Hey guys, I recently ordered the STS RS.12 Modified motor. I was wondering if I would need to do anything to it in order to make it fit my NTC3.

It seems as though I need to do some sort of maintainence before I even put it in. It would be nice to get a definitive answer. Thanks! I got it because of this thread so smitty your plug worked.

I just want to make sure I got a good engine! And it wasn't $125 it was $149.99

The STS MT 12 was $125

what's the difference? between STS MT 12 and a regular MT 12?

do not use toilet paper!!!!!!!!! it contains lots of dust, try to use a lint free cloth
also, just use fuel to clean the inside

For cleaning the parts, I like to use a soft tooth brush in a cup of fuel. Just enough to submerge the parts, and get them nice and clean. You can dry them off with low compressed air, DO NOT OVER SPIN THE BEARINGS if you use air, you will ruin them quickly, remember you just cleaned any lube that was in there.
Proracer, I hope you enjoy it! I know I like mine

No, you shouldn't need anything to get it in.

RTD...that's "Read The Directions" , in the paperwork that comes with the engine it tells you to open the engine up and "rinse"it out completly, wiping off anything that may be inside...

I bought mine from a guy who's a "dealer", he has no overhead and just charged me Cost, so you could say the $24.99 was your dealers profit...

Very true......I see it in my Novarossi R1 and JP .21 engines. That would be the first thing I would do open the engine, clean it, and lube it, then break it in.

I think that is a WRONG IDEA for STS to use MT-12 on their engine.........STS MT-12 is for Buggy use, not on-road engine at all, compare to the Mugen Seiki MT-12 engine......

Mugen Seiki MT-12 is for on-road, and that is NOT the same as the STS MT-12.....

See here...

http://www.teamcrc.com/inventory2003/stsmt12.htm

For on-road use, the RS-12 is the engine that we are talking about.....again, same as Nova Rossi RS-12 (I meant the name)

The MT-12 is an awesome engine on-road or off-road.

Here we go again !

Novarossi has tricked us by using the same name twice !

Mt-12 is the Mugen Novarossi onroad engine ( came with MTX-2 )

but Novarossi also have their own Mt-12 Novarossi offroad engine !

So you are both right

Serpent at Mytsn just recently addressed this issue and posted a tip. I think it's the same problem with every engine when the shim is not placed correctly...

I just got the motor from ups. Hey how do I know if it's a turbo or not? The box says turbo but I ordered a non-turbo I think..

I'll be cleaning the internals before I break it in!

Any helpful hints while I get this bootch ready?

It's the Modified RS .12 - What modifications were made to it?

IF it is a turbo, then the plug hole will have a taper to it, that is the sealing part for the plug. If not, the the sealing area will be flat. I also got the turbo instead of the standard unit. In my opinion, you really should use the right head. I used a MT-12 button, and it worked, but when I installed the correct button, it seemed to run better. Give CRC a call, and see if they can help you with the button.

Default sts hand mod engines

well, this thread can definately be turned into an advertising gimmick for crc (and sts of course). Although I know the fact is alot of Taiwanese racers use STS engines but . . question is . .

is this little sts mod engine really as fast as JP ? Someone mentioned JP !! JP Black !!

and to say that taiwanese are good copy cats. .. copy cd, copy dvd, copy this and copy that and now copy JP ?? serious ?

Internal parts and mod cuttings are "the same" as JP ?

Are you sure ?
