yes MArk, it comes with inline EFRA Pipe.
Thanks Goldfinger. Where I've seen the Powerpack Race advertised, they always quote the 2002 Exhaust system being included.......the naming convention is confusing - do you know what this 2002 is refering to?

I didn't want to order the powerpack race if the EFRA 2607 exhaust wasn't included with the pack.

Cheers, Mark.

is consist of SER-201001 MEGA ZX12 LEGAL RACE +
SER-203002 Pipe-set inline ZX12 poli conic (EFRA2607)
in separate package, so there is no special package for 201005.

Order away Mark. Its definatly the 2607 included in the powerpack.

Mine is all fitted up to my new 710 and I'm just waiting on some fresh fuel to kick her over tomorrow.

Get a good 12V gel cell. Cheap too. Should give you enough juice for a whole weekend. If you have a UPS lying around, you can use it to charge your gell cell. It will detect and cut off and float charge automatically. Gell cells need to be charged constantly unlike NiCD and NiMH.


I just lost the wall wart charger for my 12v gel cell. What's a UPS? Uninterrupted Power Supply? You guys know how I can effectively charge the gel cells more effectively other than buying another wall wart charger?

Yap, thanks..
Is it the same with 12 engine?

Last week race, the engine is making very dry sound but producing heavy smoke.
So I think its not maximum performance.
But very consistant throughout 45 min mains.

My engine has the following settings out of the box...

HSN flush with the top of the HSN fixture

LSN 1mm out of the slide (measured from the edge of the silver piece you attatch the throttle linkage to.

But remember each carby is slightly different, and the base setting will be much richer than optimal.

Ok. Thanks.
I was bit unlucky, my low needle oring is stripped.
So I need to take it out and replace first.
Please post your tuning experience after you run the engine.. thanks again.

My lowend needls oring also looked a bit dodgy, a small piece of flashing was sticking out. But I tested the actual sealing and it was fine. I surmise it was just the thread of the needle cutting into the oring on assembly. I'm sure it will be ok, and will be running it as is.
