I heard He didn't use that motor during the Capitol Classic... and I believe he didn't use one during the Winter Nats either, but I could be wrong.... Funny, he hasn't posted on this thread for quite some time as well... If I'm wrong... I stand corrected...

Hmmm...

Looks like the Kyosho CRF is already available in Japan as of June 21. Pro Shop Futaba has it listed on their Web site for ¥26880 ($217.69 USD). Description reads Team ORION #CRF80600 KYOSHO X312T

I was in the same boat mate, for the dollars i decided to go the CRF combo Josh Cyrul via RCMART.com - need one FAST for meet in 2 weeks, they deliver quick and happy in the price! Other stores out of stock on the MR Ninja T10A so maybe ill try that engine next time!

Pitty Wasp dont make a G4S combo package!!

Any real tips on breaking in this Engine when i get "WASP CRF"?

Kodak,

Here is the manual with the break-in instructions.
http://www.teamorion.com/orion/faq/manuals/ori80000.pdf

For tuning, be sure to follow Bobby Watson's (aka impalabob64) instructions for setting the LSN and idle. It's (here). IMO, the key to successfully running the engine is to be sure the idle comes down after coming off throttle. If it doesn't, you'll have issues.

Also, here are the default carb settings for the updated engine, just in case it's not in the box. http://www.teamorion.com/FAQ/Wasp+Rev+CRF+Tuning

And with the G4S, make sure you bring some extra clutch shoes, just in case you experience some excessive wear.

Just FYI.. This isn't tuned and doesn't run like an OS. If you get the settings right, it's very fast. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

The CRF spring will work with a lot of engines and clutches.

What do you mean by performance of the spring? a clutch is an assembly of parts, so the spring itself can't fix everything if the rest is wrong.
The CRF spring is a high-performance spring anyhow, it's all we use.

The shoe and the weights are made out of high-grade materials, a clutch using CRF parts which is properly assembled will give high-performance, long lifespan, reliabilty and stability throughout the use.

The downside is most online shops dont carry the CRF clutch set for the G4S
The clutch spring should be good and similar to the Mugen super hard spring.
But like Nano said its a combination of clutch parts and most importantly the setup of the clutch.
