Geesh those are the 2 things I never hear or experience with an RB and are generally the upside to a C6 is longevity and power. Sounds more like someone who sucked at caring for his engine.

Lets comment on OS and there cracked blocks from the manufacture. Umm who would not replace them even knowing it was a defect. Not to mention the notorious leaky bearings. Now if you get a good V-spec its going to be a monster to contend with. But there is always the "IF" factor. Never heard any problems like that about an RB.

I think he was comparing the OS speed if you see them on the net for 275.00 I'll buy 10. Although I already know a speed is $500 from A-main

I was at the preworlds and speeds was not even 25% of what was being ran. Is there any bigger race than that oh The Worlds I'll be there too. I know he said non-sponsored.

Yeah I will take 10 OS Speeds also for $275!

I have seen some RB's around here last 14 gallons and still have plenty of power... I get around 8 minutes of run time also, but I admit I have it a tad bit fat, but its fairly new at 2 gallons on both the C6 and S3... Barely broken in yet...
