"That" site was my "guide" to my 1st "dremel" job. LOL. I got 1/2 the run time, and some more power. Thought the motor did last for 4+ gallons. Dumping fuel into the motor doesnt make a "real" good motor. Wasnt there an article in RCCa mag last year that said there are maybe a dozen people on planet Earth that really understand engine mods. I know enuf now to leave it to the pros, I've had my fun.
I have a LHS to manage, events to orginize, multiple hobbies I'm involved in, N scale trains, telescope, guitars. Oh wait did I mention actually getting to the local tracks regularly? Errrf.

Questions for the Motorman

Hey, Motorman, I've got a few questions. How does your ROAR legal MT-12 package compare to a Rossi CX-15 RACE? Is it faster or about the same? How about the tuning, are your engines hard to tune? Also, will you modify freshly rebuilt engines or do they have to be brand new? Thanks.

DENNIS - Can you list the prices for each of the engines you make based on the MT12? I'm thinking of buying one of them but I want to knwo the price breakdown for each (this price based on you supplying the MT12).

Nobody here in the North East has a RTU or RTO....most people just say 'oh yeah, I think I heard of that'. Well I have ordered the mt12 and can't wait to heard them say...'what the heck was that!?'

Rafaelli - When the people in your area see the engine, I suggest you start referring them to Dennis because they'll all want to get one! Lemme tell ya here in the SF Bay Area, people have been hyping his engines for quite some time now. In fact on any given race day at our local tracks you will see several people running Dennis' awesome works of art!

Dennis you are the MAN!
