I ran the TG in my gas truck all last summer and I loved it. It is very smooth and easy to drive. It's not a screamer when it comes to power but it is very smooth. There were also a few other drivers that bought one and it seemed like all of a sudden they turned their game around and were turning some really great laps.

Unfortunately I was barely able to get any better run time out of it than my previous TR. Making 10 minute pit stops I was coming in on fumes. I do run mostly on rather large tracks so that might be part of it. The other reason I think I don't get any better run time is that since the motor is a little lower powered, I am harder on the throttle all the time.

14 minutes ?

No , maybe 10 tops..

Otherwise love this motor, as it has been reliable and easy to tune...


The power is smoother than any , and it is fast down the straight...

I already have close to three gallon`s on my Tg and it is still running strong ...

How do you compare it to the .12 CVR engine ?

Cv R is faster on the straight
not as smooth on the infield section`s of the track..

The Tg although not as powerful as a Cv R, yet deliever`s lap times that are more consistent and faster than a Cv-R can...

The best way to describe the TG is like this:

Its feels real smooth like a Cv , but has the power of a Cv-R...

This is to race on a small track. I think I'll go with the .12TG. I'm also looking at a Novarossi .12 "Basic" engine but I think it will be too powerful for a tight track.

I find my Cv-r is very smooth with the stock GT2 pipe, and my lap times were Extremely consistant. It all depends on motor set-up, oh, and i consistantly come in at the 10 min mark for fuel, and have fuel still in there at that time.

I use a Novarossi Basic engine and get over 10 min a tank (12 to 13) . I put it away to a big meet comes up and pull it than. 1 HP, Side Exhaust, rotary carb. On club meets i use a latter Nova 1.2 Hp and it gets clost to 10 min but havent really tried it to see what it gets.

Im a Jerzey boy, and i was used to dry cold..LOL.. Ohh, back to motors, the cvr Im running, ive had over 4 yrs..It has well over 8 gallons threw it, I had it pinched about 8 months ago by os rocket, and its just like new.. Its never let me down, so i would never change. I have a Brand new one, never even opened sitting in my drawer cause they are that good..

Sylvain, I have soom local guys running the TG and they are getting just over 12 minutes after my porting with a huge increase in peak power but a very smooth bottom end transition. We are running them in 1/10 scale 2wd stadium trcks so you know as well as I do that smooth roll on is very important. I am running a Novarossi myself and it is a sweetheart of a motor. It was a light switch before but after adding 3 ports and changing the entrance velocity it smoothed right out and is a pleasure to drive. I also have a CRT.5 with a Picco 7 port that is getting about 12 minutes to the tank also and it sounds and looks like a .21 running out there.

My driver Todd Lewis runs the TG in his stadium trucks. AB Modified of course And he loves the engine for its smooth power "which is a MUST in stadium truck!" run time and power after the modifications. He felt it was actually a little under powered before the modifications for his likeing. And hes reporting better fuel milage as well to go along with the added power. He runs my stage 1 race mod on this particular engine.

Couple of questions about the .12TG, bought one in a slightly used GT2 and can't get it to run. Is there something that I should do if it has been sitting for awhile? I tried and tried today until the pull cord came all the way out and now won't retract.

Pretty frustrated but I guess that is the price for going second hand on some of this stuff. Do you guys run with the pull start or opt for a mod to use bump start or spin start? I am pretty new to nitro my other truck is a Savage 4.6 with the roto start which is much easier to manuver with only 1 hand required for starting......

a starter box can be a little pricey after you bought a new truck but once you use one, you will love it. just through the truck on and push and the engine fires right up (when tuned right)
