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.
Make sure you kill the case big time...GM are really cheap...they will give you back your same old case....missing purple coating and all!!!!!

If you want cheap NEW replacement ESC......destroy the FETS on the board...and the case....New replacement is $400 (or was it $450)...for 'WE'........

Ooops...I shouldn't tell you that!!

The diameter I'm referring to is the outlet stinger. Same thoery as the overall diameter of the pipe!
get the collari 5 port if u want a picco. i saw one at a recent race here in spore, the pitch of the engine is really sharp as it screams down the straights. the only thing i dont like about the engine is its carb, so OS like

I'm staying away from 5 ports for the moment.....I need low end torque.....these 5 ports aren't too hot at that from what I've seen so far!!

someone parallel imported the Zac mod engine here. guess how much it costs? a whopping HKD2000.....
have yet to see it run on the track. the engine looks really nice on the outside but not so on the inside....performance wise i believe will not be that impressive.

No, you send in your old one....if it is too bad...they will not repair and send brand new V12 as replacement!!

Looking on the Kawa website..the ZAC looks very 'hand modified'.......you have 'hands' DIY!!

does the 5 ports have crazy top speed then? its always a trade off.....either lots of torque or lots of top speed.

Y30,000 is around HK$1800......assuming they got 20% discount...thats a fairly healthy profit!!!!
