The 8 plug makes the engine smoother with more top end than a 7. The 7 plug will have a little more pop on bottom. I tried the 7 plug, and the 8 is way more durable on Homesteads long straight.

I learned a lot in Miami. It was my first time there, and probably the last before the WC in April. I had lots of problems with bodies. The light weight bodies can not stand up to the down force placed on them, even with lots of stiffeners. I will not run the light weight body there for sure. I even melted the lite weight body behind the engine due to the heat. The engine was only running about 250F max.

The engines ran great though, especially after switching to the Shephard clutch spring. It is the best spring on the market for sure, IMO. It made my engine feel way more powerful than any spring I have tried.

We tested some different modified engines, the 35+21, Flash Special, and RBC10. All made similar laptimes, and none were great on fuel mileage. I could have made mileage, but it would have been damaging to the engines. I did not want to use one engine per qualifier. All of the engines I used are still in great shape, and ready to race again.

It looked like some of the top drivers that made runtime were using a new engine every qualifier. Must be nice. Hehe.

The track is a blast to drive though. There is nothing like going into that sweeper full wood at close to 70mph without lifting off the throttle!!

The long body retains a little more heat. It seems to be slightly hotter, idles slightly longer than a short body plug.

There are 3 Choices when it comes to thickness.

Reg
Light
Superlight

Not to be off topic on motors but what ones are you all referring to.

Default Novarossi Cup China

At the Novarossi Cup in China on the weekend, the M3 driven by Samuel got the TQ and 1st

what is so amazing , this is the 5th Race without changing anything. same bearing same conrod with at least 5 gallon of 25% nitro fuel. I only need to do vision inspection after each race.

Samuel have won 3 race with the same engine, 2nd on another race. I raced once at the FEMCA. I think we going to test how far it will go.

Samuel prepared a new M3 in case anything happened but was no need. The engine idle perfect and stable all weekend so he decided to keep the same engine for both Sat and Sunday.

MaTa Wang Q2 and finished 2nd also uses M3. Both of them are the only driver go below 14 sec per lap on touring during Qualify.

JJ Wang also did well in 1/8 using Murnan (not sure was 35 or Kangaroo) Q3 but had a fail pulley right at the start and started 2:40 sec after everybody. Made the fastest lap in the final and came 5th overall.

The MM Kangaroo is comparable in power to the stock 35+21. The 35+21 has about the same peak power as the mod Kangaroo. Some of my drivers prefer the MM Kangaroo over the 35+21 due to the smaller tracks they race on. The mod Kangaroo launches very hard out of the corners, and gets better mileage than the 35+21.

The stock 35+21, and mod Kangaroo are getting similar lap times. The Kangaroo launches harder, and the 35+21 revs slightly higher. My favorite is the MM35+21

Thumbs up T10rc

Hi Uriah,

I have a T10rc MM engine i purchased just run in from a local racer in Sydney. All i can say is what an engine it has converted me to sticking with the MM product from now on. Awesome job very neat and performs excellent with heaps of power and made run time with ease.

I will be ordering another very soon.

Thinking of trying the Nova Flash what are your thoughts on the differences between the 2.

Cheers,
