Default Sirio S12-TRP 3 port

Any feedbacks on this engine guys? durability wise? am a newbie looking for an engine right now. am on a budget too so instead of going for the 5port, the 3port is my choice.

Sirio engines are fast and pretty easy to tune. However, it's hella hard to find parts. That's the only down side.

I am not sure about durability, I have not own one but a friend of mine has been modding engine for quite some times, and he told me the material is much softer compare with Novarossi when he was modding the crank shaft

just my $0.02

Default Hi

Sup. No need to buy crankshaft. If you live in the Philippines go to www.dogboneind.com. all parts are available. they are even willing to dismantle a brand new engine just to supply you incase they have no part in stock.

TB01. Italy still the best engine producer.

Hey if you can find parts for it then it's a great engine for the price. Don't get the o.s. TR(p) if you are gonna race. Won't be able to keep up. I know because I have one! Hehe..

Let me disagree with you. OS selling much more engines, Italian engines only use widely only in RC cars (for now), but if you look for airmodeling or boatmodeling, you will hardly find them.
