Two ASP S52A's, one barely ran, one NIB


ASP S52A Two Stroke Glow – barely broke-in

It ran through less than 16 oz of 10% nitro, 20% lube fuel (10% castor, 10% synthetic). It ran like a striped @$$ ape, WAY better than I expected…simply too much power for my application.

The muffler has not been used (I used a Mac’s one piece pipe for the runs), but it has had the tailpipe bored out to allow better flow and the muffler’s baffle has been tossed as well…it will be a bit louder, but flow well.

The engine will come in box with instructions as I received it…other than it has been ran…and it will have a NEW Fox R/C glowplug.

New In Box ASP S52A Two Stroke Glow – Just like it left the factory

Barely even been out of the box except for pictures, NEVER seen ANY fuel, brand new and perfect!

The S52A has a sealed front bearing, true ABC construction (not nickel), 2 needle carb and brass glowplug threads...nice sport engine.

$55 shipped for the broke-in one, $75 shipped for the NIB one or $115 shipped for both...check or money order only...Sorry, NO PayPal!

FREE shipping applies to the lower 48 only, more for other destinations.

PM me if interested and we’ll go from there.

Thanks for the look!

Some additional info off of the Just Engines website...

ASP S52A
Introducing the latest ASP 'Series 3' - the .52 's' long(er) stroke engine.
Bore 22.4mm
Stroke 21.5mm
1.75HP @ 17,000

Thanks to the totally new bore and stroke, re-designed (and timed) liner and carb, performance is seriously impressive for less than $100.

To prove our point (and to get independent results) we asked local engine expert Mike Thompson (BMFA Area Examiner) to test the .52 'back to back' against the most popular .53 (in 2002) - the Irvine .53. His brief was simple; take these 2 new engines, run them in and test them using the same fuel, plug and APC prop(s) on the same day!! Can't get fairer than that!!

In the tests (using standard 17% oil, 5% nitro fuel), O.S. no8 plug and APC props, after 15minutes of 'running in' (on both engines) the following performance was recorded:

Prop. ASP .52's' ASP Quiet Silencer ASP .52's' ASP 'Super Quiet' silencer Irvine .53 Irvine 'Super Quiet' silencer
11x6 12,200 12,300 12,250
12x6 10,500 10,800 10,700
13x6 9,550 9,800 9,700


and that's a lot of power for an engine in the same size casing as an O.S. 46FX !!

And for a solid review...
