I don't know what you mean. I drove all the time Orion engines at the EC-B. Last year the v2006, this year 2 times the v2006 and then the rest of the week the v2008.
Also if I had experienced any problems with the engine why should I change if I could simply go to Adrien and ask him?

@Roelof:
Well, not so surprising. The picco is a good engine too, so why should its crank be not so good. I only wonder that it works without a problem in the Orion.

Why should it not work? The Orion is a complete Picco EVO3 engine apart from the crank, which is also made by Picco to Orion specs.

At Ampuis in my final I had about 6 and a half minute (was nearly the seven minute mark when I rolled out - fuel pistol failed) and the track was fast.

I don't post often I usually juste peek at the posts.

What I love about you Stefan is that you act like you know exactly what is going on when actually you don't have any real insiders knowledge about how things are done... So for starters you could stop posting as if what you say is the word of god.
I don't understand your urge to go troll in every thread just to post negative comments about products...

I was at the Euro B 1/10th and the CRF Orion engines ran just fine and for their first outing beat everybody and came second only to Novarossi. That is an encouraging result and proof that the technology works.

I am sure that there is more difference in the Orion engine, for starters the crankcases are not the same. They look similar to the 2007 version.

My 2 cents.
