Well, this IS the "Age of Aquarius", after all. <G>

I see that the Japanese Indigo Children have finally assumed power at OS Engines. <G>

I like it. I wish it was ABL as I've had very good luck with the two AX .75's I have.

It looks like a scaled down 1.20AX

Nice to see a angled needle assy.on the carb and a head with more than four bolts. Should be a winner.

Good Find.



I'vebeen speculating whether OS would ever release an engine midway between the .75 and 1.20AX. I even asked Bax a couple of years ago but he didn't know at the time.




The .95AX looks to be the same weight with very similar bore & stroke to my Webra .91 P-5 which is a brute.

I have a few models where a regular .91 is a tad weak but the 1.20 is overkill. I've been using the Webra .91 for these but the .95AX might fill that void for me.



I wonder whats next to get the AX treatment?



AnAX somewhere between 1.60 and 1.80 would be good, please OS.

This engine doesn't do me any good, except give me hope that something in a 1.40 to 1.50 four stroke might be in the works. They're still lacking in the 4-stroke performance world.

I hope everyone the 95AX makes a lot of people happy. I like the AX engines. And I like the ring on my 120AX.

Hi Greg,

If you get one i'd love to here how well it does with a 14x8 and 15x8 props.

For comparison, my Webra .91 does 10,000 and 9,300 with just 5% nitro. It's a beautifully made engine but expensive. I'm hoping the .95AX performs as well as the webra.

They have. All you have to do is look at Tower. $279. Thats the same price I just paid for my 1.60FX. Minus $60 for my club membership when I when I purchased $21 more with it.

GP is crazy to think people will pay that much for a .95.[X(] There pricing has steered me way clear of any engine they make currently. In the mean time I have found engines such as the Tower .75 that will perform right with the .75AX for 1/2 the price, and you do not have to worry about the cylinder peeling in the mean time and if any parts are ever needed they will not break the bank.

The webra P5 is also about that much. Prices are significantly higher for comparable fourstroke engines and people have no problem buying those? The 95AX should be a good engine like the rest of that line.

You cannot compare the price of a simple 2 stroke engine to a complicated fourstroke. I would and have paid more than this selling price for a YS 1.10, but to pay that much for an engine when others close in Displacement are half the price is stupid.

OS pricing has nothing to do with logic or real world costs. The old axiom of, "charge what the market will bear" is at play here. I only wish I had a product to sell that had such a great reputation and following that would allow me to charge ridiculous prices for it - and get it.

It is disgusting, yet we are fortunate in that we can often buy two or three econo priced two-stroke engines for the price of one popular OS two-stroke engine. Furthermore, folks that could only afford an OS two-stroke engine before, can now venture into buying newer, lighter four-stroke engines, such as the new Thunder Tiger .75 four-stroke engine, etc.

I don't totally see the point of that engine.
I have the .91FX, in a .91 acrobact... it's not the most powerful motor out there but least it's small and light. So a new version hardly seems to solve the power hunger.
I was thinking about the 1.20AX (and heard a couple of negatives) so'I've decided to replace it FX with a 1.20FZ I had laying around. The 91fx going into a decent .50/60 sized acrobat where I think it'll be more suited.
Point is, OS are coming up with a couple of new (high techi') engines in the .90-1.20 range. Why the h#ll they didn't just keep the old 1.08 and been done with it?
I had that in a 1.20 CG extra and it was FANTASTIC! A real mans engine, globs of low end grunt... Felt like a 4 stroke!
Which is about a much as anyone could hope for.

I agree, the 1.08 is a fantastic engine.

Because the 'sheeple' need something shiny and new to flock to.

Guess so... the .91FX is basically a drilled out .60... which is neat... if your .60 lacked some and you needed a little extra pep.
But that ol' 1.08. It had serious balls in the old school manner. So much torque... as stated... it felt like a 4 stroke.
The 91FX hasn't any... whimpy IMO. The new 1.20 basically delivering what one expected from the .91. High tech, flashy a great cosmetic design... but no BEEF. No brute force.
You need engine that delivery the milk at low rpms and at low throttle setting, thats why we love 4 strokes... and covet the simplicity and delivery of the 1.08.
Old fashioned, simple low tech long stroke. It's very hard to beat.

So for example the magnum 108 is the same?
