3 11.25
4 9
5 7.5
6 6.428571429
7 5.625
8 5
9 4.5

In my country the guys using the Force .28 OFNA Stock engine, are getting as high as 7 minutes and 50 seconds of run time, most of them pits every 6,5 minutes ...

OS21VG is getting 8.5 min of runtime. You can probably get over 9 min with a restrictor. It would have to be a tight race over 45 min for an extra pit to matter (I bet will be). If you could squeeze out one less that is 10 to 15 sec of your total time. Or do you just go with the 28 and hope it is putting out more power to gain a 10-15 sec lead. Oh the strategy

Are this run times during very competitive racing or practicing on an open track with no other racers in the way. The reason why I ask is that I noticed a few minute discrepancy between run times per tank in running on an open track in practice to running on a track with 10 other competitors and fighting for position/holding off the competition. With my engine, I can get 8 to 10 minutes per tank on an open track with no other racers pushing the car somewhat hard. However, when you put in the text of competitive racing, that drops to 6 to 8 minutes, give or take a few seconds.

That its normal, usually during racing you tend to be more "throttle finger happy".
