I heard a lot of good things about sts engines especially in Hongkong where a great number of sts engines are being sold there. you must be a good driver for winning the A main, i'm sure you competed with other racers with novas, sirios,etc. In my local track here the one that is very popular is sirio the AAC version, a lot of fast racers prefers this engine due to its high torque. actually, i wanted to buy this engine soon. sad to say that none
of the lhs here sells sts engines.
I like the STS so far I have to admit. It is fairly easy to tune for a 5 port, stays in tune very well, idles very well and is easier to drive than my NOVAROSSIs.
As far as being good to win the A, there was only 2 or 3 very competitive cars in the field (one of which was powered by a 7port .15!) to race against and I feel like I had a good night driving-wise but luck also has alot to do with it!

Good luck finding the STS, you'll appreciate it when you get one. Just be prepared to break it in a lot longer than any other engine you've had. The pinch on these things is incredible. WAYYYYYYYYY tighter than even the Rossi Black Pixi I had, which I though was easily the tightest so far.

Yo Wangcc61,

Man I've been wanting to paint a body just like that one. Where did you get that CHP decal or sticker? That is a nice touch.

You got a siren on that too?

I got the picture from internet by using google...
Sure I modified it abit. I removed some text from that pic.
Then, I add the text "Highway Patrol" and print it on a clear lable.
Remember to back it with white paint. I don't think your printer can print white color...
Before you paint the car body, stick the decal inside the body, then paint it. I suggest you use light color for the area of the decal.

By the way, no siren, no lights....
I was told that wal-mart has a $16 bux toy cop car that has the siren and lights... maybe I should get it and take the siren and lights out and put them on my car....

Default Here is the picture I made

If you want to print this picture on a clear lable and use it as a decal, please remember to "mirror" this pic. I did this because I stick the decal inside the body then paint it with light color (such as white color). If you want to stick it outside the body, you don't need to mirror the pic. But you better put a clear tape to protect the ink (if you are using bubble-jet printer.)

And please do me a favor, after you finish your CHP body, post a pic here...

There you go...
