Talking MR/12 5 PORT TORBO

.

Also, what is a good all around engine? Money is no object.. No course to run on yet.. currently getting back into the sport and would like something fun to play with. Thanks. [/B][/QUOTE]

I purchased a Mugen Mr12/5PORT TURBO engine , its great.!!!
Just ask MTX3RACER he pited for me Sunday and he can attest to the sheer power of this one. I also ran 6.5 minutes
before having to stop for fuel on a 180 ft. straight away, useing 57mm. tires. This is a very efficient engine when tuned propperly.

yes it is a great engine but i believe the NS12 is IMO quite a bit faster.

But dont forget, the MR12 is also cheaper, so yeah, food for thought

I find that the STS engines have a distinctive drone for the exhaust note ... guess they are great engines for the price you are paying. I will stick with my NovaRossi ... plain simple engine to use, hehehe ...

Thumbs up SQUARE New Version of MTX-3 Side Belt Tensioner

The new version is designed to undermount to the cf upperdeck; hence, the balance of the piece itself is retained. The first version, however, have to mount on top with the angle slightly downward, which somewhat has caused the belt tensioner itself to break in half.

first version: topmount



latest version: undermount



NOTE: The design was pretty much similar to what FIVE STARS has designed at first. Also, note that Hashimoto also has the undermount design on its line for years.

Guess, SQUARE did finally learn from the best!

cheers,

fish
