    RE: VX 18 Specs

    are sure 1.08hp is right? it sounds like very little for a .18!

    ADVERTISED horsepower. In reality, the VX18 probably makes less than 1/2hp, I'm guessing.

    Shoot, on the HSP website, it claims 2.1 or 2.6 or something retarded like that. Believe what you want, right?

    RE: VX 18 Specs

    horsepower is a number thats used to sell products. Its a decent engine for an RTR vehicle, but leaves plenty of room (power-wise) for the owner to upgrade to a more potent engine if one chooses to do so.
    There are only 10 types of people in this world: those that understand binary, and those that don\'\'t.

    RE: VX 18 Specs

    1.08 is probably a good honest value. It's only a 3-port and only revs to 32000 so it makes sense - many of the 1.5hp+ engines have more ports and go to 40k or even 50k rpm

    I think this is what you are looking for.

    Pdf takes a little bit to load but it is on the first page.
