The reason I ask is due to the "experienced users only" mention in the ad for the engine. This leads me to think they have a smaller tuning window than a regular OS speed. I am no stranger to nitro racing, the reason I like the OS engines so much is due to their ease of tuning and broad tuning window. Here in Michigan the saying is, "If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 min." On race days we can get varying weather conditions where the OS engines really shine by holding their tune despite the changing weather. These engines have really caught my eye and I think these will be my new power plants for my buggy and truggy this year. Just curious as to the ease of tuning and tuning stability.

Thanks!
Hi TruggyDude91,
The mention "Experienced Users" is for those who have never adjusted a nitro engine before. For the one's who have some understanding and experience the engine is very easy to adjust and has a wide tuning area. Like the other OS engines because we use the same carburetor.
We just made some design changes we find important upon our experience and the competition.

Awesome, great Product by Rody, good fuel mileage and ability to hold a tune, also able to keep up with anything else at the track. You get a lot for what you pay for. Basically a tuned OS Speed motor at a working mans budget! Easy to maintain and clean as well.

Thanks for your feedback. Sounds quite good. So far I have driven in the last 10 years only OS Speeds and was always happy with performance & reliability.

Can you recommend also the VS-B01? Or is it better to go with new VS-B02?

They are both Long stroke motors, the new motor incorporates the DLC Coating and 5 ports vs 3. , They have the same bore and stroke. If you want the latest and greatest go with the VSB02

Default VSB02

Hey guys,

Just wondering if anyone has tested the VSB02?
I ran one for the first time ona truggy last weekend and found it had insane mid and top range with the L50 manifold and 2135 pipe.

Anyone got any advice on other pipes etc that work with this engine?

Have you tried an OS 2090 pipe.

Haven't got one to try, but I reckon someone I know has a spare one to test
