Double check the low end needle out of the box. Mine was almost totally closed not allowing fuel to enter the carb. I richeded the low end until the idle was good and leaned the high speed as normal after breaking in. Idles all day long. Gets good run-time and has decent power. I have been running .28's for a while so I am used to a little more power. It performs better than my Novarossi N21 BF for less money. Will update on longevity after more run time.

So you can put a losi turbo head on it? Does it need re-shimming? Will it give it better fuel onconomy or better power?

Good engine seems a little lacking on the fuel mileage overall a great engine for the money. I would recomend this to other people looking for a lower priced club race engine.

Good engine for the price, Nice power Decent mileage, I just wouldn't expect to get much more than 5-6 gallons though one.

I have run about 8 gallons on mine before done. Byrons 25 mediun plug Losi 8t 2.0. Decent power, decent run time. Ok bottom ok mid ok top w stock 007 losi pipe. My pit guy is on his 6th one. 4-5 gallons re-shimmed w/30%, 5-10 w/20-25%. This motor works really well in a losi 8b 2.0. he has ran these motors for the last two years with about 50-60 gallons on them. 7-9 minutes in buggy or truggy. A tad weak in truggy if you need bottom end, Killer bottom end in buggy. Turbo head gives a little more [More…]

this is a pretty good motor for 119.99 is not a bad price. my motor lasted me about 5 gallons. i did notice that this motor likes to run around 260-270. im thinking on pinching it or just buy another motor. over all this is a good motor.

Decided to pick one up for club racing and a back up engine. I was very surprised of how good this engine is and I'm going to buy one more. I use the 053 pipe with engine and after trying other pipes I think the 053 is the best one to run.

Make sure that by the time u get the engine u change the 4 backplate flat head screws and replace them with quality screws (I prefer using socket type).
Dont even think of breaking in first and then replace them,from the moment the engine reaches your door-mat Change them... -//- Forgot something about the Bearings...
The rear bearing size is 13x24x6 and NOT 13x25x6 as it is written in the manual that comes with the engine.
I mean that the manual has the code (DYN6012) but mentions the wr[More…]

Hello- I already used up 1 gallon which it is in very good condition and so is compression. I have decided to push more on Byron Fuel ProDriver 30% with 9% lub oil and increased restrictor size from 7.5 to 8mm. (To be noted: need to rich on high-speed idle 1/4 to 1/2 turn to keep 230 degree) It does work very well and gives more punch on every corner, double, triple, and rhyme section. that helped my lap times by 2 sec to 3 sec. No regrets at all!!! -//- Hello-
This budget motor of $120 deliv[More…]

Danny you are crazy u broke it in completely wrong. i let mine idel through 4 tanks then easy throttled it and never had a problem out of my motor. i got about 5 gallons on it and it still has alot of compression the bottom end is very finicky but over all the motor is good. the only problem i have with it now is that it seems it want to flame out after about my 3rd come in for refuel. but for the price its a really good motor. love it -//- this is one of the best motors i have had in a while be[More…]

Ok, heres the saga.
I got this motor, pretty one, broke it in to the EB Mods method.
Raced/Practiced with it, did ok in my buggy.
Front bearing was leaky.
Bought a new one.
Now I took it apart and looked at the con rod and the hole where the wrist pin gos through was bent.
I dont wanna bash Dynamite but the price of the engine explains the quality which is a 3/10.
I got it for practice motor.
But the quality of the motor is somewhat poor.
It did pretty good against the top motors but wo[More…]
