I was tossing between getting a Wasp .26 or the Fantom .27, but now it's my plan to wait for the Wasp .28. It's onlya month and I can save some more money.



As of yet, all that has been released is the price - although it has been rumoured that it has been advertised in some US magazines (July edition) with 2.9HP. I've seen nothing concrete.

notice any similarities?
Sure does look like it! Although the Wasp has a cool blue bottom end.

Well it certainly has a blue tinge in that photo up the top. Where did you see these other photos? I'd like a look.

Guys,


One question regarding the Wasp .28 and Fantom .27 - Rotostart? I am very very fond of it, so will it fit?


Thanks,


Chris

roto will fit, you just have to counter sink the 4 back plate screws. Easy! I have a roto on the way by the end of this week so ill pist some pice. I have a 21BB pullstart on the fantom now so i know it will fit

I found this on their website;


Features:
• ABC piston/sleeve
• Turbo design race ported crank
• Knife-edge double bushing connecting rod
• High performance 8mm aluminum slide carburetor
• Skirted / double oil groove piston design
• 3 transfer, 1 exhaust race spec porting configuration
• 2-piece replaceable button style Turbo head
• 6 bolt / 12 fin head configuration
• Sleeve locating pin for precise port alignment
• Turbo glow plug included


Specifications:
• Exhaust: Rear
• Carburetor: 2-Needle Slide
• Crank: Standard SG
• Horsepower: 2.85
• RPM (max): 42,800
• Bore: 18.5mm
• Stroke: 16.5mm


ORI80500 Wasp .28 w/pull-start
ORI80501 Wasp .28



Sounds good to me!!! Also I'd get a Mach .26 (7 port) before an XTM 24.7 pro (9 port...I think) I have used them both and the Mach has the edge on the pro...and it's cheaper. I personally use a Wasp .26 with Nova Head in my Racer Savage and a 24.7 in my basher.

AS someone pointed out in another thread, the fantom 27 and wasp 28 specs are the same


Fantom -


FEATURES:

True ABC construction
Turbo design race ported crank
Knife-edge double bushing connecting rod
High performance 8mm aluminum slide carburetor / o-ring sealed
Skirted / double oil groove piston design for optimum performance
3 transfer / 1 exhaust race spec porting configuration
2-piece replaceable button style head type (standard glow plug)
6 bolt / 12 fin head configuration
Optional turbo button and turbo glow plug available
O-ring sealed rear plate w/ heavy-duty pull start assembly
Sleeve locating pin for precise port alignment
Mounts in same location as any standard .21 size engine
Includes standard glow plug
Includes highly detailed 26 page instruction manual

SPECIFICATIONS:

Exhaust: Rear
Carburetor: 2-Needle Slide
Crank: Standard SG
Pull Start: Yes
Horsepower: 2.81hp
RPM (max): 42,800
Bore: 18.5mm
Stroke: 16.5mm


Fantom had 2.81 HP with pull start or 2.85 w/o pull start , no doubt orion just used the higher rating. Not that HP ratings mean anything anyway, but interestng that they think an 27 and 28 have the same bore and stroke, thats impossible
