The Crank on the left was taken out of my old MT12 for comparison. I took pictures of the internals of both engines, crank case, piston, etc. I'll let you check them out, next time we go out and practice.

For a ROAR LEGAL 12 they're not steering you wrong with the STS 2 port turbo! this is the very best bang for the buck, hell, you can buy 2 for what all those other engines cost.

I got mine for $123.00.

...As fast as the MT12 is you would think there would be more machining (modifications) to the MT crank but it actually looks kinda plain compared to the STS....

Yeah, I know what you mean, but if you think that looks plain, I've got that old OS CV12 crank I can take a picture of...LoL

And back then, those baby's were the standard in .12 engines.

I was talking to my dad about the AG Piston/Sleeve and well it appears this actually will work.

Providing there is no nip (tight point in the sleeve) and parts dont expand/contract the piston will keep constant compression. And because of this and the material needed it would be possible to get around 20 gallons through it at that temp.

Now, I would tend to agree with him as he has been around R/C engines for over 30years and has tuned some of the fastest engines here for long enough.

I for one will get one if they make them available for Novarossi based engines.
