Default FX 12 T-03 MS Single Needle Model

For those of you that have this engine, I need to know how effective is the single needle set up? I am thinking of getting one but the single needle approach kinda scares me off. Can someone with run time with this motor share sum info on how it runs? thanks..

yeah I am going to go with the stock FX.. I was considering the V12 just under the Rody mod the last three numbers are 430 but sum have said it only good for short to medium size tracks.. that bothers me cuz if it doesn't have any legs for top end why use it on a big track.. Hell they are priced at 229.00 so it might be wise to have the RB for short techy courses and the JP for big tracks. I'll see what The Wife says, lol the Financial planner ALWAYS has the last word.. lol
