Rody, try the Werks pipe that is what I am using. The FT duel chamber pipe is good too.

The other engines you have must have threaded shafts. You will need the clutch nut to suit an SG crank, everything else will bolt up the same

I have an RB x12 in my tc3 foing on 4 years now. IT fits right in. Everyone knows me at Floyd as Charlie with the tc3. I replaced the p/s/ conrod rwice. The end of last year, I pinched the sleeve possible a little too tight. Took a long time to break in again. Last 3 times out it flies. Just does not have the topend of some of the newer engines novas (or my ps12). But with the massive bottom and mid range, it is still quite competative especially in the tc3 with no drag on the drivetrain.

I'd love to be there almost all day. That's when I'll bring a charger for my AA's. Or get some holder for them to charge it up.

Sure think. My Rody is almost done and getting faster by the tank. Gonna give it one more safe tank of running and then soon let her loose. SICK engine.

I would recomend it to anyone looking for a kick ass cost effective motor. The x12 suprised the hell outta me. I installed it into my Ad2 and Wow ....great bottom end and strong top end....i had to gear up the clutch bell to 19 and i can run with 1/8's on the straights.

Rody X12 or regular X12? I'm guessing the regular X12 since the Rody vs would be 2 much.

Yep. That's all you need to keep up with the 8th buggies. Plenty power.
