Maybe i was a little unfair by saying that they have fallen by the way side. What im trying to say is that they have a bit of catching up to do, now that the 35 Plus 21 is out, JP is working on a 35 Plus 21, Sirio, Ninja, etc...

Thanks for the comment - we are pleased with them as well. I can't speak for Messina/Brazil. I can only pass along on our positive experience. The races we attended had a very high level of competition, agreed they were not International - still, great racing - plus, we never had a motor fail.

Who's to say RB isn't developing new products as well? It seems, from what was displayed at Nuremberg and posted on RB Forum, they are developing/releasing "new" 1/8th On-Road power. You have made valid points - RB does seem "low key" in On-Road - but, I think that is by choice - not product ability. I think RB is underrated - let's see what 2006 brings.

Lightbulb

Depends on how ya tune it and run it. Maybe 7 minutes or so

Anyone remember the RB C3? How was its power and performance? I was offered it at my LHS for my Top engine and I'm wondering if it will increase or weaken performance. The only way to know though is to run the top on 30% as is and compare in the future I guess.

I have a Rody V12 3 port standard. I run around 220+ and get 6-7 minutes run time. I've been using 20% btw. If I lean it out a little more and go full speed 6 minutes run time is about right.
