I totally disagree with your statement.
I myself have an OS TR and it is more than capeable in hanging with a 5 port collari or RBx12 mt12 turbo
The last 2 races I attended at my little track, I TQ'd one week and qualified 3rd

I feel everything being equal. Now if I was racing on a track with a 200-240ft back straight and proper gearing I might loose a little to these engines on HP, but I have never lost a race in the back straight always in the infied is a race won or lost

can u clarify? which OS engine is comparable and is a pilot shaft and serpent shaft the same as an SG? I'm assuming its different names for the same thing.

LOL, never mind, u already answered the first half of my question, but could u still clarify the second half?

The OS TR is comparable

serpent shaft is the same as SG shaft

Its kind of funny I have never heard the term serpent shaft and I have a serpent impact

I agree, it's just got different performance characteristics which require different gearing than say, a Nova based motor.

is it true OS engines are easier to tune, stay in tune longer, are very reliable, and last a long time? That's what i hear all the time.

big error curve compared to picco, ok got it, what about compared to novarossi or rossi based engines? I have an RBX12, and have found it to be pretty easy to tune.

Does anyone have the K factory low CG fuel tank? Everyone says to avoid the K factory stuff, but I was wondering maybe this one part is an exception? In short, good or bad?
