If you as a driver can drive a race course without making any mistakes then a modified motor is for you. If you are however, one who makes mistakes driving period all a modified motor is going to do is create more mistakes. Most novice racers think that a motor is all that it takes to win a race, but have yet to understand that a lot of things go into better times at the track. A modified motor alone is half the battle. You think the pros win races just because of modified engines? I know a few people who run pure stock and others swear they are running mod engines, but nope they aren't ...

your point is? if you don't like modified motors you don't have to buy them
The extra horsepower and run-time proves very helpful on large track. There is nothing like coming into the apex and running down people who are halfway down the straightaway

True modified engines are not for everyone, but they are not strictly for pro drivers either. My modified engines are for people who feel like they need, or want more power, fuel mileage, different powerband etc.. I know a lot of drivers that are not pro level, and they go faster with my engines. Simply because they can make the time up they loose in the corners, with more power out of the corner and down the straights, and make runtime.

You are right about the engine being half the battle, if your car is no good, your laptimes will be no good. If you are a novice driver, and still hitting the walls, yes you will hit the walls harder with my engines, but I will get you from corner to corner faster.

I never said I didn't like them. It's my own opinion and observation of the matter that which I've given.
Anyhow, reading is fundamental, but I guess the nitro fumes got to you already ... I clearly stated my point ...
Good day to you sir!

This thread is supposed to be about Uriah's motors. Comments on this thread... I thought were supposed to be about the usage of his products. Why have you chosen to derail a thread with a very general opinion about modified motors? If you have such an opinion about modified motors.... start your own thread regarding your opinion. Uriah happens to offer a terrific product at a reasonable price. A lot of people like his products, and he has a solid reputation in the motor business.

Hi Uriah, based on your tests, about how many tenths can a modified engine shave of over the standart one on a large track? I mean like M3 vs T9, or SCT vs modified one... I know that grip plays a big role but I just wanted to know how much it varies... Thanks

I have seen .5 second gains. Even higher, but usually it will be in the range of .2-.3 seconds faster per lap faster than stock. This gain would apply to engines like the T9, and +12 stock vs mod. This would apply at most on road tracks.

what are the pros and cons of ceramic bearings? How long can you run ceramic and steel bearings before a change is recommended.

Thanks

In reference to Murnan Modiufied Engines, I have an experience that will help to clarify some of the statement said here.
I have been racing On road cars for almost four years, at the beginning I was using Stock Novarrosi engines, one of my problems was learning how to tune this engines and run time, never was able to get to the third position, always had a problem with the engines.
I decided I need it to learn more on how to tune this little monsters, so I read a lot (in Panama there is not much help you can get), it took me more than a year, until I was able to tune the engine the correct way, and understand how they work, I am steel a beginner I will say, but I bought a Murnan Modified Novarossi +12-3SCT Full Ceramic, I bought it with the Breaking service, one thing I learn, was that I never had the experience to Breaking the engine correctly, and part of my problem with the engines was that.
Since I received this engine, I have never finish a race bellow third place, I had TQ, first place, one of the advantage I am getting from other drivers, is that, my engine never flames out, I always get between 5.5 to 6 minutes, depending on whether and temperature and of course POWER.
Now that I have and engine that I donít have to bother, I am becoming a better driver, but not because I have a faster engine (it helps), but is because I have a more reliable engine.
I have a friend that when he saw what I was doing with the Murnan, he bought one but he did the breaking of the engine, he has never been able to get the performance I am getting with my engine. The breaking of the engine is very important; I have to admit I am not good on that area.
Hope this will give you an Idea of what an engine like the Murnan can do to a beginner.
