R-Spec....E-Spec.....so many Specs!

hard to keep up with it all.

All I want to know is "is it fast" and "does it tune like a typical OS engine".

Angry R-Spec

Man, the things are already out of stock at Tower! I guess I'll have to wait till they get the next batch in to get mine.

Considering Towerhobbies/GreatPlanes is THE only place in the states to order OS engines, one would think that there would have been more of them to go around.

O'well....next batch I guess, I just hope they come in soon.

Thanks Data!!! I can wait til next Saturday when the car is ready... Did you keep it stock or did you try the Mugen steering system in the G4??? You know how fast my Top TS3 was... Well, I pinch the sleeve to much becasue of lost compression and now the piston and sleeve is no good... Over pinched... I got bad advice while doing the pinch... I had to fork out and got an RB v-12... Really... And I mean I really didn't have the money for a new motor either... You know, I'm not happy... I'll be breaking in that motor Friday afternoon and Saturday morning... When I'm through with it... It'll be faster then the TS3.. That top was still new... I tried every hobby shop for a piston and sleeve... Speed Tech, Elite, Micro RC and Ultimate hobbies for a piston and sleeve for that Top motor... I would have even brought a MR-12 piston and sleeve.. All the shops are out of them for the next couple of weeks.... Even a used MR-12 piston and sleeve would have worked... I have a sleeve pincher now... I just have to pinch my sleeve correctly for now on... Thanks again Data... I trust your work and appreciate all your help!!! You touched up the Rossi Pixy too... Man you're great!!! How can I repay you Data?? I know that steering work on that G4 is not easy...Let me know and I'll see you at the track. Sorry guys... I know this is OS motor thread...

ok, I will see about tommorow. I have everything ready but the engine. If I come tommorow it will be 1pm.

I didn't do the 24t conversion, all I did was change the pinions from 16/20 to 18/22. My spurs will still stay the same. Don't worry, before i did this I actually did this on paper first.

The engine should get shipped out to me next week, and i might get it next week.

Tally- I got it from a fellow in Cali. I'm assuming he bought the car w/new motor from someone in Europe or someone that got the motor from Europe. I didn't ask. He postsed it here on rctech for sale thread. I'm friends with Ron Atomic who is sponsored by OS. He's been running the R-spec for a couple months now. He and his motor tuner have been working on the cranks pretty intensely trying to find the perfect "grind". Ron has run at almost every big nitro race lately with his Kyosho and nobody really has anything for him on HP. He was telling me when they were at Revelation he would pull Barry a little entering the straight but Barry would make up the difference by the end. The R-spec has a ton of low end torque which would explain that...

I'll let you know more when I get it. Although, it's headed straight to Ron for modding. I'm not sure is Ron's motor guy wants to do motors for other people but if anybody wants I'll ask.

I saw Ron Atomic's car at Revelation Raceway. The motor really caught my eye so I am picking one up to try. I have a friend who is also running the 5 port engine with a 3 port modified sleeve and it is just as fast as a novarossi. From what Ron told me the R-spec is just the better carb(from the 5-port), turbo button and revised crank timing.

The TR-R carb looks exactly like TR-T's though. And the TR-T is also a tubo motor isn't it? Or does the TR-R have a different button?

Does anyone actually have the engine yet? Does it have the black crank case? or all silver?

There is so little detail on this engine even though it is already out. The OS product manager, whoever it is, needs to work harder to push their products.

Anyone who already has it or will have it soon, please take it apart and show us some pics.
