    The old one was build by Hobbico.. with there demise that ended that website. The new importer wall have to rebuild or build a new one.

    The old site was nice because you could reference all the parts. Hobbico had a VERY complete collection of OS engines on the wall in the Hobby Services building. Not sure what happen to those.

    I am not sure who the new importer is BUT.. I suspect it might be Horizon. yet..........they (horizon) have stated in the past (from an inside source) that they were going put ZERO effort in the nitro market in the future. (what does Future mean in time line.. I dont know)

    But then again.. who the heck knows.. LOL

    O/S will not be the only manufacturer of stock 3.5cc outboards before the end of this year anyway.

    Boaters,

    If you need any O.S. engines or parts type in:
    O.S. engines rc.com

    That will give you plenty of options.

    Thanks For Reading,

    Thanks Tom. I have the parts and engines priced below most national retailers in the USA as I am now importing just the marine engines and parts. I had many requests by my outboard customers for help, even though its not a Novarossi, as they needed a source for engines and parts at a more reasonable price. I also carry two 20 stock tunnels in stock from Vans Racing so it just made sense to add the lineup. Thanks again for your business.

    Doing some research on the subject I can only find Horizon as the importer of OS engines (all models).. its curious tho I can not find any updates scene 2016 but it does show Horison as the importer.. and that happen after 2016..

    Somewhere I heard a rumor that Andy Brown was importing and modifying OS engines. Does anyone know any more?
