Have some units of the Rody modifieds (One 215 model - Cinci Worlds model, one 235 - EFRA version - and one 315 - 5 Port Turbo-).

All of them are real good engines, with lots of low-end and very reliable I'll use on racing without problems. I real tough to beat for the rest of engines, you only need to get tune with the powerband of ths engine (slightly different than other and may change your gearing).

Depending your local rules, 215 model should be illegal (keep an eye to this). But if in doubt between 215 w/conical plug head and the 235 model. Get the 215 model, is slightly more powerful.

darthkir go to the RB web site and check out the HSN and LSN settings. They say if you lose the factory presets start HSN at 5 turns out and LSN at 2.5 turn out, idle with a 0.6mm air gap
