If you run only short tracks, I've had rods outlast the rest of the motor. Long tracks, change often.

Do you have experience about the Novarossi new piston pin holder springs? I have onroad .21 PLUS engine and the holders look like letter C. All my other engines have the holders looking like letter G.

Are the C-shaped ones any different to remove and do I have to use them or can I use the G-shaped ones also??

thanks guys,

it's hard to make decision on picking up a new engine, i have an OS and a RB classico 9 and i'm thinking to pickup one more. i'm target on N21-7T or S21WCS09.(RB and NR parts are the most available here) after that, maybe i can try the top line engine.

The C-clip can only be used in pistons with a slot in the side of the pisten, with older pistons without a slot it is very difficult to remove them.
Otherwise you can use the G-clipin pistons with a C-clip.

The extra material on the G-clip is weight and can create a lot of G-force on hugh RPM, even that much the clip can loosen itself.

Change OS rods constantly. Good motors but rod failures are common.

WCS09 is a great motor for the price.
