I live in Arkansas and have used Rick Brake Mod motors and all i can say is i would NOT get one. His work is not as good as it was years back a lot of guys at My track have Quit using him over the last year his work has went DOWN HILL BAD. If i was gone to get a new MOD motor i would give Mark of www.PowerHouseRCPerformance.com you can talk to him on the ColdFusion-Powerhouse Thread.

If you need more INFO on Rick Brake's work PM me and i will let you know some more but i am not gone to Bad Mouth him in a Thread.

I was thinking about getting the 2045 pipe for it. My fingers is crossed. I hope this engine turns out good.

I run the AE2035 pipe on my CEO modded C6 in my truggy and get over 13 mins to a tank usually 13 and a half 13mins 45 secons but I drive smoother on the throttle then most...

the nova p5xlt race moded is still a tad less performance than a stock c6,now i dont know if that holds true for the new line of c6 but my older one is nova based anyway, good luck

13 mins. Thats very nice run time. I wish there was some more experience on here with the Rick Brake mod though. I already have the engine and about to start breaking it in soon. So the question is should I get the 2045 which is the most common pipe with the C6 or any other RB motor or the AE 2035. I would really like to get 11-12 mins run time.

get the 2045... runtime has a lot to do with type of track and throttle control... i got 13minutes on a track 1 day and the very next day at a different track got 10... no performance lost
