most order it when they get a new kit so by the time it comes in the stock one will have wear and they will replace it and keep stock for back up, think about it people who race once a week chassis wear is pretty fast if track isnt wet.

the grp/tq has amazing power everywhere, its not a dissapointing engine for the price. You can average 8 gallons then pinch it and get about 8 more so 16 gallons is really good.

have you driven a TQ engine? im curious on your thoughts of comparing the two. i owned a GRP tuned like you and a guy at the track has let me run his TQ some and there is a difference, or atleast to me. the power is smoother and it FASTER , i dont know how or why but it is lol

GRP/TQ are some easy engines to tune, the GRP is a weird tune but it is easy to tune and they DO hold a tune forever, all i ever did was lean or richen the high speed needle 1 hour here or there, never touched the bottom.

now the O'donnell Super Sport 21 is even easier and holds a tune even better mine runs at anywhere between 225-255 just depending on the humidity. but it will hold the tune and run fine all day long. the jammin JPX is the easiest and holds a tune the longest for sure but if i was you do NOT get it, its a beast of an engine, its to much power most of the time and mine is probably pushing 9-10 gallons with no pinch. the carb isnt really any good on it and hardly any carbs fit either, we had to JB weld parts of it to stop air leak, but other than that never had any trouble but still do NOT get the Jammin JPX 21. not putting you (tc5 man) down but the carb issue isnt for someone with not much experience with engines, it took us alot of research on the carb to know how to fix it.

the carb issue on the rb ? i can tune it but i know it isnt going to keep a tune though when, the weather gets cooler at least.

i do have a nova carb from, my bf .21 how would that work i should fit that will keep a tune for sure. i think its because rb uses a composite carb insend of a alum one.
