Before you shoot your mouth, you may want to read what the question was? The guy asked whether his OS CV-R (not TZ) will hang with the novas and Sirios!!!

Reading is a skill, Rody.

i have a O.S. .12 CV-R that works awsome but i'm interested in this motor hows it stack up to the Nove and Sirio?
You are in a thread about the OS TZ motors, and he asked about them. If you could have looked passed his grammar issues, you would have understood that he was asking about the TZs featured in this thread. Go figure.

I think Rody was referring to the .12 CV-R.

Yes, Rody was, but as just previously pointed out, the original question was not.

Maybe your grammar is just as bad, and hence it made it easy for you to understand which engine he was asking about...

p.s. It does not really matter which engine he was asking about because he still would have got the same answer!

p.s.s Just because i read this thread, it does not mean i have to agree with everything you say, and pedal the hype you guys are creating. Fact of the matter is, i have seen plenty of these engines run, and they are nothing special....

You know, you're absolutely right, Rody. I was wrong. The TZs will get spanked by everything else out on the market. Don't buy them, they are a waste of money.

I did not call anyone a liar nor will I. What im saying is that everyone is entitled to their opinion, and my head got chewed off for expressing mine. Creating hype does not mean your lying, it means more like people are over exaggerating. $400 for a reason, and $185 for a reason, although i must admit that the gap in performance is smaller than the price suggests.

Peace!

i have a 5 port tz and a modded jp. both are in mtx3's with identical gearing.
the tz rips off the line and out of the corners,but the jp has a smoother powerband and more topend

for the dollars,the tz is a good thing,but i'd like to try the 3 port....

Just came back from Sun Valley Racetrack. I raced against a lot of good racers, but there was one in particular I'd like to talk about.

For starters, I run a Mugen MTX-3 prospec with a Mugen X12. I only run 20% for now, but I will be bumping up to 30% for a little bit more power.

There was one racer, with a OS 12 TZ (blue head...I assume that's the 3 port). On sun valley's 150ft straightaway, the guy was neck and neck with me up till the very end of the straightaway. After the race, I talked to him about his engine, and what fuel he's using. He's using only 20% as I am...but still, that OS 12TX motor impressed me a lot. Here's a motor, only 200 bucks, against my Mugen X12 motor that costs about 100 more, and it can hang with it all day. Not too shabby.

I've come to the conclusion, that, if I were to buy another engine, it'd have to be the OS 12TZ. What an awesome motor.
