I used a BRB with my JP engine and it was like a nuclear reactor. HOT! I can appreciate the hard work someone put into trying something different but so far I haven't seen anything better than the ABC sleeves that have been the mainstay of RC engines for years. You'd think if some of these alternative technologies were as good as their creators say they were some of the main engine makers would use them. So far, it's still ABC.

I've been using the Kawahara for a while. Good? Hey man, it's Kawahara. Do you need to ask? The chassis is great and definitely less bendable than the Mugen. Just the right amount of flex for me. Not only is it better quality than the Mugen, it's cheaper too!

It's what I use and will continue to use as long as I have an MTX-4.

Just trying to track down the front CVDs for the MTX-4 does anyone have a link and also a link to a better rear shock tower would be great, I need it to be able to be shipped to Australia so a hooby store that will ship worldwide would be great but if that can't be found just showing me the products would be most appreciated

BRB stand for Berryllium Bronze ( 1.8 %) and actualy it is as most p/l set ABS (Aluminium piston, Bronze, not a brass for sleeve and Chrome plating.)
This p/l sets are not required to run hot at all, but in the mean time it can withhold operating temperature higher then Brass-expantion rate for BRB is lower and pisto material we design for it mutch it perfectly on most immaginable temperatures up to 400 F.
Yes it is legal to race-nowhere in the book any restriction for materials use in engine constraction beside no ceramic except bearings.

It is not that simple-if nobody make then it is not better. There is factor as profitability and nobody can afford ( I mean it) make BRB sleeves beside us and be profitable. Price for BRB is about 6-10 times higher then for regular brass and with this difference it won't be possible to make profit, unless known how to make it profitable.
