Speaking of, "I can't believe noone has said yet"....run it STOCK. With the 100 bucks you save on the mod buy a couple sets of tires, in the grand scheme of bettering your lap times it will benifit you more.

I have bought several "modded" motors; EB, JP, RB, Mario Rossi, and others.... With the exception of JPs hard coated crank it wasn't worth it at all. Sure they may spool a little faster, have a few more hundered RPMs, but you are starting with a 300 dollar V-Spec. It spools more than fast enough and will rev high enough to break the rod out of the box. If you are looking for more power and run time, spend the bone on an OS 2050, if you are looking for a smoother powerband spend it on an OS 2060.

just my .02, but it's your hobby.

I'm still a newb to nitro... I didn't even know such modifications were possible.

Do many racers get these mods, or is it normally bashers who do this?

EB Mods Extech .21 is the ticket. Ed is one of the premier modders in the industry. He heads up the RnD over at Trinity and is working his magic on the Extechs now. The Modded Extech is hitting 2hp on the dyno. And that is real #'s. He has also added a new coating to the crank. Plus you get an added bonus. He breaks them in for you and race tunes them! Drop and go. That is worth alot too me. Think about the last time you broke in a motor. I would rather race it. He hand builds the modded Extechs to ensure perfect fit as well.

RB mods and RB products are two totally different companies. Rick will modify anything but he does love RB products motors.

I don't mean to but in but do yourself a favor check out Uriah Murnan with Murnan Modified Motors. I have owned them all Jp EB, RB, Hottinger, Ron Paris, you name it. I have slammed it off a wall. Murnan is the best. Smooth predictable torque curve and bad ass drivable horsepower,,, not a on off switch.
