I noticed the difference immediately on the low end torque. I knew going in that the S7 and JP3 were both aimed at top end so I think the combination might be to top-heavy for most tracks.

I was running at The Badlands in Myrtle Beach, SC when I made the switch. It's a very big and fast track that races corner to corner. Not as long in track length or tight as The Farm 2 in Charlotte but much faster with a lot of hairpins leading into long runs or big jumps, so low end is really key. My laptimes improved after the change to the 2045 and it felt easier to drive as it was easier to keep in the powerband. The Badlands has two long straights, one on each side, probably about 100-120' each. I was running an 8ight with a 12t clutchbell and I never topped the engine out on the straights.

if you guys have access to a Sirio 2013 pipe I would suggest using that.... take a look at anyone's car that races for RB.... they dont use the RB pipes bad economy and less power than the 2013

Are you kidding me with this all the Drivers at the Worlds ran C6 2045 combo. But then again maybe Rody was secretly wearing Sirio underwear

The track i run at is a indoor track that is very tight so i need a lot of low end torque to get out of those corners quicker and hit the doubles better.

When I ran RB engines the only plugs I used were Odonnell 99 and 77. The 99 was good 99% of the time and the 77 is good when you want a little hotter plug. They always lasted a really long time and the performance was great too.
