Default ASP Engines?

ASP engines any good? I've never had experience w/ them, some feedback anybody?
I'm looking at a 75 size, possibly to buy.

Default RE: ASP Engines?



I have the 91 and 108, both run OK, they are both the wettest engines I've owned. IT must be caused by the intake timing, they both spit out the carb, even though the run OK. If I had a choice between the OS and a ASP I'd go with the OS if they where the same money, but they won't be.



For sport flying they are a good cheap engine. Don't mount the engine where the muffler can get knocked I broke the mufflers off both my engines in nose overs.

Hi Smoknrv4,

We use to run ASP.40 on scat cats for our pylon demo derby. They didnt idle very well but full throttle was ok. We found that they ran best by installing an OS carb onto them. Unfortuntely, the OS carbs cost as much as the whole ASP engine. You might want to consider a Supertigre engine instead. Supertigres are now made in China but I think the quality control is allot better than the asp engines.

Just My $.02
