Default Sirio/Bliss/Boss/XRD/Team Orion engine experiences

Hi

Does any of you have experience with the Sirio based engines listed in the title? It looks like Tironi and Pirani have good speed at the ENS in 1/8 with the XRD FT Line, but are they going through 10 engines on a weekend or?

What are pros and cons?

Thanks

Fuel consumption!!!! The crank volume is bigger than ever. But the engine is fast

Oh well, first engine dead... Looks like they forgot to grind down the bottom of the piston in one of my 2 engines. Bought 2 of the exact same engine and you can see the difference.

It died while driving but the shop i bought them at is saying i did not move the piston up when removing backplate (Rookie mistake, and never done that with the other +20 engines i have had).

Schepis Model will take a look at it and get back to me... Atleast a much better answer than the complete denial by the webshop owner.

The 2nd engine are going pretty well and running just as fast as my ISON, even though its not 100% race tune yet, and does not run clean.

Internals of the engine is tuned pretty much everywhere and it is using OS glow plugs.

To follow up what has happened, then Schepis Model decided to ship me a new motor yesterday (Delayed by easter and holidays etc.) Huge credit to them for doing this, and they earn some good feedback here after this
