We're proud to announce that we are now CNC porting all of our engines. The TR/OBR billet piston port crankcase upgrade on all engines went over so well we've decided to do it permanently. From now on every engine will come with a TR/OBR billet crankcase as well as being CNC ported. CNC porting and hand finishing is all done in-house by the OBR staff. We do not contract out any of our porting so every engine is modified to our exact specifications. We are able to offer higher accuracy this way as well as more power. Our CNC machine has allowed us to take our porting to the next level due to us being able to do cylinder work that is not possible to do by hand. OBR will be engraved in all 36mm cylinders.
OBR would like to congratulate Josh Howell for his wins at Powerjam. Josh podium 3 times with his High Torque 30.5cc OBR reed engine.

We have extended the billet crankcase upgrade promotion.
To help kick off the new TR/OBR billet crankcase we will be upgrading every piston port engine or long block to a billet case for the rest of the month at no charge. Starts now Saturday the 8th through the end of the month. No codes or anything special you need to do while ordering. This includes engines on sale, not on sale, prostock's and full mod's. Only exception is the 36cc as it's a 2 bolt.
I know we've dropped a lot on all of you today but we have one more announcement. We're proud to announce the release of our Prostock G290RC. Available in both a long block and complete engine. We're now offering the option of upgrading to chrome covers as well as choosing a clutch for a direct bolt up in your car. As far as power and price goes the Prostock G290RC is our best bang for the buck. With the billet crankcase it comes in at just over 5hp and over 19,000 rpm's.
To help kick off the new TR/OBR billet crankcase we will be upgrading every piston port engine or long block to a billet case at no charge. No codes or anything special you need to do on your end while ordering. This includes engines on sale, not on sale, prostock's and full mod's. Excludes the G320/340, twin and 46cc engines. G320RC and G340RC full mod engines can be upgraded at an additional cost. All reed engines are billet case.
We've had quite a few questions on the power difference between our case and a stock Zenoah case. Testing was done on our prostock g290rc we've been developing. We're seeing by just swapping to the TR/OBR billet piston port case more power all the way across the board. .2 ft/lbs of torque and HP, broader powerband, +1500 rpm's and quicker crankcase temperature dissipation. You're not going to bolt this case onto a stock engine and turn it into a full mod or anything but you will see a noticeable difference in power.
Questions on oil have been popping up quite a bit lately. When you're spending good money on a tuned engine don't skimp on the oil. A $2 bottle of chainsaw oil isn't going to cut it. Sure, chainsaws run WOT for long periods of time but at a much lower rpm. Most of the high end oils out there are good but I wanted to share our experience with Klotz. For some reason it tends to leave a ton of carbon build up. In extreme cases I've seen engine failures. A tuned engine from us for the most part has a .020-.025" squish (piston to combustion chamber) clearance. It doesn't take a whole lot of build up for the carbon to tag the combustion chamber. If this is to happen the carbon can break free from the piston and go into the engine like shrapnel. It's worth every penny to buy a good two cycle oil for your engine. I've posted two pictures below of an engine ran with Klotz and a second with Castor 927. Both engines roughly had about the same amount of run time.

Words by Stan Harrington:
Wow what a weekend, from Thursday to Sunday the temp. was pleasant in the morning to mid 90's in the afternoon. Thursday evening and Friday morning we practiced and setup for the first qualifier. By that afternoon we had qualified in last place (stripped a drive belt). Saturday we had two more rounds of qualifying , after the first round we ran a 2.516 at 53.6 MPH this advanced us to the second qualifier running 2.471 at 53.2 MPH. thus having TQ for eliminations on Sunday. We started Sunday eliminations with a win running 2.517 at 53.2 MPH. This run advanced us to a bi run in which we ran a 2.474 at 53.6 MPH, now after all the preparation we are going into the finals with lane choice running Hank Cork. Knowing Hank always cuts a good light we had to really concentrate, after the smoke had settled we had run
2.472 at 54.1 MPH setting two National Records for ET and MPH.
I would like to thank Oneillbrothers Racing for a killer motor that ran flawless all weekend.
Also my tire guy (where the rubber meets the road) Mike Smith
John Foster at Quater Mortar for a awesome Top Fuel Rail
I want to thank Alan Hayes at Hayes Hobby Shop for all his help

Also i want to thank Dan and my family for the help and support ( Scott and Derick thanks for the quick help prior to the finalRead More
OBR would like to congratulate Josh Howell for his SCT National Win last weekend. Despite the mud Josh was able to pull in a win with his OBR 30.5cc full mod Losi engine.
OBR is proud to annouce that we will now be offering custom HPI baja's. The first to go up is a baja 5B setup for sand. We've been getting a lot of requests for complete cars and here they are. If you're looking for a custom car send us an email for a quote.
I knows there's a few of your waiting on our new reed engines. They just hit our website http://www.oneillbrothers.com/rc-car/reed.html To start we're offering a long block and complete engine. Options are fuel type, gas or methanol and adding nitrous oxide. Piston port engines will be available soon.Read More
Get ready, a new line of engines are coming from OBR. It's been a long and frustrating few months getting this engine dialed in but we couldn't be more happy with the results. We have a line of reeds and piston ports to follow that will run on methanol and/or nitrous oxide. Here's a short teaser video of some of the testing done by Shreadhead. We can't thank Shreadhead enough for all of his help developing this engine. Believe it or not but we've figured out a combination of porting, compression, piston mods etc that allows us to run methanol and nitrous oxide and still have a decent engine life. This new engine will be shown off this weekend at Silverlake.

We just found out today that Andrea will flying from Italy to come out and race at the HPI nationals next week. We are looking forward to meeting Andrea and watching him rip around the all new track that John Schultz has built for the event.
Today we added two new twins to our website. The first is the Shreadhead Edition 45cc. Shreadhead has done a lot of testing with the twins for us. With his twin he shot for keeping the front end on the ground for quick take off and insane top speed. Being that it is the smallest displacement we offer the torque is less aggresive than the bigger sizes. Also being smaller it is the highest reving twin that we build. Video of the 45cc twin can be found in this blog post http://www.oneillbrothers.com/blog/promovideo/ (skip to 4 minutes for twin footage)
The second new twin to go up is the 57cc. Same bottom end as the smaller twins but with Zenoah 36mm top ends to get the displacement up. Being the biggest twin we offer the 57cc has proven to have the most torque out of all the sizes.
We had the pleasure of watching the new Losi 5ive-T 1/5 scale truck run at Bajafest this last weekend. Their new truck was very impressive ot watch. The Losi guys ran them hard all weekend on the off-road and oval track and we did not see them break a single part. Get ready for a new 1/5th scale and a 4WD racing class.Read More

Dyno results of our full mod 29.5cc long rod engine with victory pro and cpi pipes.
PROSTOCK ported 4 bolt top ends and upgrade kits were added to our catalog today. The first sizes available are the 30.5cc, 29.5cc and 27.2cc. http://www.oneillbrothers.com/rc-car/porting/prostock-ported-4-bolt-top-ends-upgrade-kits.html
For more info on our new PROSTOCK line please view the following link: http://www.oneillbrothers.com/blog/cat/news/post/prostock/
We want to introduce our newest motor to you, the PROSTOCK line. The PROSTOCK line replaces the race ported engine line. The PROSTOCK engines produce more power than the race ports and are more economical and is a great engine for all levels of drivers.
The prostock engine line produces more HP than the race ports at the same price if not less. For those of you that are new to ported engines, we shot for ease of use. This engine is very easy to start and to tune the carb. Additionally, we have left the porting open on this engine. At any time, you may send the engine in to us to be upgraded to a full mod or a full mod long rod.
For more information on our newest engine line, PROSTOCK, check out the below links or e-mail us for more information:
Hope to you see everyone shredding these new engines soon!
