This seems a lot like the Littodevil incident. It is a crying shame that you stopped your engines Dennis but I can understand why. I agree with Smeltz your engine work is far beyond anything commercially or privately available.

Everybody I know wants a RTU if that makes you feel better Dennis. And most of them do their own engine mods.

You do know that its the mod's that the naked eye can not see are the ones that produce the greatest improvement. Anyone with the talent can "mimic" the visable modifications, but 100 to 1 it wont run the same!

Originals are always better than copies. Would you pay the same price for a copy of a Picasso? Doubt it.

Motorman- Is it really true you have really stopped tuning and modifying nitro engines for the public? I really wanted a Richey modified Sirio .12 or Rossi Pixie-Black .12 but I was waiting for your to start tuning them. I was banking on purchasing one when you released them. Please tell me it is not so!

SmeltzRacing- Are you considering modifying the new Trinity/Sirio .12 Engine or the new Trinity/Rossi Pixie-Black .12 engine? I want to purchase one of them as soon as possible. What engine, (the Sirio .12 or Rossi Pixie-Black .12) do you recommend over the other? Both seem like great engines, but I need some information on which one will produce better performance and power. I need a ROAR legal engine and it will be seeing touring-car duty. I also need it to be a SG-Crank to use my Centax Clutch.

Thanks in advance!

Cool another new tuner. Wonder how it matches to J-tech's engines¿ Might be considering getting an engine from smeltz. Do you tune engines if i send one to you instead of buying a new one from you.

Great! Do you have a rough date on when you will be modifying and releasing the new Sirio SP12TRP engine and the Rossi Pixie-Black engine? I currently use a Picco .12 and it has a threaded crankshaft, which does not permit me to use a centax clutch, so I want to buy a modified version of these engines (with a SG crankshaft) ASAP.

Red face WANNA BEEE

Smeltz Racing I think it's more "smells like crap racing" to me

You must be an absolute moron to even try to pass off those pics as your's

Another thing is that I really don't believe you have even been to Crystal Park, Let alone raced there

You're just a nobody who want's to be a somebody by (stealing) someone else's work and claiming that it was all you're on doing
"Heck" I bet you don't even know the differance between a transfer port or an exhaust port

Or even what the mods on "oy-vey" you're motors even do

See ya at the regionals

And HKS
Brad Toffelmire and Tennessee Brown who run RTU's kick everyones kiester regularly at crystal park. Dont believe all that smoke he's feeding you. They kicked everyones kiester at revelation this weekend too.
I guess after reading this post it shouldn't be that hard to figure out Tennesse isn't hiding behind a screen name now is he?? I believe he meant HKS Powers has never been seen at CP at least not seen at a Pro Car West event. At least I haven't.

Hiding theyre's no hiding here
Check out any of the race results in cali and you'll see that I've been in the top 10 or better at every race since january

Do you you honestly think that buying a motor from D.R. and claiming that it is all or partly you're idea is really fair

Oh here's a new name for you're (race team)
R&D racing as in "research & duplicate"

Have you ever been "tea-bagged"

Perssonnely I think you're a "thief"
