Default Question about OS V spec. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have about 7 or 8 gallons of 30 % nitro through my OS V spec and it still runs great but just recently it feels like it is losing it's "pinch " not complaining at all because it has been and still is a awsome motor but when or how do I determine when it is ready for a new "piston , rod , sleeve " ???? I twist it over and it feels weak but it still runs good ? I don't know what to do . Thank for the replies everyone !!!!

if it still runs good don't worry about it. you already have a good amountof fuel through it. If it blew up tomarrow, I'd be happy with it. then you replace parts

When it starts to flame out and you can't keep it running, that's when you get it pinched, and buy a new rod. or think about a new motor, and use this one as a back up one.
