In 1936, Shigeo Ogawa set up his original machine-shop, making model steam engines. At the same time the first 1.6 cc O.S. Type-1 miniature gasoline engine was made. 200 production models sold under the name “Pixie” were exported. A short time later the OS brand came about. For all these years, OS Engines have been a recognizable name of power, reliability, cutting edge design and quality in the model engine arena. From their much loved “Max” series, to their unique Wankel rotary engine, to the powerful O.S. Speed series engines, they have something for everyone. HobbyKing is proud to be able to bring a wide selection of the latest OS Engines to you.
Drivers love the power and speed that the 30VG engine delivers, and now it comes with another huge benefit: even easier, more reliable starting! The 30VG (P) ES is equipped with a backplate that allows for using a DuraTrax® Kwik Pit® Super Start or HPI Roto Starter ignition system. The 30VG (P) ES is a performance booster for large monster trucks, or as a drop-in upgrade for RTR buggies. Fuel for this engine is recommended to use 10~30% nitro.
