Speed and or how good a engine is or how long it lasts is generally relative to how much you spend.

Yeah, about the VG, right? I don't have it and i will never have it since the price of the blue head Vspec is so close. My next station will be a Speed but first i must do something with my other ones since school is OVER for me now and i have 2 whole years "freedom" somehow

Oh, i heard too this problem with a Vspec. I didn't have such problem and i think i push enough my engine plus that when i was COMPLETELY noob, it was running at SUPER lean at high rpms most of the time, replace a cylinder, piston, con rod, and it still going. One guy in offroad forum had the Vspec and he was racing, and he complain with the bearings, of course he order new ones but not from OS since it would be the same thing he said. Now he bought a RB, of course that's just offroad.

The Vspec problem of the bearings has been fix. The VZR is the engine you want for 8th onroad. However the Picco P9 EVO is the best bang for buck 8th onroad engine under $300. It will run with all the other high end engines out there and costs half the price.

I must check the VZR this month. If i am lucky, i will have a chance of taking my onroad to the track this month. Anyway, for more details and far more, my thread "Kyosho Evolva" will be revived after that tuesday for sure And aerodynamics too. I have a bunch of questions!!!
