Does anyone have experience with trinity's HV or UMH or GP? Is it true that they are only good for about 40 runs??

Hey, I weight my beloved YM34, fully loaded, with a pack of HV, and the new stratus 2.0, it is 1,546g ! I already use Ti screws (except bottom plate) and tierods, and also use the light weight derlin diff, what make my car so heavy ???? All the alloy hopups such as steering blocks, bearing hubs, brace, anti-roll bar .... ????
should i use my dremel to cut down some weight from the alloy bulkheads ????

I have a pixie but it's at the shop getting modified right now. The guys in california are saying the sirio is "hella" fast though. That's fast in west coast slang.
The Sirio is definately not a NR based engine......it looks a lot more like a Picco based engine...the casting is very different to the NR case...... and Manticore is right...the carb "speaks" Picco!!!

Haven't got up to 40 runs yet....but I'll let you know in about 9 months!!

I would be surprised if they hold their 'like new' performance for more than 20 packs.........why did you want them to last forever??

well guys - it's apparently a pretty drawn out soap opera on this rossi thing. They are not novarossi engines- they are Rossi engines. One of the Rossi's I believe is the brother that broke away from novarossi to start his own company. long ago. The other rossi i'm not sure sure of. I'm pretty sure neither rossi or sirio are picco engines cause the guy who told me about them hates picco. Just FYI. I know a guy getting a sirio in a few days so once I see how his goes I may get one too since its so cheap.

yep it's confirmed - there's two rossi brothers. Here is mario rossi with a sirio engine. Picco's are FLYING at the worlds though.
