Those can be purchased at Raceday hobbies. They'll ship them out to you.
I have also used the G4S aluminum hex hubs. It's also nice. The reason why I opted to change to the Kawahara because it is the wide hex hubs From the looks of it, it has about 1mm offset I might be wrong

Not yet. I'll be running it for the first time on Sunday. As you know, it has a reputation for being a very good engine. Can't go wrong IMO.

Well, a few of our local racers had a bad experiece with the Sirio engines before. That is one of the main reasons why none of us are using this engines hence no one wants to try the Sirio Evo 3 STI. Most of us run Novarossis, JP, RB, OS, and lately one ventured into the JL Red Dot engine

Yeah, I'm going to be the only guy running a Sirio at my track as well. Some people had issues with the older Sirios - but this is the STI and Robert said it's good and so did Dom. Even at the IFMAR Worlds Sirio had a very strong presence in the A Main. I'm willing to chance it.

If you're looking at Novarossi, Grinder says his new modified LS3 2007 Edition has a lot of potential: http://www.rctech.net/forum/showpost...postcount=1890 Can't go wrong with a Murnan Modified..

Go for Sirio and you wont go wrong
I'm now saving for my STI and still running on EVO2 without sweat
But of course, others Brand also good in running, but this just my personal reference..

the only engine ive been running in my rrr is a sirio. it seems to suit the car perfectly. i noticed at a major meet that i was using 16T, 21T pinions while most of the other engines had to be geared 15T, 20T. It was a tight track but the sirio seemed to have more grunt.

It took me a while before I bought the Sirio STI & all I can say is Torque & only regrets that I did not buy it sooner

A lot of guys felt the TZ has a lot of bottom. Well, wait till they see the EVO3 STI in action! I believe with the 2D clutch, it will be an awesome combo!

Bone stock Sirio has been dominating in this region!
