Simple!
Step 1: Get a really really clean chop stick.
Step 2: Remove the heat sink.
Step 3: You realise the smoother end of your chop stick? Just push ur piston down with it.
Step 4: Light a match and hold it real close to the combustion chamber.
Step 5: Replace your heat sink.

Volia! You have your engine started! If it dies off, go to step 2 and repeat. The trick is to do all the above at the same time! You'll have to be really familiar with the performance characteristic of your chop stick!

Note: Not for novices!

HAG (CHRIS) - We start the Team HardKore Hong Kong (Northern California) chapter. We must have approval from all mighty grand dad Moon first . It doesn't mean we have to be from Hong Kong (or even chinese for that matter) to join right? hehehe. Also you should keep your V-ONE R and convert it to sedan rubber class, then buy a V-ONE RR for foam outlaw like I did. Then you can race either car any place no matter what rule set they use at the local track.

MANTICORE - Are those parts already being sold in HK (those pics you posted)? i would like to get my hands on that 15 tooth pinion. The track HAG and I race on is a really small technical track, so having a 15 tooth pinion would really be good for our small infield.

OK question for all RS12 and MT12 owners. My local track has a straight about 40-50m (120-150 feet) long and a windy but not technical infield. I am racing a V1R with a centax clutch and 16/21 gears and a RS12 plus a good top end pipe against a field of a lot of MT12s. No matter what I do to the engine the MT12 boys reel me in on the midrange and i only get a couple of feet of better top end before I have to brake. All I can assume is the MT12 would be a better engine choice for a small track like this. Anybody have any comments?? I assume the RS12 needs to "wind up" to the top end more than the MT12.........
I think my question got lost in the talk of the new team Hardcore chapter!!!!
