Just thinking outloud, wasnt talking bad about ya. Yall do great work to motors. Especially they JL... but we arent suppsed to mod the jl's lol

First customer video of the Clocked B5... only tank 7 and still conservative tune, initial feedback is that the engine is extremely smooth and linear and easy to tune... which is especially good when considering this engine makes as much power as most 28's

I'll test a stock LRP 30 vs a stock Picco 28 pretty soon I hope.... I have access to both engines in stock form....... it wasn't really on my priority list, but I wouldn't mind testing them to see how they compare....

He is on tank #7 and just taking it easy... its his money and his engine, I cannot ask him to start beating on it for my benefit..... If anything it just shows the engine can be very mellow and drivable if needed, which is impressive when you consider the power output this engine is capable of.... No worries bro, my weather will clear soon enough and I will go beat on my B5 for a good video !

I'll test my own engines soon enough and I am sure Adam will do a LRP 30 soon enough..... I will dyno both stock, then run them head to head in Truggies..modify and once again run them both in Truggies head to head.....I don't own any MT"s so I cannot really test in a MT unfortunately..I have a local customer with a XXL but I can't ask him to let me beat up his truck for my testing, as it was the Picco I did for him grenaded his tranny pretty quickly once we tuned his engine in....unfortunately I doubt the LRP has much for the Picco in a Truggy platform, but I am willing to give it a try..... I will dyno both tho and see what we find, I am curious to see what the big 30 is capable of....

No, he lives about 2500 miles away from me ! out on the East coast..... He received his B5 today and shot a video of him breaking it in on the track...I advised him to take it easy and just use 30% throttle LOL... And of course even on a light blip, and 30% throttle the engine still does its job well.....I am sure once he gets more comfortable with the engine he will turn the heat up a little ....

Actually thanks dude !!! I didn't realize that was you.....

I can't understand what guys problems are with me modding engines sometimes.... You would be amazed at how many guys tell me their stock engines are going to blow away my modified engines LOL...even when I post a dyno graph showing a 25% gain over stock, guys are still telling me their stock version is faster....i don't get it !

I am hesistant to post this video ...but the other day I went out and cracked the throttle on the B5 a little...however right away I noticed major glitches in my radio gear..I usually would have quit right then , however a buddy of mine was with me who I have been bugging for 2 years to come out and check out the RC's...So needless to say I was not going to call it off without a fight...My steering and throttle were glitching so I didn't bother tuning the engine, and as I was running the tune got a little lean on the LSN... But since my buddy came out, and I knew time was limited I decided to put on the best show I could....... So here is me hammering on my mod B5, with a glitching radio and poor tune
