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!).
hmmz.. i got a Novarossi S5 for sdg $330
what's the conversion? your prices looked steep to me.

i dont see myself spending more than $250 for a .12 engine or $350 for a .21 engine

the tracks around here are pretty small the extra hp probably wouldnt help that much

i would like to get smeltz to mod more engines for me but i think he is having serious health problems

Hi jason102276,

It's not the HP that we're after. It's the TORQUE!

AMEN!

Many times we freak about HP and revs, but we need torque to move our cars (and a well adjusted clutch, of course - remember: Power is nothing without control).
