do you guys think,in any way shape or form,on an 8th scale track(with an approx) 200 ft (or more) straight,an OS TR(non turbo)rear exhaust with a six gear split,would be capable of running with rb and nova rossi 3 port's(never mind about teh rodys and modifieds).....


thanks..

We had a few guys at running these at our track last year. They where doing ok against a few of us with MT-12's, but they where running them really lean, temps close to 300. I'm sure you could do a good job of keeping up, just not sure how long the motor would hold together. I will say they are good running, dependable motors.

IMO, No. The TR is a good engine but it doesn't have the top end of the Novas, Piccos and Sirios. The best running TR I've ever seen was "on par" on a short parking lot track. However, you could gain some top end with a little crank and sleeve work.

oh no problem ilaybrk. just that yes there was ALOT in there... it did kind of build up in the top of the cylinder though... something to watch out for. Dennis always advised to just use dexron atf. he said that's the best stuff out there... have a good weekend everyone... I'm off

I thought these shoes are in the R&D phase,as of yesterday, but now they're released to the public. They may last longer than the stock shoes, but what about the clutchbell? If that needs frequent replacing, then it wouldn't be as cost effective.

Yeah thats what i was wondering, some one needs to make a stronger clutch bell to make these worth it... perhaps a titanium clutch bell or something aling those lines it would still wear the aluminum shoes but not as fast and at 5 bucks each shoe they arent to big a problem...

I think im gonna buy those alluminum clutch shoes to try them out... ill just use one of my old extra stock clutch bells... to try them out and save the lightened ones for normal shoes... those aluminum ones sure look nice and probably stay cleaner and are at least easier to clean...

Just got back from work and im falling asleep hahaa
how can i fix this problem?
can i use wheel weights?.... and the car is veering to the right not the left........ i redid the set up on the car and i even got a new pipe (dinymite) to see if i changes a lil bit.
cause the old header i cutted 8 mm........could that have been the problem? to much torque with the shorter header?
