As far as the Collari's, this is what they told me(back East guys)... I've never run them myself. One of the guys in Florida is starting to MOD (just told that about an hour ago) them so they must be alright I guess.

Yes same guy.The colari's are very fast engines....but have a rep of not lasting to long.Had mine for 6 months with not problems until now for a rebuild.Most people change out the carbs.I didn't cause I had a great motor man in my pit.

I've also seen the backplate leak, seal that and check the backplate surfaces to check for machining error, or otherwise imperfect surface. The top two screw holes go all the way into the case so it can pull air pretty easy. The nova carb will help a lot on the intake side. I thnk your prob is the backplate though.

It's recommended when you get a new colari engine to take out carb and clean it out. I do this with all my new engines, then go thru all screws and seals prior to running it.

yeah but I sold my kyosho set-up the day after that finishline race. She had a good farewell run though and went to a good home.

A lot of people sleep on that collari 5 port...if you put the right pipe on there and tune it right it is a rocket...faster than a lot of modifieds

Hey Pit-racer

How many gallons of fuel did you get before rebuild??? My last Collari(Picco .21) I got 8 gallons(30%)thru it before a rebuild... So these New ones go through Piston/Sleeves sooner... Most of the guys I run with are running JP's or RB( Sig/MOD's). I was thinking about a Collari(Sig/MOD to be different). but if they don't last I'll pass since I'll be running 40% for 1/8 now... Just lazy, besides being a BAD Driver...hahaha

Last I remember you moved to Texas(I think), did you move back to good old SoCal...

Where are all the old guys on Royal Rumble??? I just see names I don't know...


Have a Good One!!!

I ran mine through several gallons, and its still like new. CR bushing shows no measurable wear yet, P&S good as new. One thing to know is the piccos use a different taper and don't SEEM to have a lot of compression to begin with. I think the CNC'd piston may wear better too. I wouldn't say there's anything to them not lasting,IMHO. I would tear it down to check screws and clean carb first(Before fuel), maybe even check CR and crank fit, as the quality can be hit and miss.

Default Collari Carb Problems

Replace it with either a Novarossi/Rex/Top slide or an STS Slide. They are direct replacements, just drop one in. The advantage of the STS is it is composite bodied like the Collari .12, but it has a large velocity stack molded just like the new Traxxas 2.5 (which only has a 10MM throat diameter) or a velocity stack like the JP Modified carb. Another nice thing about the STS is it is double o-ringed and not prone to leakage. It is a 3 needle.

The benefit of the Nova based carb is that is all aluminum. There are some who feel all aluminum is better overall and deal with the hard, hot restarts.

Either way, your turbo motor will really respond.

There is a guy on ebay who will resize your piston & sleeve for $20 if they are not pitted. He has a ton of good feedback too!

OB42TC3: Thanks for the button it works great! I am going to seal up the back plate as soon as the sealant arrives thanks for the advice I didn't know that could be a problem.

Mike: Check out the GT4 thread I put up pictures of the car now finished and put together. Let me know what you think, the paint job is a little rough but it'll work until Jerry gets done with my 911 GT1 LM body. Did you ever get that Mazda LM winner body? By the way I ran the car after last weekends race with Ed and Lee for a while and it really flew, until it died, on the top-end it just kept pulling and pulling. I actually ran out of space!

reptilian: I e-mailed RC imports about a piston and sleeve and they told me to check with my hobby shop. That STS carb sounds like a good idea, I might try that if the sealant doesn't work.

Thanks for the feedback I apperciate it, ain't RC Tech great!

P.S.....Wheres Schuey and Montoya at? Aren't they supposed to be up front, not Alonso

Smile 2003 STS Carburetor

If you want to use STS carb. in your engine.You have to make sure which one can be used.The STS 2003 new 5.5mm carbureter will not have the under o-ring ditch.We move the under o-ring to the crankcase to avoid customer damaging it when they take off the carbureter. But there is a under o-ring ditch on the old carbureter.

I was also using 40% in the xs12,and about 5 gallons went thru it b4 problems. I'm going to try 30% next time and see if I notice a difference in performance. Thr guys from RRR don't race in full force anymore just like 2 at a time.Yes, I'm in Texas land of the nitro! I'm waiting for the delivery of my sts r3 engine and pipe also.

Hey Pit-racer

Well good racing out there!!! Do you guys have a formal track now... Last time I was there few years ago we raced at at stadium parking lot for some Big event... Man I'm getting old I can't remember where it was, but I know it was in Texas, and it was a Big event, because Ron Paris was there laughing at me as usual...
