I have one Sirio and It's a very good engine, piston/sleeve fit is tight (like RB) and performs very good (doesn't have the brute power of JP but my laptimes are 0.02 sec slower with Sirio vs. JP), they have several versions (3 or 4) the main differences are on the crank (turbo/no turbo) and the sleeve ports (3 - 5ports).

It's a good engine and cheap, next season I'll go with Sirio engines at my National series.

Default MTX2 solid axle on MTX3?

Does anyone knows if an rear solid axle for the MTX2 works for the MTX3? an LHS made me a good offer for one solid axle, but is for the MTX2.

Don't want to buy if I'm not sure that works for the new car.

mtx-2 solid rear in mtx-3 i dont think it will work

novarossi i would think with a screen name like that you wouldnt even consider anything else

sirio seems to be a fast engine i have seen a few now and they sound like they are overreving when you goose the throttle they really have high rpms

i have seen the sirio 5 port and it looks like a killer engine

but you cant beat the reliability of novarossi engines in my opinion i am running a modded mr-12 now and its great

Default First outing

Hi Guys,

Had the MTX-3 out today for the first time.

The local track which is small & technical was wet & Icy.

Made for some interesting driving on foam tyres!!


Although I'm still heat cycling the engine my first impressions is that the 3 is very sure footed. It glides into corners & the rear was planted.

Who has stock of hop-ups for the 3? Kawahara etc?

Roll on the summer!

hurhur, sorry for late response. Not sure. But hey, I have fitted the Team Magic receiver box on my 3 which looked handsome. Just like me. I can show you anytime at MS. When is your nest visit?

Ran the MTX3 yesterday for the first time (first time back racing in 9 months!)

Car handles really flat. Alot of potential.

Put me down on the list of the "Missing MTX3 Front Dogbone" group. I only noticed it was missing 1 day after I was cleaning the car - God knows how many heats I raced without it

I bent one in a spectacular crash... that was the only damage.

I've since put uni's on the front. They are excelent, more steering lock to lock, and very well made.

well i just checked my car based on your comments and .... i have no front dogbones or out drives.... i'm now not a happy camper!

and the last run the car did was a good 2nd place in a 20min final LOL, probably did the whole race in 2wd!

Novarossi: where's the best place in Aus for me to replace my missing parts! i need them ASAP, i three big meets, 3 weeks in a row to attend!
