Tell u what, some of u guys just dont know how to read before replying. Most of my post is being sarcastic. I know the PROs use the RZV01B! What I am trying to say with a tone of sarcasm is that I DONT believe that a RZV01B will get anymore than 7 minutes to the tank if running 125cc worth of fuel while keeping a decent temp. If u run on a US style track or any offroad track with decent traction and jumps there is NO WAY a stock out of the box RZV01B will get 12 minutes. I have seen sponsored guys run the OS and they were fueling about every 6 minutes. Find a pro that will back the 12 minute statement and I will shut my pie hole. Till then, I will refuel my RZ every 6 minutes!
Guess I could get 12 minutes out of it if i run it at 350F

I creatively made it up. Oil track=no traction=can't put power down=no fuel used=12 minute pit stop.

I agree with you javier, I just cant belive that a vo1b can go 12 minutes on fuel. Im lucky to get 6 minutes tops. Another thing I dont think the vo1b even if you could keep it running idle for 12 minutes with out running out of fuel

Hey guys,

Any help? Thanks!

i couldnt believe my eyes when i saw you show up

too bad all the really good racing happened earlier this year it seems that the crowd has really gotten alot smaller since the last trophy race

i thought you were doing alright if you had a one piece pipe you woulda probably won the B and bumped into the A

in fact if it wasnt for your pipe coming apart in qualifying you may have made the A

Aint that some crazy stuff. U finally went up there!!!! Told ya that track was awesome! So what do you say, next weekend up at Pasadena? Lets take a break from Doug's and go up there and have some fun.
Jason, u gonna race up there next weekend?

I really wanted to race up there but since the weather was looking kinda iffy I didnt feel like going thru all the cleaning of the mud. Seems like every time I race up there is a mud fest. Oh well, John gets back next week so we will be sharing the ride up to Pasadena.

Hey Tony, lets get together to order some of that Maxy's fuel to give it a try. Figure we can all run 20% and just get a case between a couple of us. Let me know

Eltorito, yeah finally went up there and got my butt kicked, my car was handling like a tyco out there, worst it has handled all year. I was stupid and made a bunch of changes and it totallyed screwed the car up. Yeah we can go with maxy's if you like, just let me know if you want to get half gallons of gallons, I was wrong on the prices, they are a little bit cheaper than I said. Yeah if we do oreder I also say lets go with 20% and see how that works first. Call me tommorrow night. Im probaly going to oreder a one piece pipe this week also, Yeah next weekend sound good

I gotta tell ya, go with the OS 2050. The thing is bullet proof. If u can get your hands on one you might wanna go for it. Since the OS has plenty of bottom end I would say go with the 086 pipe. Should give u decent top end. I had the ofna 086 cause it is pretty inexpensive compared to other brands. And it was pretty thick. I'll give u a call 2morrow around 6 or 7. I think a case is 4 gallons, correct? We can split them between u, me and john and pretty sure I can get a fourth or I could just take the other gallon and see if someone up in pasadena would like it. Lets give it a try.

As far as the set up on my buggy, I think I finally found the best all around set up. All that is holding me back is driving skills. But those will come with time.

the 2050 is supposed to be a really nice pipe but i cant afford a pipe that costs over $100

i still recommmend the rdlogics one-piece pipe its what ive used almost all summer cost me $65

it looks like a 086 but with some subtle differences

i am pretty sure i will be there again this weekend but never can be sure untill sun morning

i hope i can though would love to go for 4 win in a row
