The Kyosho is a Sanye rebrand. Basic engine. The OS is a loosely fitted over-inflated price engine that costs more to rebuild than is worth. Buy a Novarossi 28-8 if you can - it’ll outlast either of the engines you listed 2:1 and run far better. The 30VG is a basic sport engine. Not a high power engine.

I tried the Novarossi 28-7. Got it new from the factory in Italy and had them break it in.. It was almost impossible to start. But when it did start, it was WAY TOO POWERFUL! I used it in my Ofna Titan and it made the truck so fast I was scared to drive it. It also destroyed the rear differential and blew out the center drive shafts multiple times. I sold that engine on Ebay.

I'm just wondering how the OS .30VG will perform in the new Kyosho USA-1 Nitro.
