Default RB X12 piston and sleeve

Called many of my local hobby shops but they don't have it. Want to know where can I get the X12 3 port and 5 port piston and sleeve? And how much? thanks

Jack Moss: Thanks for your help. I found someone selling very good price for RB products on Ebay at http://www.stores.ebay.com/id=5947998 for $59 and $79.

Do you think you can give me a better price?

is it possible to put a 5 port piston and sleeve into a 3 port engine (X12) if so are there any modifications that need to be done?

yes you can. Rody mentioned it on his forum. however the casing are a little bit different so you will expect a bit performance different too.

Since you guys seem to know about RB Concept motors.... I just picked up a new X12t five port... I currently run MT12's... how do these two motors compare performance wise?

The 5 port turbo is the best motor I ever had. Gobs of torque and it doesn't stop reving...
