Go over a few pages on http://www.rctech.net/forum/nitro-of...ng-engine.html you will see why this engine is a hit. Also if you have any questions the owner (Ron) itself will answer any questions that you get, from tunin,pipes etc... Customer service second2 none.

The Werks engines are sub par, Get a nova plus 4 Ninja or a Vspec or something. Better quality. Those werks peak out quick. The drivability isn't there compared to a higher end mill. Seem like a good deal till you try a good engine.

Go get a Nova or OS, You won't be dissapointed like i was with my werks.

naa, meANS SOMETHING DIFFERENT.Whoops caps.


anyway what are you worried about with the break in ? you should be able to handle just bring patience. Some italian engines like novas have alot of pinch and take lots a fuel to get them ran in. having the right plugs and shimming for nitro content is key as well.

Whose doing the break in ? Have you looked in the houstons engine service thread ? I don't suggest modding your engine but he can prolly guide you to a great engine set-up. Just saying theres more to nitro off road engines then the cheap flavor of the month. Thats my opinion.

I would guess the only reason you are having so much trouble is because you may not be pre heating it enough. Don't be afraid to get it up to 240 or so with the heat gun before you start it. After a couple of tanks of running in at preheated temps it goes pretty smooth from there. I had my Nova almost fully race tunes after 10 tanks of fuel and after tank three I only needed to heat it to about 180 to get it fired right up. Once you can turn it over by hand you don't need to heat it anymore as long as you have a good starter box. Getting it nice and hot will also save your rod and make your engine last allot longer. They are tight for a reason. Enjoy the process of getting it all warm and fuzzy so it can reward you for months of enjoyment. If you are really so dead set against the break in process look into getting your engines hand lapped. A good modded can shave very slight tolerances off your piston that in turn eliminates the break in process.

Lol, you just don't know how to give it a break do you? On a side nite TC5 Man, you have found the one person on this entire forum that seems to take a perverse pleasure for starting drama and conflict on my thread. I would take his advise like a grain of salt, literaly! He was asked to not stop postin by everyone on the B5 thread and I see that he has found another venue to try to slip in a bunch of negativity. If you would like to find out what people truely think of our engines I would invite you to flip through the last 230+ pages that have been written about the B5 on this forum. Needless to say if the motors are realy as RB Five is trying to make them out to be you will find quite a few negative comments on there, I'm happy to say you will not.

Regards,

Ron
