The mega motor I ran in flordia at the winternats ran 170-179 during qualifiers and 203 after a 35 min main. It was also just as fast down the back straight as most of the 1/8th scales. The mega motor runs rich and doesn't like to be lean. You ask all the guys that were running the mega motors and blew them up they were running 240-260 so maybe all your buddies at your track should try to gain some knowledge on tuning a motor
So what your saying that we cant tune engines your wrong

Andy will be pissed to hear someone say that to him

Mega's need different tuning then NR's (and others).
It's possible that a NR Mastertuner can't tune a Mega.
At least not the way he tunes NR's.

A brainsurgeon can't operate on your prostate...but that won't say he is a bad surgeon.

I know alot of people that run Mega engines and I can honestly say I have seen more blown-up Novarossi's, RB's, Sirio's, etc... than Mega's. I hear all these stories on line about Mega's blowing-up and I rarely ever see it. I have seen melted pistons, bad bearings, worn-out piston/sleeve and other problems that are mostly the result of poor tuning. Is it really a problem or is it just a few people having problems over and over?

I personally own a Mega, Novamega, RB Rody and a Rex and I like them all but I think the Mega may be the fastest.

Jag,
I agree with you about the mega, it's a real screamer ( when tuned correctly)

It's all about tuning it correctly, any motor will and can blow up if not properly tuned, can't judge it by what other people's experience, The ZX .12 are one of the fastest and reliable motor out there

Which pipe would you recommend for the OS .12 TZ 3-port for a medium length track that has a fairly open layout ?

Give the Skyline pipe or the OS pipe a try... Friend of mine told me the OS pipe has more bottom end without sacrificing the rest of the power band.

Use the Skyline pipe lots of torque and tremendous top end can't go wrong if all fail then Try the Vantage carbon pipe guaranteed not to bend even if you hit the wall also produces tremendous power like having a third gear.
