?Any Exp. With Tiger-Shark Eng. From Indy R/C?

I ran this up the pole once, and no one saluted!  Lets try it again.

The price on the Tiger-Shark engines from Indy R/C is very low.  Is
this a "to good to be true", or is there value in the deal?

Thanks

Sometimes no news is BAD news! I don't know a thing about them, but maybe
no one else does either! However, if it sounds "to good to be true", then
it probably is!  ;-)

Van-
I can't relate firsthand experience to you, but Mike Billinton's
review of it appeared in one of the British rags (R/C Model World??)
over a year ago.  I've come to trust Mike nearly as much as a hands-on
session when it comes to engine evaluations, and he gave this one good
marks.  Compared to other engines from the same isle in the east, it
seems to be a step up from the ASP in both power and quality, and Mike
remarked that it was closing in on the Japanese engines.  ASP has
taken some brickbats in this ng over quality issues, but it is hard to
find fault in the power department.  An engine that tops it has be
above average.  As I recall the TS did particularly well in torquing
heavier prop loads, important if sound level is an issue where you
fly.  Doesn't seem like you can go too far wrong.  Heck, you would
probably spend 20 bucks for the spinner that comes with it.

Tiger Shark Engine is good solid engine manufactured from China.  It is a
true ABC ball bearing engine.  The price of the engine is so low due to
the fight between CERMARK and ISC.  The engine is a "byproduct" from ASP
with greater precision.

If you know of a good deal then you should go for it.  The enigine prices
are very low all over the world.  As the world shrink, prices will go up
and especially when the labor rates go up aroud the world.
