I'm running 2 sets (4 disks total) of Craddok Fiberglass disks and the breaking is great....WAY better than it was with the steel disks or with 1 set of fiber ones.

I find that the Hong Nor steering get loose with the normal one. SO i thought by putting the PBS it will take it away.
i tried the PBS, and i did give more steering, but was harder to tune in, so i went back to the c-hub....

I was saying the PBS system might give more steering but it's not needed because the car turns great as is. If it's not steering for you then your setup is off.

I am buying a new motor and am debating on whether I should buy a V-spec or a P5X. Any opinions would be appreciated.

Thanks,

i had a v-spec and i am running a P5X at this time...to tell you the truth i prefer the P5X over the v-spec....just as much speed, starts as easy, holds a nice tune, and the best part last longer...however if your thinking about a novarossi take a close look at the plus 7 port turbo, i just picked on up that thing is nuts...

is the Plus 7 Turbo alot faster on top? bottom? I was looking at those too but I've never know anyone who has owned one. I didn't think there was a very big difference between the P5X and the 421, at least not enough to pay extra for it. I was kinda thinking the same thing but I like to hear from someone who has owned one.

alright guys question:

I have an sts .21b modded by dadders on the buggy but i'll be taking it off and using as a back up because though it makes plenty of power for the track it still feels like i could use more

well i currently have a p5x but two more engines are rolling in what y'all think:

p5/jp-2
picco p7r/jp-2
os vspec/2050 or 2060

I was thinkin of running the p5 in the buggy and the picco p7 in my truggy and saving the vspec for later!
