I'm not doubting that the JL is quicker
And the cost I'm only going on what he Quoted
The last OS TZ3 I bought only cost me $166 US delivered
The beauty of having a good currency conversion at the moment.

For about $14 more you can have an engine thats as fast as enignes in $400 range.

Who replaces parts anyways, when an engine is done, I just get a new one, its cheaper in the long run.

If no one believe this I will put my older JLR up against any novarossi in a straight line to show its acell/top speed.

for the price the JLR is the best engine out there, the reason people don't think so is because it doesnt have a $400 price tag.

this engine runs like $400 costs $180, you cant beat it

And they need to realize that you are (only) challenging anybody with an older JLR, then wait till they see the new JL EVO3 engine which is Faster.

only reason thats the case is because my JLR is broken in, while the JL3 is still sitting in the box brand new

Wow 30%-50% cheaper? Odd man they try to rip you off or maybe trying to push sales of the OS which there is nothing bad about them. I run the OS myself, but I do need a bit more top end and overall more bottom end should I run at the larger tracks like the one in Maryland.

Put the OS 5 port crank in the TZ3 and you will be surprised at the power gains.

I raced a guy with the TZ 5 port and all honestly I wasn't surprised. He ran the MTX3 prospec and I had the MTX4 bone stock with the Carlsen TZ. We were fair around the track, but on the straights it was a matter of who got on throttle faster. Put it this way we were about dead even and his motor was tuned properly. RCRevos' JLR EVO 2 screamed past us as well as a Ninja .12. I'm not biased towards the motor because I just bought it, but from what I have witnessed it has proven itself and feeling a bit good I didn't spend over $300 on a motor alone.
