Manticore is much more up to date with whats happening in GP. I'm just coming out of retirement after almost a year!! Even in the XT12 days the RB engines were blisteringly fast but dubious piston to cylinder sealing quality!! I guess that hasn't changed!!!

On a good day.... they are...... on a bad day...... I just want to throw it in the bin. Thats why I also bring along a spare engine!!!

I remember trying to tackle a "flame out" problem one day..... spent all day just "playing" with the engine setting. Gave up in the end. I didn't touch the engine all week and on the following weekend the engine was running fine!!! Go figure!!!

Actually its not that bad!! but I would recommend you read up on how to run-in your engine and how to tune it. You can really screw things up in this department. If you get someone else to tune it for you then you will never learn what does what... it is actually fairly easy (on most ocassions to find out how to solve the problem). A good source of info I find is the Paris racing site:

http://www.parisracing.com

There are a few other sites too I can't think of them just yet!

Not really, if it is just surface rust just clean it up real good before you run!
