It seems everyone loves the V-Spec. Hahaha.

Actually picked up an EB Mods V-Spec about two weeks ago. Was going to put this engine in my Matrix, but I think it will go in the TR.

Didn't get the 2050 or 2060 pipe at the time though, I didn't want to shell out that much yet. But it was recommended that a JP-3 could be a good substitute. Not as much power as what the OS pipes could put out, but not bad.

No, Robert you have a Ninja JK, i know what motor you got. SIMON'S old Ninja Motor.

OK seriously, JP, yes I know its the Nova.

I see that CEN is going to the SH .28 engines now in the RTR kits. How much better are these than the cen version?

Also, anyone running a .21 VG in there Matrix TR?

Werks TeamLine .28 B7 and Werks 2013 Pipe

Backup motor is an LRP Z.28 Spec3 with JP-2 Pipe

The Werks motor revs out at the top end like a .21. Havent tried the LRP yet.

LRP .28 spec 3 with a Jammin JP3.

I have not had much run time thus far, but it seems to have a lot of power in all ranges. I am not for sure on fuel milage. I might try the different air intake restrictors?

For big races I'm running a TNT Modded AXE Cobra, fantastic engine, as much power and torque as anything out there, plus 12+min on a tank of fuel, I've been running it with a Dynamite 007HT pipe, seems to work good,

for club races I've got an old rebuilt STS 28, works really good, but I can barely make a 6min qualifer with it, last race it ran out of fuel coming down the stragiht to finish my time, and the 2nd qual it ran out a few corners after I finished my time,

Cool video of round 1 of the RC Pro Florida Nitro Off-road Series. The CEN Matrix TR Arena had the fastest lap (50.9) and qualified 1st & 2nd Kyle & Tony). There was 4 TR Arenas in the A-main.

pretty much any bell should work as long as its M1 pitch... so just about any buggy bell ,, ... Not sure about the losi bells. they look a little funny but otherwise your options are wide open.
