Hi, Im Braydon Kinnear, or as Im know out on the track, Boof. I am 15 years old.
I have been racing remote control trucks for a year and a half now.
I got my first ever remote control truck for my 13th Birthday. A yellow 5T Baja 2wd 1/5th scale truck.
After spending 10 months on my remote control truck, getting it race ready, I decided to join a remote control car racing club, WALSOA (Western Australia Large Scale off Road Association).
WALSOA, race at a race track at Olbury farm in Mundijong, South of Perth WA. The WALSOA track has a variety of all conditions from clay, sandy, compact and loose. I enjoy racing on this track as it’s a fast free flowing track.
2014 my fist year racing with WALSOA was a great year, I thoroughly enjoyed it, I had lots of ups and downs as well as highs and lows but I finished 2nd overall in the 2wd class and was extremely proud of myself as it was my first ever year driving/competing.
2015, a very exciting year. Not only do I race at the WALSOA track but I decided to race with WABA (Western Australia Buggy Association) this year too. WABA are another remote control car racing club, they have a track up in the Swan Valley, in Bullsbrook North of Perth WA. The WABA track is tight and technical.
As well as racing 2 different tracks this year, I decided to race in both classes of trucks, both 2wd and 4wd. I have been racing my original yellow 5T Baja 2wd 1/5th scale truck, and a new truck I got, a black and white Losi 5T 4wd 1/5th scale truck. I really enjoy racing in both classes.
But, I have to say the highlight of 2015 so far would most definitely have to be meeting Sean Thomas, from USA, who has been my coach/trainer/mentor for the last 10 months. As well as racing at Power Jam 2015, and meeting a great bunch of fellow racers who have the same enthusiasm and passion for the sport of racing as I do.
Happy Racing, Boof.
Im from the midwest .I've been racing 5th scale scale for 5 years... The losi 5ive t and hpi 5b..mostly off road some oval.
.I got my first Obr engine, a 30.5 reed case in 2013. I've been on the podium ever since!
My name is Brad Hill. I am from the small town of Soso, MS. Racing cars has been a part of my life for 28 years. By the age of 9, I was completely obsessed with RC racing. As I got older, I got involved with full scale dirt oval cars, but deep down RC has always been my passion. I have raced 1/12, 1/10 and 1/8 scale cars and I prefer dirt oval by a mile. After driving a friend’s 1/5 scale, I was hooked! Now, 4 years later, I am still a 1/5 scale man. Recently, many tracks have opened and allowed the sport to expand in my area. After seeing how rough racing was on lexan bodies I decided to incorporate my knowledge of full scale late models and build my own body out of high impact plastic. Once the other racers saw how durable it was, these bodies became a must have and Bodies by Hill was born. Last year, Dan @ OBR reached out to me and asked me to join the OBR team and I will tell you, it has been an awesome ride. I have been testing engines all off season to try and pin down the best of the best. I am looking forward to traveling to some big oval events in 2015. See you at the track!

My interest in RC Racing began quite a few years ago when I purchased a pair of 10th scale stadium trucks for me and my son. Fourteen years later, twelve different RC cars and trucks and that interest has evolved into an RC addiction that has led to making some great friendships. Two years ago, Kyle Kristy invited me to join the K.C.R.P. Team and my 5th scale addiction became even greater and along with that I was introduced to the the outstanding craftsmanship of Oneill Brothers' Racing Engines and the excellent products that Turtle Racing produces.
I've been racing my Losi Five-T for for the last three years and I've been having a blast. I'm looking forward to the 2015 Racing Season and unveiling my new Losi 5ive-T 2WD Conversion. I'm also a very proud retired Navy veteran of 26 years and my wife is on her 22nd year of active duty in the Navy and is my biggest supporter. I also have one son in the Air Force and another son in the Navy. On most race days, when I'm not on the driver's stand driving, I'm on the driver's stand capturing the racing action on my video camera or from the air with my hexacopter. My videos have been viewed over 182,000 times on YouTube - Channel: FangsCPO. See you at the track!!

My name is Bob Gottschalk and I'm from Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin. I've been racing R/C since 1987. My first real racer was the original gold pan RC10. Since then, I've raced many different forms of r/c whether it be off road, on road, carpet or dirt and I've thrown boats and planes in the mix too. Fifth scale has been a part of my racing since 2007.
R/C was one of the influences that helped me decide to go to school for Machining and mechanical design after high school. Fast forward about 23 years, I've worked as a Machinist and an Engineer at a variety of shops and I'm still playing with r/c stuff! In 2008, I decided to start my own business, Axis Engineering. With the freedom of owning my own business and the love of R/C, I decided to start designing and producing r/c products.
While I still enjoy all things R/C, I truly appreciate racing 1/5th scale the most. The sights and sounds of being at an event and meeting all the great people can't be beat. I'm currently running Losi 5ive in the 4WD truck class as well as an HPI baja in the EDM oval class. There just might be a Sprint car in my near future as well. I am looking forward to the upcoming events and am honored to be working with the OBR/TR core team. See you at the track!
Fantastic company OBR.. I can't say enough about the customer service. ..They want to to right, have fun and most of all want you to enjoy the hobby. I have 2 engines from OBR the 30.5 full mod 7.5hp and the 30.5 full mod +3 crank reed case 8.2hp. ... they are a powerful !!! They start right up and I run the he'll out them, also they get stronger every run! If you are looking for reliability, power and profromance then look no further OBR is where it's at! I'm Joey DiMeo and I approve this message!
I am a SoCal local. I have been into 1/5 scale radio control cars for 6 years. The past 4 years I have been running top speed challenges for O’Neill Brothers Racing And Turtle Racing Products. One year ago I was invited by OBR to a local 1/5 scale off road test and tune session. I was set up… and hooked at the same time. I have just completed my first season running an HPI Baja 1/5 scale 2wd truck. I have two favorite moments in the rc hobby. One of them is being the 1st American to crack the 100MPH wall with an HPI Baja. My second favorite moment came at the Team Chase 2014 Race 1. Winning my 1st off road 1/5 scale race I entered. It was in front of friends, teammates and sponsors…it was an amazing moment for me. I am looking forward to racing a 4wd Losi in 2015. If you see me in the pits or at the track, all you have to do is ask if you have a question. It would not be the same without the support of my sponsors and teammates.

My name is Ben and I recently decided to get into 5th scale RC. After reading a ton of reviews I decided on the Losi 5ive T. After that I had to figure out a power plant for the truck, which brought me into contact with Oneill Brothers Racing. I had the privilege of dealing with Dan and a couple others during my search for the right engine. Dan and I decided on a 30.5 full mod 7.5 HP built specifically for the Losi 5ive T. This was by far the best advice I have received during the building process. Dan was willing to spend quite a bit of time on the phone with me explaining the different pros and cons of parts and different motors. Now that my build is complete and break-in is almost done I wanted to share a few pics and tell you guys thank you. My experience with this company was absolutely fantastic and the customer service is second to none. I'm sure this truck is going to rip major @$$ once I can really open it up. The paint on the body I did myself with liquid mask and a lot of patience while I waited for all my parts. Thank you again for everything Dan, and the crew at Oneill Brothers.
My name’s Andrea Brisi, coming from a small town of the north of Italy close to the Lake Garda (Trentino region) I’m a 1/5 rc off road pilot and 1/8 nitro buggy pilot. About 1/5 buggy scale i run a Hpi Baja fitting several useful and high quality Turtle Racing aftermarket parts as well as the TR complete clutch system, top and rear plates, pinions , shocks mounts, reinforced cups. About the motor, i have always prefered using an Oneill'Brothers Racing Shread track motor 26cc which i find it very smooth and reliable for running on the tracks
Unfortunately in the last couple of years in my country the large scale buggy racing scene got down, so no more races and events out here, i sometime go abroad to attend some races, but unfortunately not so often because it is too costy. During my racing seasons I’ve got several good race results as well as the 2nd place at the hpi baja challenge. Me and Italian team took part also to the baja challenge european final race in Spain (Barcelona area). In was attending with great results also the 1/5 off road Italian championship (Total 6 races on different off road race tracks placed in different region of the country). I have won the most of the races, and i ended the season with 1632 points which also gave him the overall title of 1/5 Off Road Italian Champion. Thanks to Sean, Dan and David i could go also to California to attend the 2011 and 2012 West Coast large scale buggy Nationals, in the 2012 i was also on the podium, gotted the 3th place. These were some of the coolest events i attended ever.Read More

Before working at OBR I never even own a Rc car or knew how awesome they where. I have always been a mechanic and mechanist by traded and had hopes to work for Ford racing. Well that changed. In 2006 I was employed by Sean Oneill ( owner of OBR ) to be his right hand man. To help grow the company and make a name for us in the rc world. At first I was a green horn. I couldn't even drive a rc car and was banned from driving the shop cars due to my lack of experience with them. For a while I stayed in the shop modding engines and and coming up with new machining techniques for our porting. When the 1/5 scale racing started up in 2007 I was the pit man. Working on racers cars to keep them on the track , working on the shop cars for big race days, getting gear and supplies ready for big trips and of course watching everyone else having all the fun.. After about 3 years of that I decided to get own car. An hpi 5b ss. i built it out of a 1/2 of a kit and bought the rest of the parts with my own money. At first the other drivers didn't take me serious but over time they saw of determined i was to be at there level and started taking me under there wing. Guys like Rodney Ketchem and Dave Groon, Moto and Dave bowman help me get to where i am now. With there guidance and patience i am now one of the top 2wd buggy drivers in the nation and now taking on my new 4wd ( losi DBXL ) for a new challenges. My job here at OBR puts me in a good spot for a number of different reasons. i develop new and more powerful engines for the 1/5 scale world, help with designing parts to improve the many different types cars, and now manage a race team! The best thing to me are the people. i get to meet so many awesome people and have made life long friendship with most of them. i don't have any rivals... Yet but i am hoping for one!! IM not just a off road track guy. i have raced oval, drags and my favorite sand dunes racing. i got some skills. on my off time i love fishing, playing my bass guitar and hang out with my buds but racing is in my blood. My record in down below thanks
I'm Jayson, 27 years old, from Garden Grove, CA. I work at O'Neill brothers Racing and have been here for 2 years now. And have been racing for about a year.
Sean and I met about 8 years ago when OBR was out of the garage. Dan and I met a couple years ago here at the, shop. With having an interest in engines my self, I asked about a job, and it happened! Being an engine guy my self, it's hard to find other heads on the same plane. So working with these guys, is pretty easy.
Since I've been at OBR, it's been a fun experience. Getting to know more about our engines, a new racing scene, and even learn about car/truck setups. But having access to a full work shop allows anything to be done.
After being here a few months I started to notice the 1/5th scale scene is big, It's everywhere. So I eventually got a 2wd buggy. Once It arrived, Dan took the buggy home and gave it a full rebuild and set up. Thanks, Dan! Since then, it's been through some changes and quite a few, races. Along the way, I've met some new friends who have given me the guidance and support to help succeed on and off the track. Some of them are now teammates on the OBR/TR core team, and couldn't ask for better ones!

I got introduced to 5th scale racing about 4 years ago, and my first race was the Toys for Tots race at Heritage RC Park in Chula Vista, Ca. I ran a stock HPI baja 5 SC and immediately found the 5th scale community to be very helpful, especially the Limited Access/KCRP race team. I was hooked- I went out and bought a Losi 5ive T and started racing both 2 and 4WD. My first big race was 2012 West Coast Nationals at Glen Hellen raceway. I TQ in 4WD sportsman and had top 5 finishes in both 2 and 4WD classes. My other accomplishments include: 2nd overall in 4WD sportsman in the 2012 HiTec Winter Point Series at Heritage RC Park, 1st place 2WD sportsman 2013 Ashley Cup at Irvine Lake Ca, podium finishes at the AKA Spring Point Series at Heritage RC park 2013 and podiums in the HiTec Trophy Chase 2014. I finished up strong at the 2014 West Coast Nationals and I hope to carry that momentum into the final Chase Race of the season. I'll be stepping up to the expert class next season and I'm proud to be a new member of the OBR/TR Core Team. My goal is to make my mark in 5th scale racing just as my teammates have done. I've gained lots of knowledge from 5th scale racers who always seem willing to help and I am committed to show the same hospitality, so if you need assistance with your race car at the track don't hesitate to stop on by.Read More
I have been racing rc cars off and on for 34 years. I started racing in Lakeside, CA at age 8. I then started traveling to the Ranch Pit Stop. I’ve raced 1/10th, 1/8th on road, oval 1/10th, 1/5th and off-road 1/10th, 1/8th, & 1/5th. I started racing 1/5th scale in 2013 and fell in love with it. My first race with the 5th scale was at PowerJam 2013. I Top Qualified in Pro with my 4x4 Losi. That’s where I met Dave with Turtle Racing and that’s when he asked who I was sponsored by. Turtle Dave & his family have treated me like family since day 1. He told me that he had made a call to O’Neill Brothers Racing and that I need to call and talk to either Sean or Dan. When I spoke to Sean he said that Turtle Dave had put in a good word for me. We worked out a deal on a motor, and then I received a 30.5 Reed Motor along with a sponsorship. Sean and Dan have also treated me like family just as Turtle Racing has and as well as all my other sponsors. I have been racing all over the Midwest and was asked to build the track and run the race at PowerJam 2014. We had a very successful race and a great turn out. I plan to attend most of the 5th scale races in 2015. I run a 30.5 Reed Motor in my Losi 5T, and 30.5 Pro Spec in my Bodies by Hill Latemodel HPI Baja. I would like to thank my sponsors O’Neill Brother’s Racing, Turtle Racing, Rockstar Energy Drink, LargeScaleRC.com, Killer RC, PhatDad, TLR, Bodies by Hill, Woodster Lidz, AxisRC, RC Driver Magazine, HPI Baja Forum, Losi 5 Forum, Lethal Racing, EgyptSean Production & 417 Graphix Unlimited.

I have been in competitive racing for 10+ years now. I started out in 5th scales 6 years ago, when my sister help me buy a HPI Baja SS Kit. Built it all up with hand tools (ouch!!!!) and went racing. I was hooked into the 5th scale scene after that. Did some racing and just had fun. I took a short break as I started focusing on my 8th scale nitro and electric programs. Then got hired at HPI in their customer service department. Everybody quickly learned that I was a fan of the Baja’s and made me the lead on 5th scale testing and development. I also got to travel and go to the 5th scale East Coast Nationals. Placed 4th in that race, due to engine tuning problems, but still good results. After that race I was determined to continue to get better at 5th scale racing when possible. After a few short months and some sound advise from one of the HPI engineers I was able to dominate the 5th scale scene, winning race after race. This is when OBR/TR picked me up to represent their awesome brand of products. I have since walked away with 2 back to back West Coast National titles in 2wd Short Course. I am now focused on again getting the gold in 4wd. I could have not done it without the support of OBR/TR, especially Dan and Sean for all the awesome support. They are always there when I need them and will drop everything to make you fast. My future plans is to get more nats titles, especially on the east coast.Read More
Drive Hard, Race Harder, Win Everything!!!
I've been racing 5th Scales for about 4 years with my Dad. This year my 8 year old son started racing 5th Scale. It is awesome to have 3 generations racing together. We race the HPI 5t and looking forward to moving into the 4wd world. I am lucky to drive for one of the best truck owners around. My next planned races are the last Team Chase race, Dirt Nitro Challenge and the East Coast Nationals. While doing all this I also race other scales, mostly 10th scale on road/oval. My racing highlights for 2WD Expert Truck are placing 3rd in the Ashley Cup in 2013, 2nd in the Ashley Cup in 2014, 2nd in the Dirt Nitro Challenge 2014, 1st in the Hitec Trophy Chase, 1st in the AKA Spring Point Series Race in 2013 and National Champion at the HPI Baja Nationals in 2012. I am looking forward to race with the best of the best for one of the best teams, Team OBR/TR! I am proud to be a part of the racing community. We are surrounded by amazing people. I am always happy to help anyone in need! See ya at the track!Read More
I have 27 years of racing experience both in onroad and offroad. Rc racing is not only my hobby but a passion. I live in Northern, Illinois and attend all the 1/5 races in that region as well as Canada. 2014 I decided to run 1/5 scale 4x4 truck and I have just loved it. I run the OBR 30.5 Reed Valve engine which fuels my passion even more. The power is just awsome. Ive tried other engines and nothing compares. If your at a race and need any assistance be sure to stop.Read More
I had my first race in 2012 at the West Coast Large Scale Nat’s, one of the first races Larry Cross had at his new track after he had moved from Milestone. I had been around the large scale seen for a while before that, my first fifth scale was a Duratrx Firehammer, and as the HPI Baja became to be more and more popular, me, my brother, and my father acquired a few..7 to be exact. We were mainly into the bash and Glamis running styles, but as time went on and I met a few of the great people and manufactures of aftermarket parts, we decided to go into the race seen. I’ve place 2nd and 3rd with my Baja 5SC in multiple local track races, as time goes on I’ve tuned my car in but I’m still trying to find that “sweet spot” for the perfect race set up. My pops and I have talked about moving the 4x4 side of the sport but for now we are sticking to are bajas. When I’m not racing I’m going to school to be a computer and server technical administrator, going motor cycle riding, Shooting high powered guns, and helping my pops work on off-road drills, crushers, pretty much anything that has to do with moving dirt or cutting through rock. After a long day of doing whatever we usually grab a bite to eat anywhere that serves awesome food!
On the other note, none of this would be possible without my pops and my main sponsor Greer Racing Incorporated.
I come from a humble background when it comes to the 1/5th scale scene. I started in 2009 when my buddy Burt took me out to Dunetoberfest. While there, I ran into the O’Neill Brothers Racing family along with Turtle Racing Dave and Phatdad Racing Tom. Being a Harley Rider, me and father O’Neill hit it off and from then on, I’ve not only forged a professional relationship but also a personal relationship with the entire OBR family! Just bashing and helping others keep their rigs going was all I was focused on. I simply enjoyed the comradery the 1/5th scale scene had. Made the trip out to Phatdad’s place for some fun bashing on the Phat Track. Made it out to my first West Coast Nationals race in 2011 where I took 3rd in 2wd Buggy Sportsman and 2nd in 2wd Truck Sportsman. After that, I was hooked on racing. Picked up a few sponsors along the way and have been dominating every chance I have on the tracks. Living in Tehachapi, CA I’ve traveled down to San Diego, Ca and all the way up to Sacramento and San Francisco for demonstrations and racing. My most memorable accomplishments are the POW/MIA/KIA build as well as the military appreciation give-a-way build. Both supported by ORB, Turtle Racing and Phatdad Racing among others. Most recent accomplishments are winning back to back expert 2wd Buggy West Coast National titles – 2013 and 2014. Foremost I enjoy giving O’Neill Brothers Racing, and my other sponsors, a good name by helping newer drivers while out at the tracks and on various forums. I thrive for sportsmanship and challenges both on and off the track. While off the track, I’m honored to be serving as an Active Duty Air Force member and enjoy my family as well as riding my Harley Davidson. I can’t end without thanking my wife Theresa and my 3 daughters that have supported me along the way!

I had my first 5th scale race in 2011 with an HPI baja 5SC at Shreadheads Bajacross. I met a lot of cool people and had a blast racing.Killed 4 spur gears in that race. I realized what great people are in 5th scale and loved the racing. That's where it all started for me.Now I race a Losi 2wd Truck, Losi 4wd Truck and Losi 4wd buggy. My favorite track is Nitrochallenge 2012, and My favorite event is Ashley cup. Racing career highlights are: Just this year I completed my goal of getting a National Pro podium spot in in all three classes. 1st place Pro buggy in 2013, 2nd place Pro 2wd, 2013, and 3rd place Pro 4wd truck 2014. Other highlights include, 1st place Pro 2wd at Ashley Cup 2014.1st place and TQ pro 2wd truck and 2nd place pro 4wd buggy NitroChallenge 2014. Team Chase Series 2013 2nd place pro 2wd truck.

Also 2012, 1st place NitroChallenge open 4wd truck. It was my first race with the Losi 5ive-T. My Goals are to keep racing, having fun with my fellow racers and team mates, supporting 5th scale by helping out newer guys, and to always go for the podium! My biggest rival would be Chris Higa. We always battle cleanly and I have much respect for him. Personal interests outside RC are Scuba Diving, Paddle boarding and Buffalo wild wings with my Bro.

We recently built a top speed twin car for Mike Candela and this is his testimonial:
I recently received a fully built 50.8 Twin from the ground up from the crew at O.B.R. All I can say is they are the best there is. There is no substitution for the skills and product they produce. My car has exceeded every possible expectation I have ever envisioned. And by the way at 90 mph dead straight no hands!
As for hype between a 62 and the 50.8 O.B.R.Twin. . . If you doubt this you obviously don't have both? I do and that's why I now own a Twin. If your serious about a build and have the time look no further. O.B.R. Is the King of the Mountain. Every penny I spent was Worth it "10" fold. In fact by time the build was complete I guarantee the hours spent exceeded the original build estimate due to my expectations. This was of no impact to my quotation and as stated delivery was the best there is. If you want the BEST there is look no further.
OBR and KCRP swept the podium at the Nitro challenge for the second year in a row! Congrats on the wins guys!

We're proud to announce that we have big bore engines coming soon. We have a 38cc and a 40cc long rod coming soon. Everything is done at this point and we're just waiting on top ends etc to show up and we can start building them. We've kept it light and compact and it does not weigh anymore than our current 30.5cc and under engines. Uses the same ignition and covers. We had a limited supply of top ends for our initial testing so all testing was done in-car as our dyno is very hard on engines. Victory did some dyno testing while making the pipe and we're told the 38cc is producing over 10hp. We will post Victory's dyno sheet when it is sent to us.
We have a short sale that is starting now and a free piston upgrade. http://www.oneillbrothers.com/rc-car/sale-items.htmlWhile supplies last we are upgrading every 36mm (28.5cc, 29.5cc and 30.5cc) engine to a coated Zenoah piston. From our testing we saw a slight performance upgrade and a couple hundred rpm's.
Victory RC Losi Pro pipes in-stock. Available in silenced and unsilenced. http://www.oneillbrothers.com/rc-car/losi-5ive-t.html
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.
The #1 question after you buy a new 1/5 RC car or motor is how to break in and tune the engine for performance. Dan Silagy from O'Neill Brothers Racing walks you through the process of how to correctly break in and tune an engine to avoid damaging or seizing it.Read More
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 for the rest of the month at no charge.

Only exception is the 36cc as it's a 2 bolt. G320RC engines can be upgraded at an additional cost.
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.
Congrats on the wins! John won 4WD oval and Josh won 4WD offroad with their TR/OBR high torque 30.5cc reed case engines. Keep up the good work guys! Josh TQ'd and lapped the field in his final.

We have just added a custom on-road hpi baja 5B to our custom cars. http://www.oneillbrothers.com/obr-custom-ground-up-base-build-on-road-hpi-baja-5b.html
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

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.

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

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!
