Never tried to compare side to side. Next weekend I have a club race with 1/8 cars, so I'll try to compare them if you're interested.
Yeah, I am interested, please let me know how
that goes..

I've had the .21 Sirio for a while now and cant
seem to see the difference in power especially on
the top end considering it is rated higher than
the other traditional motors. But it is a pretty good
motor, no mistake about that..

I ran into leaking problems with the carb even when
I was just breaking it in. When the motor really wouldn't
run because no fuel was being funelled into it, I
tried to use one of my RB carbs and it was a perfect fit.
It ran the motor pretty decent too. I just wonder if the
motor is holding back some power that it can give out
since the RB Carb has a smaller air inlet diameter than
the Sirio's. Another guy is running the same Sirio .21 &
his car seemed stronger (both top and bottom).

i've had the same problems with the break in of my sirio .12, i cant get fuel to the carb. the problem comes from that high end needle housing where the fuel comes in to. when its tight, fuel cant get to the carb. when i loosen it just a tad, fuel goes to the engine, but leaks out all over through the spaces in the inlet. I havn't been able to get it started yet. I'll have to dig into this some more. have any of you experienced the same problem? if so, how'd you take care of it short of putting in a different carb?

I have run the very first batch of the .12 AAC and have good results with them. No problem with leaking carb or needle problem. There are quite a number of guys here running the 3 ports and they all of them seem to be running fine too. Maybe they have a bad batch of carb out there.
