Tanks so much for all the posts guys

The engines have been doing very well and getting more and more popular. More people are trying them out and getting hooked.

Yea the L4 and L5 are 2 of the fastest engines out there and the L4 especially can pull some crazy RPM's. I have a lot of on road guys even running it and winning with against onroad engines.

The L3 is no joke it rips. You will be hard pressed to find any engine for that price that can compare to its power, fuel economy and quality. It even out performs a lot of high end engines so don't let the price fool ya

I do not post in here as much as i should But i picked up a l5 a few months ago after i broke the motor in i put a race tune on it. And it has ran flawless not a single issue iam alittle over 3 gallons on it now. I have ran all the other popular brands and i can honestly say this motor is my favorite. NO MORE Ghost flame outs ex ex... just pre heat add fuel and do normal filter changes and plug changes and motor has been 100% on point!

I've been running the L4 for about 6 weeks this season so far and the motor has run flawless without a single flameout. Just for comparison sake, I threw my O.S. B2101 back in to see if I could tell the difference. Wow, the B2101 actually felt slow compared to the Triton. In my opinion, These motors are definitely the fastest stock motors you can buy.

Can you tell anything about your engine and how it's running from your glow plug? If so, what? Thanks for the help.

A glow plug that has a little time on it and a good tune should be a flat grey color. if it is shiny or oily then too rich, and if the coil is distorted or pushed in at all its too lean.

I know Triton has their own pipes but has anyone tried the L4 on a werks 2028 pipe or a nova 41001/9886 combo? It's going to be for a buggy.

Not I. However, I know that Lance has spent many many many hours testing and refining and testing more. Not just on a bench but in cars. I personally would run the Triton pipes. Seems to make the engines run more efficiently. There was a local running one of the RE10 pipes and it just didn't run as good as what it did on the Triton.

All I know is these are the best motors hands down. They have it all power,reliability, quality,fuel consumption and price. They are easy to tune from the novice to the pro and the customer service by Lance is incredible. I have used a lot of motors through out my years of racing and none really compare to Triton engines. With these engines you don't have to worry about the power being there when you need it and they run consistent I have about 7 gallons on my L4 which is about a year of competitive racing with it and I have not replaced anything on it all I do is use after run oil and make sure it is clean and no dirt got inside of the motor. If you are wanting one or are thinking about it you should go buy one and try it you will not be disappointed.
