The 9 port onroad engine was shown on Facebook and instead of 2 small cooling/lubrication holes under the exhaust port there is now a huge wide slot so they are working on new port designs.

Looking at the B3 I think some timing changes are welcome but keep in mind the B3 is put on the market as a low end buggy engine.

Anybody know if the OS 2090 pipe with the 85mm header would be a good combo for the B3R?

Interesting, were racing or still in the break in or running hard? Did you get an oil bath break in or doing it yourself?
