I'm in the market for new engine, I have OS12TR on my GT4-R. I tried to keep up with my friends who have ofna 7port and Collary x12. I love my O.S, but it just can't keep up with those engines at top end.
I never get my hand on RB engines, but i'm really interested in RBx12 Rody modified (5port). Do you think this is a good choice to go? I'd like to hear testimonial/pros and cons for those who has this engine. Where can i get it here in california? The only distributor is sigma trading (if i'm not mistaken). I went to couple hobby shops and they don't carry this engine. So please help me my fellow racers


Long Live Yokomo....

Luke
Just wondering if you tried running at KZ Speedway. theres gonna be a big race next week for 1/10 nitro sedans only. check out their website . Its gonna be real HIGH SPEED 1/10 touring racing at its best. Maybe your friends can come along too.

I have been reading about the rody tuned x12 5 port turbo. At sigmatrading.com, they sell for an amazing $425. That is a very high price for a .12. It kinda amazes me that they sell for so high. I dont own or have I seen the engine, so i can testify to how good/bad it is. I'd guess with confidence it's better than any sirio .12 out there.

Tambok:

You and Edwin going to make it out there next weekend to KZ for the race? It would be just like old times. Someone's gotta get Jared out there too!!

Hope to see you there; I'm dusting off the Impulse

Yo Chris,
yeah I know....just like good old times.

Not sure yet if I can race( plus turbo engines not allowed ). But I'll probably drop by and check you guys out. Is Tracy coming out too?

Craig Tasker is currently the fastest guy out there....same time as the 1/8 open current track record. He can run that track blindfolded.

Yeah both Tracy and I will be racing. Tracy is prepping for the Winternat's in Florida. I drove his GS cars yesterday. I was really impressed. I'd say it's as capable as any other TC out there. If I remember correctly, Craig set the track record with one.

Hope you guys can make it out there. I'm gonna call Jared and Haz Mat too.

The SMP Slide is probably one of the worst 1:8th cars on the market. We ran them here for 1 year and it cost a fortune compared to the Serpent NT.

I agree with you...cost wise it looks so expensive, but performace wise the car is pretty impressive. I wish i can grow some dollar bills on my backyard

front1wayfreak- We do not carry RB because they are too hard to get, that is why alot of other hobby shops don't carry them also.

www.kustomrc.com carries a lot of RB engines and parts. I got my X12T there. I'm sure they have or could get one. Has anyone tried them? I'm kinda curious myself as for how much these babies are going for.

You think the engiens are hard to get, carb parts and engine parts are even harder. But i do like the brand.
