Default OS .21 RG-X vs Hyper 8 port Race

How is the OS RG-X compared to the Hyper 8 port Race?

I'm looking for reliability, performance and ease of tune.

Any feedback would be good.

Default There is a big difference,

In power according to there HP claims! The O.S puts out 1.9hp and the 8 Port 2.5hp! As far as reliability they both are good! The O.S has a lower RPM rang (32,000) which means less speed! The 8 Port RPM rang is 38,000! A new piston/sleeve cost $67 for the O.S. and a ridiculous $110 for the 8 Port on the Ofna website but, you can find them for less elsewhere!

I've read that the RG has much better low end torque than the hyper, is there any truth in that?

These engines are in no means compairable, 2 different purposes. But to answer your other question, if its reliability and easy to tune that your looking for then the O.S. is the way to go, OS products are in my opinion the best quality for your $$, although the power differerance is on paper, the O.S. is built very well, just like the rest of their engines!!

How would the 8 port race compare with the v01b? I've read tha the v01b is a real torque monster.
