I like mine. I had e-mailed Ritchey 3 or 4 times about building me some motors, and he stopped responding to my e-mails for some reason. I had cash in hand, and came across this motor, so I bought it .

Does the RS12S5JP last as long as the RS12S5?
And does the RS12S5JP have more advantage than the RS12S5?
Thanks
Bryan

I have both the standard RS-12 and the JP Modified RS-12. The JP has only slightly more bottom end power then the RS-12. The JP 12's arn't as hyped up as the .21 JP's, but if your looking for that slight extra gain in performance, its worth it.

bryan:

i have seen the Nova S5, a friend of mine who use to run RB's has 1 and is very convinced and he is very happy with it. He was still breaking it in when i first saw it, it ran good and very fast!!!

You should also check out M-Speed's RS12 (www.mspeed-jp.com), price is around US$400+, ordered the motor direct from them. this is by far the fastest .12 motor i've seen around here.

How i wish i could get hold of 1 of Motormans motors, e-mailed him but he said that he is not shipping to this part of the world just yet

I would recommend the S5 though if regulations at your local track allow you to run these..
