Default Maximo@ Clockwork Racing Engines

I met Neil @ the canadian winter nationals last year and saw his motors in action and I was impressed with what I saw and contacted him on modding a couple of motors for me, so this is what my opinion of his work is.

First motor he did for me was a Jammin jpx.28 for my Jammin crt, and wow is all I can say. I am running a dynamite 086 pipe with a jammin 3 shoe flywheel and mugen 1.0 springs and ofna silver aluminum clutch shoes, this was the best set up for my local track. The motor makes awesome power and has tons of torque and pulls hard right to the top and sound really mean too. The run time out of this thing is good as well I am getting 8 plus minutes to a tank for me thats good considering all the power that you get with this package. The power delivery is very smooth as well. I am building a bce pjx small gear conversion crt right now and I will be getting a modded jammin jpx.21 from Neil for it.

Second motor he did for me was a RB C6 for my jammin x1cr buggy. I am running a jammin jp4 pipe, jammin 3 shoes flywheel and 2 ofna 1.1 springs and 1 ofna 1.0 spring with dynamite max life clutch shoes. The C6 has tons of bottom end and is super smooth to drive. The runtime is easily 9 plus minutes on a tank. This is one sick motor once it gets modded. I am also going to get Neil to mod a jpx.21 for my buggy as well. Just something to try because I saw a modded jpx.21 and it is sick.

Hats off to Neil at CLOCKWORK Racing Engines for the quality of work that he does and the power that he can pull out of these motors. Keep up the good work. More power and better fuel economy what can I say.
Thank you CLOCKED for life

I'm sure he is going to tell you to put an 086 on that C6

It helps to start with good motors and the Picco's and RB's are great motors. With just the right tinkering they become fantastic motors.

I tried a bunch of pipes and the 086 was one of them but the jp4 seemed to be the best match for the way the motor was modded for me

The people I know in my area are getting between 10 and 11 min run time on a stock RB C6. Do you lose that much run time in your area to only be getting 9min on a mod motor. I think most are running the RB 2045 pipe as well. Just curious as that is a huge variance in time for being "modded"

In most cases a modified motor will get better run time then a stock motor will...... Being both are run under the same conditions and driving style....... But like anything setup, venturi size, weather conditions and tune can play a huge role in an engines fuel economy.... all i can really say is that as a general rule my modified engines get better mileage then their stock counterparts under the same conditions...

i was only getting 6 minutes on a tank before it was 3 degress celius out friday night during practice i was happy with the run time that I was getting most guys would get 6 mins on a .21 if the weather warms up I am sure that I will get better run times as well it also depends on the track lay out and size
