Dexter all the litres were done racing and practice and the Qld titles. I wouldn't say it had a real hard life, but I don't expect a long life out of these types of engine. They're race breed and like any high end machinary don't last long in the big sceem of things.

sorry to but in on the v1rrevo thread but regarding your engine post dexter it could be due to several reasons. maybe your break in process was not correct. maybe you idled it too much, leaned it out to early, etc. i found that a slow break in works best for the jps3. i have one and it still hauls arse.
-i idled it for 2 or 3 tanks (did not touch needles)
-drove it slowly for 1-2 tanks
-started leaning it on tank 3 -4
-started driving full throttle on tank 5leaning it more
-drove it at my track hard keeping control of temp. only started touching bottom end at the track.

It could have been the run in or i could of just simply had a dudd i'm not sure but my problem isn't with the motors initial performance but with it's longevity. My motor was ballistic for about 4 or 5 race meets and then it lost all sign of power. I don't think i'm the only one either i know of another three S3's which haven't lasted at all. How old is your motor?

The RB importer once told me that the racing life of a RB X12 (basically a RS12 S1 type piston) was 10 gallons of fuel. Thats 40 litres roughly. I have once much older than this but it has seen its day for sure.

He also told me that the new Rody style motors with the "bar stock" type pistons break in much faster, but their racing life is around 5 gallons or 20 litres.

Dunno how true this all is, but thats what I was told around a year ago.

"Racing life" meaning fast and reliable enough to win races. After this it loses its peak power etc.

Oh ok, well it was my belief that with race motors that they could be rebuilt once and then it's usually best to bin it.

Dexter the mods I was talking about are carbon fibre front and rear shock towers. The front one is like the one found in a V1S kit and the rear is like the standard V1R. The guys said quote " You have to do this if you want to get the car to preform. " Well I didn't think it was any better than the standard gear today at the track. But then again I was only there for a short time this afternoon. And the rain started again, but only after going home and grabbing my gear cause they were going to have practice and some quailfying under lights tonight. Bloody HUEY.

I was always told that JP's are race motors and it is best to give them short and sharp run in's. The main reason being i think that they didn't need much to break them in.
