    It states it was taken on an X-Dyno and if that is the case then the numbers should be accurate for a comparison between engines. Take manufacturer's claims with a grain of sand. There is no real standard in how to measure RC engine power so manufacturer claims may be exaggerated.

    Not to mention that no two motors will dyno the same even if the motor is identical. You may dyno one 3.3 and only get .97HP and dyno another and get 1.2HP. Reason being is that we don't live in a perfect world that's why there is a thing called manufacturing tolerances.

    Agreed. And there are some factory freaks.
