I do some of my own mods but the bulk of the major modifying is done by my dad.

We use 3 different tools depending on the job.

Either a dremel, a vertical drill or a lathe.

The site I gave you is very detailed. It is generally directed at R/C Boats but the same priciples apply and the same mods.

Thumbs up

Gentlemen...Thanks again for all the feed back...I am seriously considering buying an RB concepts rody 3 port..But I just cant seem to find a hobby shop that sells them. If any of you can give me some direction as to where to purchase this engine I would really apreciate it. I've checked RB's web site but they do not tell you where or who to purchase this engine from. They do say it will be available at the end of Dec. 2002 so I know they are out there I just have to find out where

Default If You waste your money on any thing but.

Im telling everyboby the AG is for real if you don't believe now you will!!!!!! its made of (Artifical Graphite) there's no expansion of the Piston or Sleeve when running at high temps unlike the a,b,c P/S used in all the other engines to day .
the power is far greater then then any thing else on the market.

Interesting. I actually believe this might be on to something hot. However, I would need to read more on tesing statistics from the company to understand why the AG doesn't explode into millions of bits when it reaches TDC.

If there is no nip and things dont expand and contract how does it maintain a constant compression level.

pure speculation...........your posts clash. In one reply, you asked," what if?" In another you say,"...the AG is for real." The product is not even out yet. If I see an AG OS CVR smoke a Novarossi RE convincingly, then maybe I'll dish out $129 for a piston and sleeve.

Ran the STS RS3 today. Looks promising. Take a look at the Crank.
