This is a ringed engine based on what looks like their old .91FX which, (correct me if i'm wrong), was steel sleeved.
With the extra heat generated by Gas compared to Glow i'm pretty sure this engine would be steel.
I'm not trying to raise a debate...just asking about the liner. From what I understand, OS continues to use nickel-plated liners in their engines, even ones with rings. Yes, one would think that it would have a steel liner, especially at this price, but one would also think that their glow engines would have ABC liners and not ABN. I guess we'll find out soon.
$350 is steep, but as someone pointed out the Tower discount would likely get the price to around $300. That's still a bit steep, but if it performs better than it's competitors then I guess there's some value there.
