OS engines are very popular where I race. Everyone that I know who has used the JP3 reported that the engine had a lot more snap off the bottom end. If you've got the traction to do it, also try lightening your clutch shoes and/or gearing down. You should not be searching for any extra power though, the V-spec is really strong.

It also looks like Jamaica! I wouldn't mind having that close to my house though, looks like fun. Would sure beat the 1.5 hour drive to the Nitro Pit, eh Slumlord?

Hi guys,

Thanks for the comments. This track is located in Miri, a small city in East Malaysia on the island of Borneo - land of the head hunters (but I haven't met any eventhough I was born here )

The rope is used marine mooring rope to demarcate the sections of the track. The bridge is a neat idea by my lhs owner who owns the track & let everyone play there for free. It's about 15 minutes drive from my place.

Regards,
Joe Ling

Yeah thanks. When I was trying to highlight something special about my place, this headhunting thing just popped up. I think this used to happen in the old times where the local indigenous people used to hunt down their enemies or something like that...

I will try to stay out of the jungle

Anyway, back to the topic, I saw my friend running a GO28 with a JP3 pipe in a X2. Seems to be pretty snappy. I will ask him how he liked it the next bashing session.
