Nope, but let us know how it is. I had to decide between the OS Speed and the Sirio STI, I chose Sirio!!

I just got mine. Major sleeve cuts. I haven't run it yet but I've heard that it has problems with run-time.

And why did they flip the heat sink to read from the exhaust side...most engine companies do it from the crank side. I flipped mine thinking they made a mistake. It should not matter.

i recon it is up there with the sirio evo 3 for value for money and performance. (it is a $450 motor, landed).

OS, Ninja, sirio, these are the next big brands. novarossi sort of shot themselves in the foot.

i heard the .12 plus 3 from nova is a big "f u!" to the competitors and they went all out in cramming everything they could into it....we will soon see.

Well, I mentioned it to Yriah Murnan, and he recommended the Sirio over the OS Speed. That's the reason I made my decision. Based on someone who tests and modifies engines, a value his opinion. As you can see I have 2 OS's, so I decided to venture out a little!!

I'll be there a week from today, playa. Got plenty 'o' stickers for ya...and maybe some more. I've got two EB Mod OSs as backups in case this OS Speed sucks too much fuel. I'll break it in this weekend too...or maybe on next tuesday when I'm there.

HEE HAW!

Got mine this weekend. Hope to break it in soon. From what I've heard, it eats up fuel.

Cool

According to a racer in my country, the OS Speed (Factory Tune) is no match for the Kawahara Zac Concept OS TZ.....
But the OS Speed is a legal engine...
