Maybe I'll let it go 1st May, otherwise it'll never be on-line!

Once on-line I can go back to rebuilding my tired 710~
Trying to setup my 705 at the moment - doing the tweak and everytime I set the front correctly, the back goes out and vice-versa......it must be the shocks I had just rebuilt them, so I'm not sure why they should keep going off. I setup the tweak perfectly last night and then tonight I tried the tweak again and it was off

I know the feeling Mark but I'm assuming that you're already familiar with the "rest one end on solid block" trick. Hence, the only possible cause for this change here is that your shocks may have bled some pressure overnight and hence the shift in tweak.

Mark (or others), may be you can help......I thought I saw someone posted the picture about how to mod the front shock top pivot ball joint area that will solve the broken shaft problem, by cutting the inside face of the cup by 1mm or so....

Can someone bring that picture back or show me the page of that picture.... THANKS...

Anyway, I think Rene C gave a report on the Pre-Worlds at Brazil. He mentioned that the engines used by the Japanese (assuming those were RR12L3 Kondo ones) were around the same as what they had.
Ini D. is this motor legal
Novamega SX12 Turbo (Michael Salven Modified)
Novamega SX12 turbo nitro engine.
#MEG2105MCP

I just went over to look at the mytsn website. It says that the 2105MCP and the 2105TMS is already discontinued. But if you can get it, both should be legal.

I believe NovaMega has the latest which is the 2106. I think you would be better of going with this one as it is based on the later Novarossi NS12 and RB V12 engine design.

http://www.mytsn.com/products/desc.asp?prid=3187

Also, I believe Mark bought this engine too. Pipe combination is also crucial. Most would use the TP06 EFRA (2170) or the Novarossi 52606 EFRA pipe for best compromise on overall powerband.

That is the engine that I have... haven't run it yet.

I heard that there is already an MS version of the 2106 in the works.

I would think so. I thought that Michael used that prototype 3 port engine in Thailand to race amongst 5 port NovaMax engines ! The performance was not off the mark from the 5 port engines and it stayed pretty close to get 4th placing. Fuel used was all the same and controlled at 25%. Perhaps it was a KHM prototype...

And yes, during the lucky draw at the end of the race, Michael gave away a new prototype engine complete with the TP06 pipe and Centax 3 clutch ! *(%#&(*$^

Hi BaxterC,

There are a lot of different opinions as to how to properly break in an engine... almost as many opinions as there are people you ask!

I have tried the slow break-in, idle-through-tanks method, and it resulted in slow engines. I have tried the "break it in the way you will race it" method, and it resulted in very strong, fast engines.

Here is a very good posting about engine break-in:

http://www.rctech.net/forum/showthre...WOT#post811370

Idling a new engine through a tank or two is useless and does nothing to break it in. In fact, it is very damaging to the engine since it results in premature piston/sleeve wear because the engine does not get up to operating temperature.

Hope this helps.
hey Glenn thats the same way that i break in my motors and it works , its fast and simple, 1 tank at 1/2 throttle and the 2nd at full throttle then its off to the track to lean it out
