How does the C5 Rody compare to the C6 Rody? Any major differences?

C6 seems to have more power and is smoother right out of the box. The reaction has been very positive to the C6. The much lower price is a pleasant surprise too!

Ok sounds good. I already have a C5 Rody and I love it. Just wondering how you guys felt about the new motors. Can't wait to finally get racing again! First race with SARCAR is this weekend. Should be fun.

Hi all,

I should be getting my c6 in the mail early next week and hoping to hear some suggestion from you guys. What is the proper way or best way to break-in the c6 motor? Is that true it take almost a gallon of fuel in order to complete the break-in process? How do we know that this motor is ready to race tune. I'll be using 20% byron fuel. Any suggestion is greatly appreciated.

Go to the RB Site - loads of good info.

Here is Rody's break in procedure:

The motors make power after 10 tanks or so. Once the motor is stable, holding tune and idling well - you should be ready to go.

The head clearance on my C6 out of the box was only 0.020". I like to run around 0.028" with 30% O'Donnell Race Fuel. There was only 0.3mm of shims under the head, so I added another 0.2mm shim.

I used the Cyrul break-in method as it is very quick and has been kind to all my .21's. The engine was more than I expected for the price (~$400USD new). It was a tough weekend for tuning engines..... 95F and about 90% humidity. Everyone was running temps in the 230's just to get any performance. I took 0.1mm out and that really helped the engine since there was not much "air".

I would definitely recommend the C6 to anyone

Could someone please tell me the part #'s for the RB long turbo plugs. I just checked their web site and it doesn't tell what #'s are the long ones. Thank you.

Hello!

How often do you change the con rod and the rear bearing on the RBs.


Regards

Tom
