.12 TZ and O.S pipe is a killer combination, the engine really screams with this pipe, you'll get top and bottom end, it's an awesome pipe for medium sized track.

Affordable and fast engines.

STS D3R - Check nitro engine zone for dyno of this motor , it competes with the best. $150
RB V12 - Great power , tunability and reliabity. $219
OS TZ - Great power. $190

If you want amazing power get the STS D12X - Its a limited edition team motor. From what I hear it screams on big tracks.

Also you can get the Nova NS12S3 for $190 on sale.

All great motors and for the price even more amazing.

I've used the RB V12 for a while. Its awesome on a short to medium track but lacks top end. Tune is good as well as durability. Im currently running a N12LL3 and im not a fan of long stroke engines. Im going to pick up a TZ this week. Best value for money and its a bullet! Cant wait to strap it into the Mugen !

The rd 62505 pipe works good with this motor. The O.S. is a pig right out of the box compared to the NoVa's but with a little added exhaust timing they are very competitve.

I am using OS 1040, and I tried Skyline VZ12. For the way I drive, I like OS 1040 better. I think it also has better quality.
