  2. Cool! :way_to_go:
     
  3. And the award to the highest bidder is ........

    Not saying it is a good or bad engine or anything in between but I put little faith in MAN reports these days. It was once a great magazine but since I let my subscription lapse, I haven't missed it. For the most part it just seems like nothing but one big paid advertisement.

    nevertheless it's pretty cool that OS designed a gas engine that uses a glow plug and, as a result, is very light and powerful. pretty trick if you ask me.

    fwiw, it was in a press release from Hobbico and I thought it was cool enough to pass it along to you guys.

  5. I agree and didn't mean to be too hard on OS. Just picking on MAN a bit.

    That's pretty cool. I'd like to see that in action.

    The technology is quite old. Circa 1930's. Enya should get the credit for making the technology viable to RC. OS was able to capitalize with a glow plug that does not need a special compound in the oil to keep it hot. So their glow plug should be the product of innovation. Just my 2 cents. And I agree with @Truckracer about MAN.
     
  9. Bart, yo ugot my vote for innovative thread of the year with this one. ;)

    I abandoned MAN years ago. It should be a free publication with all those ads.
