Hey Dennis whats up? Ran the .21 monster this weekend out in Californis at Crystal Park and won the A' by several laps, this motor is so friggen fast peoples jaws just drop. Everyone runs over to my pit and wants to sse if it is a JP. (ha ha what a joke). This motor is so easy to tune and and just flat hauls ass. I will see you at the nats in Ohio with the little car. P.S. Don't forget to bring me some fuel. Its only 108 today back in your old homeland.
Later and thanks for all the power. A 27tooth pinon on a TC3 with a Richey motor is too big unless your straight away is 400 feet.

Dennis,
I know the nats are right around the corner, but I was curious as what your turn around time for a .12 is right now.

P.S. I still have yet to hear a peep from this person?
Actually im not the guy from brooklyn hobbies. I toast those guys when im on the track ! he did say he met you and had a bad experience. I bought my engine with Vindollar we bought to eagles. A while ago. It is still kicking ass. Was that an eagle teh brooklyn hobbies guy had burnt up??

Motorman,
Will you please help me with a few questions concerning a brand new O.S. .12CV-RX?

The manual states to use at least 18% lubrication in the fuel. Will Byron's 20% nitro/ 18% lubrication be good? I'm more concerned with making my engines last longer rather than having the fastest engine. Also, do you know what the oil percentage is for the O'Donnel fuel?

Motorman,
I'm curious as to what effect plug temps have on power. When and why should you use a different plug? For instance, I just bought an RB X12 3 port and the salesman told me to run RB #4's normally but I told him that I might be going to a couple of the heart of america races and he told me to run RB #6's at those races. Why is that? Is it a hotter or colder plug?

higher the number colder the plug, the more you rev the motor the closer you get to detination, with most small tracks, parking lot type you can run the hotter plug to keep it ideling and you never get on the motor like you would on a hoa race that has a 200 ft straight and a nice flowing 1/8 scale track, were the motor will be living at high rpms etc etc, you will get detonation, just like having to much timing in a regular car, except these are more like diesels, and there is no fuel timing adjustment, except the dremel so you need to tune alittle with the temp of the plug, similar to real cars... for the most part a stock motor will run fine on the hotter plug, it certainly will idol better and more reliable.. this is the simple form, not the physics explanation so take that to heart when you critisise,
