stock guys are saying the runtimes are very close to 10 minutes...but that all depends on the tune, track, track conditions and most of all trigger finger.... If your just starting out runtimes will mean absolutely nothing.....Every crash you make will cost you more time then a extra pitstop..so till your not crashing at all having slightly more runtime wont matter...drive tamer and crash less is what makes you faster..

The engine is still too new to know the lifespan, it is the same engine internally as the RB K9..So far the most I know of is 6 gallons with zero reported issues....Nobody has had any issues with these engines yet, so its hard to say how they will last...

i would not get the dynamite engine i have seen people have either good luck or terrible luck with them. a friend had three of them one lasted 8+ gallons and the other two lasted about 4 gallons. they also are fuel hogs IMO. i see them barely getting 6 min. the B5 seems to be a great engine. i run v-spec right now but i like the jammin JPX more and you can get them for around 200, i get 9+ min a tank in a buggy with the JPX. but that engine is extremely fast and i would not get it if your just starting. also have you looked at the OFNA JL? im probably going to try one soon they seem really good and they are just 175 on nitro house. http://www.nitrohouse.com/catalog/pr...ducts_id=21551

The dynamite is a great motor and many fast guys run them, there power is very smooth. I’ve had 2 of them and got 10+ gallons on my first and have about 6 on the second one. As far as millage they do okay some guys are getting 10+ min running RE10 pipe with a novi carb. I ran the O53 pipe and a RE10 and always got right at about 9-10min. Do not touch the midrange adjustment screw! I have also heard great thing about the Werks motor so you might want to give it a try.

you can get a jp3 pipe for like 25 buck on ebay if your patient. or when you go to the track i bet someone will sell you one cheap that still is in good condition.

you are 100% correct. you could get an dynamite 053 pipe, they are the same as JP3 but cheaper. i like them more than my JP pipes they seem to make my engine get more time on a tank.

JP3 and 053 are much much different..... JP3 has way more top end in most cases then a 053...

No pipe out there is a great pipe for all motors, every motor requires a different pipe, there is no such thing as one pipe (size) fits all some pipes may do pretty good with a number of motors but not all motors.

+1 for clockworks tuned engines!!! but since thats a little outta your range then hes p5xl is the next best for your money!

I went with the Clockwork power-sized combo deal and got the JLR Modified Engine and Pipe from Neal. Great communication, and everything I hear about this engine is great. The only concern I have is it may be too fast for my weak driving skills!

The guys I know who have them have been very impressed. I will let you guys know in a week or so what I think.
