If you look towards the top of this page the photos you'll see are of my S3 when I bought it and took it apart to show everyone what was in there. I found there were too many people with disinformation about these engines and no official source for people to refer to so they could see what was actually in the S3.
I ran that motor at the Great Lakes Challenge in Toledo a few weeks back and it was crazy fast. I think the P3 vs. S3 question may be more of a durability thing than pure performance.
I just used it for that race so I can't speak for the durability of these engines, but I know someone who has put over 2 gallons through his P3 and it still runs strong.
I wish I lived near enough to run at that Toledo track, man it was nice to be able to let the engine run at its potential. I run at small parking lot tracks so I put the S3 up for sale in the forum and just run my RR12. It's hard to beat on the small tight tracks.
I wish Max would make a modded RR12, now that would be something!
