price!!

Cain- go with the OS VG. OS makes THE best carbs and decent power for the money. I've got an RG that I'll be running this year ( hopefully) and with good driving, should have no problem keeping up with people.

about the pipes, I have run an RG with both a OS 2050 and a Ofna 086. The 086 makes better power than the OS pipe. The 2050 works much better on the V-spec and given that it is as expensive as the RG engine is kind of defeats the purpose. A Jammin JP-2 also works very well and they are pretty durable too.
