The .18 engine is not bad at all, nice spec and a good price
The .21VZ-M on the other hand seems to have a price tag in the UK at least, that pitches it directly in CMB, NR, MAC, Rossi etc territory. I think the short stroke engine will struggle when stacked up against that competition, but I suppose it will have typical OS reliability on it's side.

I think I am going to keep the aquacraft engine a little longer. I put a miss bud pipe on it and set the high speed needle out at 2.(watched the nitro hammer video again) It seemed to be a little rich but would haul once it got going.

I've never been able to hear a rod break. Doesn't seem to make much noise. In fact, the sudden lack of noise is a good clue that it broke.
