Some are saying that its an O.S. engine. Mostly has the O.S. Speed internals.

Yeah right!
After the first Ninja project failed miserable, one would go out and spend more money on a re-badged OS engine.

Why not just buy the original OS and save some money.

Oh, right, I forgot the bandwagon thingy...

Hmmm.... lt looks like the thinking of Serpent: "we want our own engine and if it isn't good we go to another manufacturer", somewhere it stops I think.....

A lot of people in the RC bussiness are saying that Serpent has to throw out the engineline and just have to sells cars and try to get an exclusive deal for teamengines.

Ofcourse OS has made a name with their offroad engines ans in Cordoba they had 2 out of 2 in the top 10 qualifying with the new onroad engine so there is potential.

OS is I think the only smart choice left, with only their own teamdrivers they are not bounded to a car manufacturer and so a high chance to get the best engines.

Never been a ninja fan but maybe the first project failed because of GRP. I don't think it's bad that Mugen has an enigine line. I agree that if it's not any faster than an os then why make it.
