I never judge a motor by horsepower. Those figures are just calculated values. Both are great motors. I would be more concerned about glow plug price on the OS engine.

Pass you soon...

i am not saying if nova or OS is more powerfull, but surely not judge from hp readings.
Both motors i think they are very fast, but spec2 xz is just released so dont expect too many comments about it now.

Both are fast motors but ignore claimed numbers.

You can take both engines and put the same clutch set up put both in the same make car and it all cames down to, who is the better driver, at least that is what I think I do have an O.S. Speed .12 xz and mine is fast, But I wouldn't mine having the Flash

I think the easy tuning, maintenance and expected lifespan is more important to know between the 2
