Default CVR vs CVRX

The CVR seems to be a fairly good engine with plenty of power that can keep up with a lot of the more expensive Italian plants, but what makes this engine so good over the CVRX? I don't see too many people using the CVRX. Granted there are now probably a lot more better engines out there then the CVR/CVRX, but from a non-racers perspective that doesn't matter. I just want to know what makes each better then the other.

Comments, information would be much appreciated.

The X means its pull-start version. Hope this helps.

Yeah. If you dont mind the extra 56 grams from the pull start you can get the CVRX. If you use a starter box then just get the CVR. Saves money and weight.

I have a 18 CV-RX and took the pullstart off and put a rotostart backplate on.
So....now I have a CV-RX without pullstart.....

Like they said^^ X just means pullstart although dad did once buy a CV-RX but on the box it said CV-R, great organisation by someone packaging motors

Pull start motors weigh more and put more parasitic drag on the motor , therefore it wont be as fast or nimble.

But yes X = Pull start for OS. Dont worry I think a few people thought to themselves...cv-rX sounds like a more advanced engine...only to find its just a pull start version.

BTW the .12 CVR isnt going to really keep up with the best now a days...but its a good solid motor thats easy to tune.
