hotmod engines are available at nitrohouse. www.nitrohouse.com

They usually have the N12LL3 hotmod.

If they can't help you, you can go directly to the source and find out where to get the engines from

Hello again,
Since I did not need any kind of special customer service yet, I would say that the customer service is OK. The only thing that was strange is that for a long period there were no Sirio glow plugs and we had to use any other compatible like Novarossi.

I forgot to mention the other excellent customer service that I received. I purchased a BRB piston and liner set from the Palmaris Australian dealer. After installing it it was very tight and during the run in phase it became so badly jammed that the piston was damaged when I tried to remove it. The Australian dealer took the damaged engine, replaced the damaged set for me, reinstalled the set and ran it in for me. He did this all in two weeks. I must say that this was exceptional service and I must commend Tommy and Ed for looking after their customers.

If you have those engines, share your experiences with us. I have no knowledge at all with the collari. The mega engine (I don't have one) seems to be very very fast. Probably one of the fastest stock 12 engines available. It also seems to very tempermental and has had (I don't know if they corrected this problem) a history of bad con rods. If you get one to run properly, they are very fast. The other issues with the engine have caused me to steer away from one despite the horsepower. I have been considering trying one anyway, but have not as of yet.

Update on Sirios customer performance. Neither Italy or the Oz importer has returned my emails for over a week. Seems like they are not interested in helping me, or the other 3 guys I know of in the same situation. Today is almost exactly 7 months since I sent away my crank.

I fail to understand how they can let this go on for so long.

Another good customer service experience just recently. I crashed my Pro 4 with 8x1 Hara revolution motor and the endbell bearing popped out, armature slammed forward and destroyed the brush tubes. Emailed Team Orion and they are taking care of it for me, even though it really is my "fault" in many ways for crashing in the first place.

Gotta say most of the RC industry is standing behind their products 100% which is making me very happy!!

I am delivering cabinets to Vegas in late January or so. Is it the four aces club that races on-road there? Are you racing during that time? Wouldn't mind joining in, awful wet up here in Portland.

It lost it's pinch too quickly and just didn't perform. I never thought i'd be saying this but the TZ kicks both their butts! Long and short tracks. It's a little beast, easy to tune, durable, and a great engine all round!

p.s. rc-mushroom.com has the Novarossi NS12 3 port for $175. That is a deadset bargain. It has a CNC piston, not microcast crap!
I have an old stock NovaMega MS with a microcast piston that has been pinched once and it is one of the best engines I have ever had. It runs great, holds a tune, never flames out, very fast, etc... I don't a problem with the microcast pistons.

I currently have a ZX12 in my car and it is very fast. I have only had it out 1 time after I broke it in on a bench and ran 5 tanks thru it so it is a little early to comment but I was on the track with a Kyosho RRR with a Collari and my car was as fast or faster. Granted, tuning has a lot to do with it and I was just trying to get some gas thru the engine, not fine tune it. I did put an RB carb on my ZX12 because I wanted to see if there was a difference. I do think the Novarossi based carbs are a little better. The tuning seemed a little more consistant, the idle was better and it has never stalled. So far I am impressed with this engine/carb setup.

I plan to get a Palmaris BRB sleeve/piston/rod combo for it. I have heard that their rod is stronger and many of my friends have had great results with the Palmaris parts. I would recommend using at least the rod if you plan to race the ZX12.

With all that said, the guy who has won the last 2 club races here uses a Collari in a Kyosho FW-05R. I think I'm going to have something for him next time.

Oh yeah, one other thing to consider is the clutch. If you don't set your clutch up right the engine will not perform. Make sure the clutch is right... very important.

If I aint mistaking, Palmaris doesnt work BRB combo for Picco based engines (they might). If they do, then its not up on their website. They only make rods for the ZX12. Racers at my track have been using their rod successfully without any breakage.

Default 12 engines

Someone who know something about the Max power 12 S3 modified,
RC-mushroom get them, but will know something about this engine before i buy it, because itīs more money to buy this and for example a Nova rossi or
Mega zx12 race.
Do i get some more "POWER" for that money?

Yes, 4 aces races on road here. Jan 19-22nd is the Winter Wind up. I just got back from the toys for tots at Crystal Park, and it looks like this will be a pretty good race.
