Get a good S3 and a good modifier and you'll have a good 'Rody' killer.

Tuned heavily the S3 and the Rody, Rody has a slightly worst fuel mileage. On one of my last S3 mods I got 7:45 minutes pits on a fairly large track (did a final with only 4 pits for fuel, honest).

Best fuel mileage I got with a rody is about 7:20minutes.

Wow So, Corse-R you saying that if you were to use that "Turbo Fan Crank" thing from DanielSon, your run time might have bee like 15min/tank?

My MTX-2 friends, remember this?

If you notice, some early model of the MTX-3 do come with extra hole. It's for this. Just like the good ol' MTX-2.

Nope, sincerely, have some serious concerns about the performance of those 'Turbo Fan crank' (Manti and me). Getting past 8 minutes on a modded engine is quite difficult (first to do is control your heavy finger pulling the throttle).

Probably leaning more we get near 8:00 or 8:05minute pits, but at a risk of doing a BBQ with your P/S. 7:45 is real good fuel mileage for those babies.

But they sayin' they could get 10-11 run time out of a good old single tank, 75ml.

But, in your case, w/ the fuel tank of 70ml, you'd probably get about 9-10 min of run time

I don't know if their mod works or not. But they stated only the crank is modded and they got that run time with stock timing. I love trying things so if they sold the cranks and the price was reasonable I'd test it.

you've got this thing too fast. I saw this item here few days ago but then the pin works flawless so I dont bother to get this especially i need to remove the reat bulkhead to install it.

Do you guys think leaving it a bit looser will help?
