I hear it might be for lighter vehicles, but definitely a good tuning option for 1/8GT's. With lightening of today's chassis it might work fine. Steep price though for us who don't have deep pockets.

I have th .21 version of the Speed (Second Generation). It was very good for the GT but it didn't have the Top end of the Murnan RB. Still it was good with excelent fuel milage. The .19 will have less grunt but it must be very economical in fuel consumption.

i can tune you guys some serious GT engines..... consider them a hybrid between onroad and offroad....more grunt then a onroad, and way more top end then a offroad ad killer mileage to boot !

that is a hard question to answer really....not too familiar with the work these other tuners are up to, so I can't comment there...But i can say I am very good at what I do, I work hard, I take care of my customers, I am easy to get along with and my prices are very fair for the level and amount of work being done...All my work is both dyno and track tested, and over the years I have built a very solid reputation with plenty of available feedback...

here is 1 example of my work

I have one of Neals engines in my buggy and it is great. Lots of power and great on fuel.

You can not go wrong with anything from Clockwork Engines. All I can say is I have been clocked and I am very happy I did.

Thanks Neal,
Tim

A helpful tip for those that want to get away from the NiMH RX packs but not too keen on using the RX LiPo packs: try the Team Orion LiFe RX packs. I decided to buy one to using in my Open Class GT2 for the race that I had in Porter, TX a couple of weekends ago. After a bunch of practice laps, warm-up laps and three 5 min qualifiers, the pack barely used 250 maH. That was with a Futaba digital steering servo (which are known to suck down a RX pack after marginal runtime). Got similar drain on it after a 30 min main (and the pack is only 1100maH).
