I run 6,5 min with the Max engine and pipe.
For modified engines runtime between 5 and 6,5 mins is normal.
When itīs over tuned you wonīt make 5 min on one tank. When the engine isnīt modified you mostly have runtime between 6 and 8 mins.
When you modify the engine yourself try to make the engine capable of driving between 5,5 and 6,5 mins, unless you modify it for a special track.
During the last two races of the Dutch national championship there were Serpent team drivers using the new Mega's.
It had enough power and runtime was impressive, 7,5 min!
They ran it right out of the box.
When they modify this engine you will have an atomic bomb. Itīs a bomb allready
