Default Arrow Racing GTR .21 Engine Thread

I just received one yesterday. I will be taking some pics later this morning to post. I will be breaking it in on Thursday. First impression: looks super quality from the outside (have yet to tear it down), feels super light and cuts are clean.

Yee! Ha! Yet another offering from the Taiwanese
r/c engine tsunami.
I found some info about it on their website.
The 9mm, three needle, carb looks interesting.
Here is a link to their website,

I still haven't fully broke in this motor yet. Weather is crappy here and when I had an opportunity I was racing with my other motors. I hope to have some data on this soon for you guys.

Taiwanese OS v-spec. Too bad Taiwan couldn't do their own R&D for a change, but it should still be a good engine.

I thought the Argus was the taiwanese V-spec copy But that one turned out to be 5 ports. Im confused with all these brands and "designs" popping up every other day. They've all got be related back to the same factory, just different names

Na, Argus is basically Alpha. I agree though all these "new" brands popping up everywhere gets confusing.

actually, arrow is a new company. They are not affiliated with any of the other Taiwanese manufacturers (Go, Force, Alpha/Argus).

Will be interested to see how this engine fares.
