What happened to the Capricorn CL12-ET??? Did you already quit that motor? And if so why? Just curious because mine is just starting to break-in and it's damn fast.

Default OS 12TZ Spec II

I have spec 2 and its literally bomb proof... i use it as my training motor and it has served me flawlessly over a year now... its has gotten faster over time and gone through a bearing change... i have so much faith in its reliability that I even race on it despite having a more expensive italian motor as my original designated race motor....

in short, fantastic motor.... not the fastest around but it forces you to drive better to catch up... excellent reliability too... bomb-proof is an understatement.......
