If it were 41,800 then it'd be allright. But this is 51,800 which is about $430! But, I still want it.

It's the Rody RBX12 5-Port, which already tuned by Rody. Then, the Japanese called Kondo Custom came along and mod more on the crankshaft and jacked the price to $430's!!!

But, heard he is good, though.

tempting...

Tough? give you some examples of engines available here:

RB X12 Stock - 200 Euros.
Novarossi S3 - 245 Euros.
RB X12 'Rody' 3 Port - 345 Euros.
JP RS12-S3 - 360 Euros.

Novarossi R1WC - 465 Euros.

Make your own conversion (I prefeer to not do....) when at track you hear/see one of those 'babies' explode, your hair gets straightened and hardened as nails (ouch!).

Naaaah! surely that you want a JP S3? Here are getting some tough spanking sessions. Main slayers are RB X12 'dremeled' and their counterpart on Novarossi S3.

Got 'convinced' by some track buddies to do some engines for them (hey!!! 5 vs 1 isn't too much fair ).

There are too much to gain on the exhaust pipes and many people don't caught (or don't want to caught) on it.
