Dynamite Platinum .21XPE "Euro Edition" 5-Port Off Road Racing Engine (Turbo Plug)
I was able to see one of these run this weekend at a large outdoor track that was a little dusty. It was ran in a Losi 2.0B with a Dynamite pipe running 30% Dynamite fuel with temps in the 225 - 230 range with outside temps near high 80 low 90's all day. This thing had CRAZY top end the only mill that was pulling it down the front straight (130feet) was a hot mods Toro Nero that I seen. Looked very smooth down low not a stump puller but was able to clear the little double double that was in some of the turns.

I can't say how the life of the engine would be or the internals on it since I don't own one but I will say that I'm very impressed with this mill and considering purchasing 2 for myself after I do a little more research on it.

I had one of the original platinum series in my rc8. It was on gallon number 6 when I finally went with a werks B7 someone gave me a good deal on. When I got back into nitro for a bit I was handed one of these to break in and test for a friend.

It would seem SH engines is certainly moving up. Great engine just like my old platinum. Not as "torquey" but still plenty fast. I only wish that SH would try to market directly instead of going through dynamite, megatech, etc.

Amazing engine ! Nothing at all to compare with the old .21XP and .21 XP V2 from Dynamite. This engine is really a "race" engine. Combined with the Dynamite " high Speed " pipe, that engine rev so high like no top end RPM. Really powerfull on buggy. Have no tried on truggy yet but I'm sure it has engough power for a truggy. Run it with P4 O.S. plug or P3 when is colder.

The only thing I have to say "bad" of this engine, it's my have blow only afther 1 gallon. I can't put the fault on this engine, I'm not sure yet what happen on my last A-Main, but I think some dirt came in the combustion chamber and exploded my piston. So, that's why I can't be sure is a engine fault or from a bad luck.

Will buy another for sure to test it again! After the second, engine, I will re-write again to say if it the same thing or not.

Dynamite Platinum .21XPE "Euro Edition" 5-Port Off Road Racing Engine (Turbo Plug)
I recently got back into racing after a 5 year break. I used to use a RB. I heard a bunch of losi team drivers were using this engine and though.."No way, a dynamite?" Considering I used to use a RB...Well this now has changed with RB because they are no longer made in France and there a beeotch to tune. So I ordered this motor and let me tell you the amount of power per the price is unreal. The last RB I used was like 400+ but it was back in the day when RB was still made in France and this is 200 cheaper and makes just as much power.

So you want to hear about race results...hear you go..9 years without racing a 1/8 scale

Using the new upgraded JQ car with nothing breaking only and finished one qualifyer.

Still got in the Amain

Started the race two laps down

Came back to finish 1st place!!! Told JQ about it on facebook, he thought it was amazing

Motor really comes to life after one gallon.

If you looking for a cheap fast motor, this is the one!

And I will say this again, yeah its a dynamite..who would of ever thought they would of made a world class .21....well Kyosho did try to enter the 2wd race anythings possible.
