I guess they did better than I thought.

Final standings

1/10 200mm Sedan
1. Chris Rountree *
2. Al Guerra *
3. Philip Umino
4. Kyle Skidmore
5. Scott Rister *
6. Mike Walker
7. Larry Stone
8. Polo Perez
9. Mike Swauger
10. Larry Pryor
11. Jimmy Huynh

Right on guys way to rough em up.

P.S. None of those guys drive for me directly, they just had horsepower, tires and a lot of skill. Their just guys that can put the power I make on the ground effectively.

Motorman- What plugs do you want us to use in the RTU's? And I'm running in a NTC3(I know I know.... Mugen forever) and I'm getting an RD Logics pipe. I'm just wondering which you would get Turbo or Standard? I'm not worried about legal so I'm leaning towards the Turbo. Any advice greatly appreciated.

Jon

The Odonnell seem to run good with the RTU's and go with the Turbo Rd pipe.

Before starting, lube the piston / sleeve with a little after run oil. Make sure the piston is at the BDC position before you strat the engine. Easier to crank. Also, loosen the plug a little before starting and tighten it back once you get the engine running.

And yes, remember to make sure that the piston goes back to BDC position once the engine dies. You wouldn't want the engine to cool down when the piston is at the top of the sleeve where it is the tightest.

I think in this case better fuel economy does not equal less performance... In fact I think you will get better performance since a finer fuel spray pattern will make for a better air fuel mixture... Just a thought.
To run engine you need some volume of mixture. If you will decrease size of fuel supplying ventury (regardless needl) it will bring your engine performance dramaticly down the same as you put your carb on idle- fuel-air constant proportion)! We tryed to put 9 mm ventury for air and engine automaticly was asking reacher set up-was encrease of power (do not cross reasonble limit). there is no difference increase air ventury or decrease fuel ventury! the ratio air-fuel will be constant ( reasonble ) I think you will not find anything to do it!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't fuel stick to polished surfaces? I would think that you might want some internal surfaces to have a polarized or satin finish?

Hmmm . . . you're being a bit unnecessary here, Top Gun.

By the way, there are two "m's" in "commercialized".
And if Dennis makes a few dollars out of them, then you're strictly correct, it's commercial.
And "toy" . . . gee, there all toys.

I don't know Dennis, personally, but there seems to be a lot of people here that speak highly of his work.
. . . and I haven't seen a lot of people running your engines.

. . so I won't ask you "why", but I will ask you to put one of your engines up against this "commercialised toy".
Given that I'm on the other side of the planet, I would like to call for volunteers to witness this event - any takers, please?

yes it does, it is done that way intentionally, I want it to stick!!!!!!

Dookie's, comment was not negative. DUH read it again.

I will stack my motors against anything anyone can make, they win races time and time again, they are all the same contrary to popular belief. there is no special team engine.

That is my signature work, How much of that work do you see in other tuners engines. ?????

777 I really don't care what your opinion is, bring it to the track and show me.
