Well, in my Inferno GT I ran 10k in the rear with 60K in the front. Tried out 150k in the front, was great for more sweeping tracks.

In the Team C GT8L I've done the kit setup, which was 5k rear 10k front. I did 80k front 20k rear. Right now it's at 20k front 10k rear. Thinking about trying 150k front 40-50k rear.

Thats seems to be the case.

even after taking off the deflector, the engine is still particularly loud.

Your right! this thing IS just damn loud. I really didnt wanna have to give up the power this engine has, but it seems i might be a new werks b5 or b6 owner.

having said that, how would the b5 or b6 work with the ofna jp4 pipe? should I just pick up the werks pipe and header too?

1. does anyone have any experience with those fioroni clutch system? in particular, the one with a propeller design
VexVegaz, did you end up trying one of the clutches? I have one, but haven't had much luck finding a clutch-bell that works with it and I can still use the Kyosho pinions. Thanks for any opinions.

His battery was really warm after running, and he pushed me hard into the turn's as I was at a weight disadvantage. Also acceleration out of the corner was very good.

Having to only stop once in 30 min was also pretty good.

i picked up the fioroni vario four shoe clutch. to get it to fit and have the kyosho bell lined up, i had to put 3 x 1mm ofna shim between the engine and the collete.

They will work with the JP4. However, Werks engines really open up when you put one of the Werks pipes behind them.

Breaking in the engine for Timezone. Did I mention how bad I hate cheap engines. They don't idle well, temps are all over the place. weak power, and they are butt ugly.
