I have had a couple of OS motors and wanted to try something else out. I might pick up the OS next.

Yeah OS makes a good motor for the money they cost.

As for the RB i hated it the first day, it had me . I had a problem with it because it was getting way to hot way to fast at idle. I figured it had a air leak. After i check for air leaks and didnt find any i decided to see how many turns the low speed needle was set at. It was only set to 2.5 turns while the spec said it was 5. I guess you can say i learned a leason and to check next time. That explained a lot as to why i couldnt let it idle for more then a minute. I also have about 6 tanks throught it now and she has some punch.

If i open it up half way while turning i cant keep it straight and it is very rich still. It looks like when all said and done she should be quick.

As for the G4S i love it 2. The car is very smooth.

Default Accel' & top speed

Tune your clutch to get the acceleration,
I would suggest orange clutch spring (1.7mm) and 0.65mm tension on the spring.

Then you can try going to:
19/50 First
25/45 Second.

The clutch is just the best so, presuming you have the motor to pull it, the clutch will give you excelent acceleration and you'll be right up there on top speed beleive me.

Best of luck.
Tony
