Will be trying the sts rs3 engine this weekend at the Biggie along w/ another driver. A Factory driver says if he was running sedan he would try it also......we'll see what it has.

Default Engines

sirio s12trp, sts rs3, jps3 and pixy black engine are among the best engine i know and tested. Among these, Sirio s12trp came out strong and can compete with any engine out there in the market. STS RS3 has all modiification of JPS3 and are equally as fast and comes witha black crank case too.

try look at www.prorc.net for good prices on engines

For the money the sts rs3 is a contender, very strong out of the corners. Top end was not that of a Richie or Sirio on a 270 ft. straight. Well worth $135.00 USD

Well if you want something fast and you don't mind spending 300 on a motor, try that RB rodeo motor. It's a missile.

Anyone know anything about a rumor where anything goes as far as ROAR .12s next year? I was in my LHS and he was mentioning that next year anything goes for ROAR .12s. Obviously, it may have something to do with the fact that he was trying to get me to buy a 5 port Rody but he's a guy that usually knows what's going on. All the racers get their stuff from him and he usually relays info if he has a pretty good idea that it's true. Anyone know?

I heard or read somewhere that ROAR was going to add an outlaw .12 class for the sedans. Don't remember anything else about it and maybe my memory has it all wrong so don't take my word for it unless someone else says the same thing.

Default Fastest .12 Roar-Legal ?

Seems like gearing and individual racer performance are more critical.... for instance, a properly (optimally) geared OS TR can outperform an improperly geared MT12, etc...

It seems MORE important to define the best gears for the track you run, based upon the powerband of the engine - using a lower gear ratio to augment acceleration on an engine w/ great high end, and moderate acceleration, using 2nd gears to get the most out of that great top end.... and vice versa.
