not necessary true that you have to change plug after breaking in the motor! in fact the plug that comes with the motor is #8 which is a cold plug, it has it's advantages and disadvantages. But I am using RB plug #5 which is a hot plug and it works extremely good!

Yes the engine is fast! I mean fast especially bottom end and it has enough power to run taller gearing! I was running 17/20 pinion and I am running 17/22, on straight away right after it shifts the car just kept flying! I had a great time on Revelation yesterday! the car was fast as hell!

got_speed: I actually got mine at Castle Hobbies in San Jose while I was up there on biz recently. It's an excellent store, and they also carry a lot of the Kawahara stuff. Really cool. Speedtech may have them also.

TambokGT: I'll be at SVM bright and early tomorrow.

ME_Student: SVM is the largest track you'll probably encounter, but just gear up and it's fantastic, especially with other sedans out there. The infield sections are tighter line-wise than you might think, especially when trying to pass people (like 1/5th scales!).
