This is also in the nitro engine zone. They have a thread for the OS TZ engine. I do like the engine. It is competitive. The parts are also cheap compare to others.

The only thing out this motor that bothers me is that is does not like to accept certain turbo plugs from other manufacturers. You pretty much have to use OS turbo plugs, which costs a couple of dollars more than other brands. I still love this mill, regardless!!!

I understand that OS has a pipe out specifically designed for optimal performance for the 12tz. I don't know the number/name of their pipe. I have been using Mugen's pipe (the $110 one) and it has been working great with my 12tz.

Thanks for the tip. Guess I will keep my P7 plug as an extreme backup.
