Mine is moddified and yesterday won the day at the track whippin the nova and rossis and jp engines. (I had won heats and races before but never overall winner on the day, and never beating the guys that were there) It doesnt have the same whip out of corners as the novas but is much smoother and as a result was faster. I say get it and modify it and you will be trully impressed 10+ liters on mine now and it still feels stronger than ever! It can take taller gears too no problem.
Yea im trying to find a solution to beat the heat as mine likes to run really good at 250 F. thats with the body off and a overly richen bottom end. if i set my bottom end really good the car will run sluggish top end wise as i have to richen the top end beacuse of the temp its running at (230 without body).
so after your mods rcosmax do you stilll have the same power but a cooler tempretured engine?
im gettng the carlsen head that has 11 fins hopefully that will help.
also i've only done about 15 tanks through my new OS TR 5 port. will it run cooler after it gets more tanks through it? because the compression will drop slightly after abit of use? as right now i cant turn over the fly wheel with one finger!
and guys what are your screw settings at?
as i've over richen my bottom from factory so i could lean my top... now im thinking to bring my bottom end screw to its factory position as it had a great take off and idled perfectly.
sorry about the long post just wanna get things ready for the next club meet.
thanks in advance to all comments
