I have this motor and can't say enough about how good it is!!! I run this motor in my Baja dragster at 132' in 2.5 seconds at 50 plus mph!!! This motor is a beast plain and simple. Add the big bore pipe and 990 carb. and lookout!!! I sold my OBR motor to keep this one!!!

I don't own one but I've seen two of them run and one was a dog and run hot all the time
They were in a Losi truck both of them and I was not impressed by them
But in a lighter buggy they may run really well
But my stock 26 that came in mine was just as fast I thought
He makes boat motors and it stands to reason that they would be fast on top end

gizmo 30.5cc head kits are nice for the price of a full mod kit. i have one for oval racing and it is built for tons of torque on the bottom end. id recommend them.

You can see the front tires coming up and it is just smoking the rears. I am the official tire tester for BRP and this was a brand new set of tires they sent me for testing.
