Default Modder markings?

I just picked up a Hot Bodies D8 Buggy from a friend that has a 1.5 gallon Go engine on it. I took it apart to give it a good cleaning and the engine appears to be engraved with "RV" or "RM" and squiggly lines in front of and behind the initials...hard to tell which. Does anyone know which modder this might be?

I would assume it's a mod engine anyway since I've never seen one come out of the box unmodded engraved with initials ;-) I was wondering why it was so darn fast, and then I found the initials....

Can anyone help me identify? I'll gladly post a pic if need be.... I asked the original owner, but he is out of town and hasn't gotten back to me yet.

The marking kind of looks like this:

~~~~~RV~~~~~ or ~~~~~RM~~~~~

It's probably a rb mods the rb is about the only part you can read and the mods is usually just a scribble that's the way it is on the motors I have had him do

Yep thats mine, that's the sport motor that sells for $115.00. They really rip modded up. The internals are good quality for a sport motor.

Very impressive Rex! Tim just confirmed it was yours as well. He got back into town tonight ;-) This thing MOVES OUT for a little cheapy motor for sure. Do you usually mod for power or fuel mileage....or both?

I mod mostly for power but have been playing with things for mileage. I have gotten 13 minutes with my modded sport motor. Last weekend I ran a motor with an internal restrictor, best mileage I've ever gotten with any motor.

I'll vouch for these motors... I've got one as well.

Rex.. which pipe are you using @13 mins? I'd like to know more about those internal restrictors.
