Total cost $350 AU from hobby guy RC. The HP doesn't bother me cos it depends on what fuel they used, weather, tune,etc. etc. Never believe the HP rating. RB engines dont disclose their HP ratings cos they really tell you jack $hit. This motor makes more revs and has all the good stuff on it like turbo cut crank, con rod and head, the wasp has none of this. I took a head shim off the wasp last nightto give it more compression and it screams now, but prolly not for long

Husky,


I am really keen to see how this goes. I am super happy with my Picco, but this thing really looks the goods.


Regards,


Chris

Will have to come and check it out once you've got it hammering. Keenly watching to see how it performs.

Dayum!! They sure are keeping you waiting for this new motor... will you be at the track on Sunday if your savvys still in bits?


Also did you order the pins? I just looked and sure enough they are on that post you made... dunno how I missed them I guess I'll just put it down to a brain fart.


So do I need to order them or have you got it covered?
