no, there are no new specs yet. Just wait 2-4 weeks and it will be for sale at tower. I might get that or TR T, but i don't know, i'm having a hard time deciding

I will get spec's to the .12TR(P)-R-Spec .
The new engine was ran at the Texas Biggie this weekend, Their was great resluts our team driver Ron Atomic used the R-Spec and Qualifed 2nd in the A main but got into a crash
and finished 12. He had one of the fastest engines eveyone was shocked that it was a OS engine. and Rick Vessel mad the C main.
The drivers were very happy with the performance and the speed rick said he could have made it to the B but driver error got the best of him. This engine will be ran at the Nitro TC Nationals in Sept. and you will be shocked to see who will be running OS.

The Texas biggie was run at our new permanent track, it is a ribbon layout with pavestones in the infield areas. The previous four years it was run at Texas Motor Speedway in the parking lot.


I talked with Ron about his OS motors and saw them run first hand. It was fast and looks like a very nicely made motor, it has a larger cooling head than the older TR-P.

I will be giving the new OS a try as soon as it is released in my NTC3.

The R-Spec Has more than enough Horse to compete with any engine, on smaller tracks maybe to much.

wow 1.5......hmmm now this gets interesting.....

If it retains the renowned ease of O.S. tuning and price points then it is sure to make serious waves.
