Just curious, which .25 engine seems to be the one to beat?

The OS 25FX and the Magnum 25 XLS are the dominant engines. The OS is always good, but it's kinda pricey these days. There seems to be some inconsistency among the Magnums, but my 2nd best engine was a Magnum, until I lost it and the rest of the airplane in the lake last year (after winning!!!)

Remember that this isn't an engine hopping event, Here is rule #4 from the NTxPro website:

http://www.ntxpylonracing.org/Q25_rules.html

4. Engine must be an OS .25FX, OS .25AX, GMS .25, or Magnum .25XLS for this class. Starting in 2011 any other engine must be approved by the contest directors. All engines must be a front intake, side exhaust type using only the stock factory furnished "Out Of The Box" expansion chamber muffler and fully functional factory stock throttled type carburetor. All engines must be capable of sustained idle and be shut down by radio. * No engine or muffler modifications allowed except to remove the baffle from the muffler and to relocate the rear needle valve assembly if broken off or replace the factory remote needle valve with an after market remote needle valve assembly.



Note: The ASP 25 Mk II is exactly the same engine, made in the same Chinese factory as the Magnum 25 XLS. If you were to show up with an ASP 25, you would most likely be allowed to race, but if you planned to do that, it would be nice to have a "heads up" to the CD before hand.

Just for clarification, we will fly the C-40's in the SAME heats as the Q-25. It will not be separate events. We have found from experience that they are essentially the same in performance. The Q-25's are faster in the straights but the C-40's do better in the turns and it pretty much evens them out. It really depends on the pilot, which is what we want anyway.

Don't blame me, I voted for Sundays, like the last 10 years... We fly Combat on the 3rd Saturday, guess what I'll be doing?
