Hey, Steve, I've noticed you are doing Zac, I'm retailing ROSSI and Active.
How are the tyres doing for you? I'm finding my customers are asking more and more for quality rubber.

Dennis, the best of luck to your future projects and racing!

Your motors will always be the best. Just to let you know, when the new racing season starts, I know the RTU won't let me down.

I am about 50% through building my new NTC3.... And so far i have been a little disapointed about the quality of the kit. I have on numerous occasions found that screws are missing from there bags and one of the screws for the mounting the shocks had a bit of of a hes driver broken off in the head of the screw. And this was a sealed bag from the factory! I have also had problems with getting the screws to fit into the plastic and had to bore it our to make the screws fit....

Did i just get a bad kit or is this a problem?

Cheers,

Andrew

Thumbs up

Thanks for your response Dennis....

I have now completed the car and ran it today it is just awsome the amount of speed i get out of it. I did the lid modification to the standard tank and used the recommended lengths of fuel line in the instructions, but am still having problems with the engine stalling. I can still see air bubbles in the fuel line and have a feeling this is the problem and may have to use the mugen tank like suggested by yourself earlier. Apart from that is there anything else i can try to improve the suitation like loosening off the tank a little or running the pickup hose from the tank around another way to get it away from the heat generated by the pipe? Any suggestion much appreciated.

Cheers,

Andrew

I know you aren't doing public engines anymore but you have been an excellent reference on other engines as well. Do you have any knowledge on the JP T5 S1? I saw that you have posted the T5 is a strong out-the-box engine, but is the JP modded one worth the coin, or is the stock one pretty much all you're going to get out of a .12

I actually asked those same questions earlier. Difference is I asked if the stock S5 was as good as the stock Rossi Pixie Black or the Sirio .12 engines...

Default Pipe down the center of NTC3?

Motorman,
I am currently running a MIP Stinger down the center of NTC3, but would like to try a different pipe. I was curious how you modified the stinger on your pipe to point backwards. Did you just bend it back or did you have to cut and re-weld?

Motorman,
I meant the stinger on the pipe. The one on the picture you posted seems to be repositioned further back on the pipe.
