don't know that's too far away just yet. Maybe ? Tried the car out again yesterday and it just feels faster every time it hits the track. Adjusted the clutch to 2 mm as well and I think you could even go a little tighter. F*** this car rocks!!!!!!!!!! Can't wait till next race day. Still have a few more things I'd like to try out but I can't get the smile off my face when I'm driving it. NTC3 is just getting pushed more and more towards the back of the cupboard. John Hanson came down yesterday afternoon after I'd packed away and asked if I was happy with the car, I could tell he was not too impressed with the answers I was giving him. Oh well. Will pm you the prices of the Square stuff when I find out the prices. Probaly tonight or tommorrow.

The mugen is so light the 235's boyz get rough with me and I go airborne everytime!
Mine is still placing well at my local tracks against the MTX3s

Hey, patella, I think you may need to invest in the new V-One-RRRRR . . EVO when it's released since you are our resident "early adopter"
I don't think we've broken anything on the K car unless you count the CVD's - and I don't. Ah, yes, we did break/lose the brake disk carrier on two occasions, but the new alloy one seems to have halted that issue.

Dunno how you put up with that solid rear - we tried it a couple of weeks ago and the tyre wear was . . . . er . . . high.

Next month, our club is holding an "Enduro" event. I'm not quite sure of the details but it's going to be a three hour race with three cars per team. . . . Gawd. This is going to be fun.

We disintegrated a bearing in our JP on Sunday - luckily I saw it before the final. We were able to "scrounge" a crankcase for the final and my driver managed to finish fourth - pretty pleased about that considering the company.

Anyway, I'm looking at a back-up engine and considering a nice strong Pixie or a nice cheap Sirio.
Didn't you run a Sirio? What was it like?

Hey Mr Taylor

I have a RB Rody 215 AARCMCC legal motor for sale, only used in NSW Title recently, less then one hrs run on it, heaps of power.

Early adopter! I might have more $$$ than sense like the old folks say (just love the hobby).

The sirio is very quick but the carb is a crapshoot. Some are bad out of the box. I had a friend who had a bad carb in one and mine had a bad o-ring in the low-speed so it would not hold setting. The motor (my opinion) has better top-end than mr12 but not quite as much punch. Don't know anyone that has 3-4 gallons through one though that can report on reliability.

I have seen some people really blistering with the pixie now that they're getting more gas in them though. I'd go with the pixie if I had a choice - especially since the price has dropped. It's heavy, but you will see it's built very well. I don't know how it would do as a backup motor though it needs a lot of gas in it before it starts really waking up.
