Thanks RBMike and everyone else... I take it you run RB motors RBMike? How do you find them? I am looking at a WS7II and a WS7III... What are the PRRS and CONS of these motors? Which one would you buy, and Why?

Thanks for atll the help... This hobby has a huge learning curve.... Thats why I love it...

Mpowers, I do not work for RB in any way. I have found RB's to be extreemly reliable and long lasting compaired to motor made by others. They are built at the NovaRossi factory and have the same high quality standards. They are relativly easy to tune and have pretty good customer support compaired to others. I have run NovaRossi's(rex/top) (my second choice after RB), Pico's, OS, Lamberto Collarri's/Works, Offna's. All those other motors are gone now but I still have all but one of RB's I have ever bought & they all still run (very worn out but still running). The one RB that is not running was my fault (I let the rod get to worn, it broke & went thru the piston, the sleeve & the case.). It was a WS7II & I loved it. I have not owned the WS7III because I decided to get the C6 instead. Which motor would work best for you depends on the tracks you run at. For me I find the C6 works everywhere I go with maybe just a gearing change for smaller tracks. I also Love the regular S7 & the S5. No matter what you get make sure you get the correct pipe for it because it does make a big difference. For racing I like the RB2045 (smooth power & great fuel economy). For bashing I like the RB2020 (great power so/so fuel economy). The S5 & regular S7 love the 2020.

Remember the JP-2 is a top end pipe.

I have all 4 of the Jammin Pipe collection.

JP-1 all torque (2 chamber)
JP-2 Top end (2 chamber)
Jp-3 Great mid to high (3 chamber)
Jp-4 Outstanding mid and pretty good high! (3 chamber)

The JP-2 pipe works pretty good with a 5 port. It gives great top end punch. I use that pipe on my RB 728. JP-1 is on my S7. That is a missle. Jp-3 is on my C6BB7t and my JP-4 is on my 928. The JP-4 and the 928 I just can't say enough good things about that combo.

RB has the 2045 which is a outstanding pipe! The RB 2020 will work the S7 and S5 really well. That is the pipe that RB recomends for those motors.

Thank you very much for the list...

I have copied your post into a Word Doc. I will have that information for ever.

I guess I'm lazy... I've always run 30% in every motor I've had... and I've always ran just the stock shims. No problems...
haha, same here. i have never ever put in extra shims on my motors, and i run 30% in everything. from my .12 to my .28, all of them just drink up the fuel without a problem. no pinging or pre-detonation.

I too run an S5 in my buggy with great success. It's an awesome small/mid size track motor, and good for practice too. I ran a JP-1 on it for about a year, but switched to a JP-2 and felt that the motor liked it more. I had too much wheelspin on dusty tracks with the JP-1, and the power delivery of the JP-2 is uncompromised. The S5 already has great bottom end, so I would compliment it with a mid to top end pipe!
