So the grand solution to the "plug dilemma" is, you can run OS plugs if you start and stay with them(and you may even have a better idle and wider tuning window), but you can't switch back to non-OS plugs once you've had one in. Everything's clear then.

@uwikz ahahha you love that nova price too. But keep the old carb instead the new one. 10$ cheaper and headache free ahahaha.

I got rust in my crankshat. Can I use rust remove fluid to clean it? I'm not sure it safe or not? There's no coating in 4btt with bad fuel and bad maintenence mine get rusted in 3 days after race

You can take the crank out and clean pickup a can of corrosion x Granger sells awesome stuff. Its a excellant lubricant and it binds to metal it also clean the internals. I started using cause my Werks engine would rust so bad it started to flake this stuff cleaned my internal, stopped all rusting while lubricating its save on a ramped crank also.

Default REDS has a spy in the Novarossi thread!

Read this article from Neobuggy:

REDS "41001" header

Reds Racing new Manifold
Engine specialists Reds Racing have announced the release of a new 'double bend' manifold, designed by their R&D department, in cooperation with REDS' Team Drivers. The new polished mainfold doesn't only look great, but more importantly has a function - improving fuel economy, additionally it provides a very smooth and manageable powerband which in particular suits mid to low grip tracks, the result evident in laptimes. The manifold can be used with all and any of Reds' pipes - EFRA 2099, EFRA 2069 and the EFRA 2034. Available now, part # CL210091.


Looks similar to Novarossi 41001

This was actually what I wrote about the 41001 header two years ago...

Yep we are the same here in OZ EFRA pipes only at sanctioned events and since i run most of them i wont wast my time with a pipe not on the list....

I chop and change between 2096/9901 but mostly run the Mugen short Nova header on the XB9 (just keeps every thing in the middle) but some times put the 41001 depending on track conditions....

Cider vinegar.....drop your crank in it for 30 minutes and ALL the surface rust will be gone.....

They probably quit selling them, because they were not cheap, 10 years ago they were over a 100 bucks, think about 140ish?
Ahh the good old 'Waller Power Adapter'...damn I remember this combo so very well circa 2003. RB WS7 w/9886 and 41001 with the Waller in between the pipe and header. Holy balls those we some of the loudest and fastest engines I ever drove! They also drank fuel at an astonishing rate. 8 mins was about impossible unless it was running 300 and then is was so ballistic one could barely keep it on the track. The 9886 is still a fuel hog today compared to the 2096 and 9901. But there is nothing like the sound of a 7 port with 9886 way up on the pipe. BRAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAP!

My crank also has rust, I was wondering if white vinegar would work as well. Or is cider vinegar the only way the rust will go? Also what's the cure for a loud pipe or is an engine that is breaking in louder than usual?

Thanks

Is the 2096 a better choice for the plus4 over the 9901? What will it do for me over the 9901. Thanks.
