Default OS SPEED B2102

This looks very interesting with already a claim for 10 min run times for heavy throttle finger drivers. Cannot wait to see and hear feedback from this engine. I'm sure Ty and others will debut it at the Worlds.

Yeah, fading. Now they are switching back to the prototype head, seems like it has more surface area. wonder if the Vegas edition Cooling head would help.

Never had these issues with a 2101. Why try and reinvent the wheel. You can't take away surface area and expect it to adequately cool.

Seems everyone with the old Mill (all varients) are doing well with the normal cooling heads. wonder if not only they wanted a lower CG, but to even out aerodynamics, given how the body is cut out in the cooling head area?

Exclamation

Gives a clue ..

I suspect the production heads will look more like the prototype, going by headgate
