Default tsais engines

this is entirely speculation on my part, but this sure looks a lot like the long lost o'donnell/associated/thundertiger engine that was scrapped. i wonder (outloud) if this is thundertiger recouping some of their R&D by producing it for tsais http://tsais.com/products/engines/91202id150.jpg[/IMG]linkie linkie

I just looked that web site and saw their ports configuration-I saw it already in different hands and I am sure someone will be pretty pissed off. It doesn't look like O'Donnell, it looks like .....
I think designer will say it by himself.

come on and say it. it's just a message board, but tsais didn't make this themselves..you think it's a dennis rip off maybe??? the head looks like an o'donnell knock off and the logo even slightly resembles the Thundertiger one. mysteriously i can't find a pic of the associated/odonnel motor now....

you mean these ports in this picture....here

just irritated,
its similar but not the same, all I can say is that I'm glad I held back the information that makes the difference between mediocre and awesome. They will never get it either

Default motor

I saw this motor at the hobby show. the most interisting thig is that it has a 12mm crank. This could be a advantage. HAYWYRE
