Default Wow! RB S3

I just timed my RC8T with a RB S3, after an astonishing 11:41 it came in at 282, a little high, but i was mostly just doing WOT back and forth, and some blipping. I think i will be fine pitting at 10 minutes.

The S3 is one of the best bang for your buck motors out there. Especially if you raise the exhaust port a couple mm and open the crank port about 5 degrees sooner and you have a real screamer, though might burn more fuel.

That is just a TAD high for my likeing. My v-spec will do 11+ min at 200*. I usually like to keep them under 250* with an optimal temp of 230-235. Just me though. Whatever works for you.

make sure you time it at the track, before you just assume a 10 minute pit stop..race applications are not the same as up and down the street

I know. I tried to be as realistic as possible, visualizing the track layout in my head, doing WOT 100ft runs for the straights.
