Man, that is a rip off. I got mine from rc-toro for $188 (OS .12 TZ(P) T5) while they had a special going. Even without the speical, the price is still less than $198. T3 is even cheaper. Tower sucks!!!

IFMAR and ROAR allow modded cranks, has it got a moded crank or is it EFRA and BRCA legal?

Whats the crank bore size?

Thanks

This engine rocks. Ran WOT method for 6 tanks, before hitting the track for another 4 tanks. Its still running a little rich, and I need to re-adjust my centax, the wheels are spinning during take off!

Well, OS has produced a gem considering the price of this engine is less than USD 200!

O.S. copper shims - 0.10mm.

Add one 0.10mm shim and go with a P7 plug on 30%. We've even run P8 plugs on extremely hot days.

Well you can't please everyone, you should be happy your not paying 300 plus for this engine.

Yes, I am. Given the performance of this engine, it is well worth $300 (a bit too much. I would say $250).

However, I am just regretting that I did not buy one more (T3) when rc-toro has the special going on.

It look pretty standard to me. I will dismantle the engine this evening and take some pics, so you could take a good look at it.
