Who is this? Do I know you? I live in Glendale also. We go there just to chill once in a while, we used to race there but they are not holding onroad races there anymore.

Default carbie

Does the ZX12 Race have a carb with restrictors?

On a Austrian site I saw a ZX12 Sport (#201000) and a ZX12 Race(#201001).... the only difference is the carb according to the specs: the Race has a carb with Wechseleinsatz...the exchangable restrictor.

On the top of this site you can see a pic with all kind of parts: also a carb with restrictors.

http://www.serpent.at/action/mega/mega.html

On myTSN there is no product#201000.
The ZX12 on myTSN has a carb with no restrictor....
Confusing!

I found the Mega tuned pipe for a ZX12 in a shop here ( The Border Online), but nothing on MyTSN....no part #203004.....

Ridder... this is my `personal` opinion,
The price is not reasonable for a 5 months old Mega with 1 gallon on it while you only get xtra inexpensive parts. 1 gallon is at least 4 1/2 hours used engine. I do not know hwo`s R/C being priced over your side (becuase goverment rules such as taxes, customs, etc, etc makes all the different) but in Asia it cost around USD210 without a pipe while the ABC set (p/s) is around USD55 (which is the cheapes among all other performance engine!).

Thanks Pyramid!

Do you know (or anyone else..) the differnce between the ZX12 Sport and Race??
The sleeve and crankshaft are the same (no differnt part#)....

BTW: I get a refund from the seller of the 710 and Novarossi (because the engine was a much older type than advertised). With that money I'll get a engine....but I'm not sure which one...ZX12 or 12TZ

Nobody with ZX12 experience?

Off course there are lots of people with zx-12 experience. I won the Dutc championship with them. The zx-12 tq-ed and won every race in Holland last year. It was used by 80% of the drivers in the championship.

True, the conrod needs a bit more care than other engines, but the piston and sleeve are much longer lasting than most others. So if you don't mind changing a conrod once in a while you'd be well equipped with a ZX-12.

No offence to anybody but the Mega engines are unreliable. They dont hold a tune and drivers have experienced this and got rid of them.
Got rid of it from my 710 and installed a Lamberto Collari on it.
So far so good

Well...maybe I should just give it a try...
I'll see it as a challenge to get a good tune.
I'm a wee bit stubborn, so when people say that it's impossible, I'm very eager to prove that nothing is impossible.

It looks like the carbie is causing tuning problems.
How about a different carb?
Is the carb the same as when the engines first came out?

If it's a real picco carb, you might want to sharpen the needles, they aren't sharp 'default' witch makes tuning the engine hard....
