Ive been running a x12 6.5 lrp and its like an on off switch way to much power in the lower rpm range it is very fast and keeps up with the 5.0t motors or better down the back stretch. But it is hard to drive so consistant lap times are rare to get. To give you an idea it was spining all 4 tires out of the corner with the punch/feel all the way down, mild timing, -15 expo in the radio and slowly rolling onto the throttle. X12s are too agressive for me and you really can't take the punch out. So I now have an x20 5.0t in the car and may pickup a Reedy 5.0 for technical tracks. If you can manage the punch of the 4.5 octa with gearing and timing it is a beast of a motor and can take alot more abuse than other motor designs.
