Glad you're back.

It seems that your 1/12 is on gear now. When will it (or the F201) be running?

Hi Nonie, long time no see.
I have my GMV12WE repaired directly from GM office (in Germany). It took me around 1.5mth, and around $170 in HK dollars incl shipping charge ($20 to send, $150 for repair services and ship it back).
Try to browse thru the GM web site for their email and ask them for the procedure.

Hello hurhur

I think I know what went wrong with my old TR!!

The 5 star pipe is # FS-2025-1S Price Y5,760

I measured the dia Manticore...it is 5.8mm....its the same one we saw in PG....they did not have any other!! You still want??

The station is Iwamotocho on the Toei Shinjuku line....one of the exit is very close to the shops!!

Alternatively the Akihabara sta on the Hibiya line is the next best!

The Akihabara sta on the JR line is the furthest!!

Thats is probably a better alternative. Jet waits until the have a few V12s in for repair and then send off in one batch...depends if you get lucky or not......my V12 took the longest....8 months!!!!! That was the time when GM was moving offices......for 6 months!!!

TRs are really cheap in Japan,arent they? did u see any mod engines in Japan, Mspeed, Zacs?

how does the dia of tuned pipes affect the performance? if im not wrong, larger means more torque, less top speed and vice versa?

No tuned engines....I did see a Picco .12RR which you cannot get in HK...almost bought!!!!! Maybe end of the month when Manticore is there!!!

The diameter I'm referring to is the outlet stinger. Same thoery as the overall diameter of the pipe!
