Default Evolution 60 or Jet 53

Hi guys,

Is there reallyy a power difference between these two? The Evo is pretty affordable but i dont mind dishing the extra $$ if i get a significantly better engine (Jett). Please help!

After you run a few Jett engines you will laugh at questions like this. Jett all the way when you can afford one!

The Jett 56 will spin a 9x8 apc at around 18,500 and will last for a long time if taken care of.
The EVO will spin a 9x8 at 17,000 and will not last long at all and many have sheard the crank pins off.

The Jett is indeed a significantly better engine.

I was sniffing around the Jett website today and I found a high performance 61 in a .46 size case, and it is lighter than an OS AX46. WOW. Has anyone run one of these things? I am ready to buy a new engine, and then find a plane to put it in. (I do things a little bit backwards).

Sounds like a new project on the way.

The Jett 56 replaced the SJ-60LX same animal, new look for 2011 .... I just need to get off my butt to update the website [&:]

Many Jett engines in service, SJ-46, SJ-50 (still my favorite), the SJ-56 good investments.

The other engines like the Evo 60, OS 55, OS 46 are great engines too. With the jett-stream muffler and the right prop, you can get rather spectacular performance. My favorite budget combination is still the TT46 and Jett Stream.

Jett also has one other great engine besides the dedicated "race engine" and that is the Jett 35.

I have the rear exhaust one and it will spin a 8x7 at 21,500.

Jett also makes a 40 in a 25 size case that will spin a 10x6 APC easily at 15,700. This is stronger than any stock 40-55 size engine.

I need to buy one my self.

JETT if you have the dollars to spend up front.

I even had a Jett .46 on my girlfriends trainer!
