For anyone considering on trying one of these engines. I've ran the same engine since June in my buggy, it has the power and runtime for any track out there. I can do a fuel gun pit at 10-11 mins no problem and have ran up to 13 mins before. I have yet to have a single flameout or any kind of issue what so ever during a race, practice, or whatever it may be. I'll be going on seven gallons and there is till pinch like there was at 2 gallons, just take your time breaking the engine in and get a good tune on it and it will run and last forever.

Use the T5C for everything under about 32degC, anything over go to the T6C.

Thanks, that'll work great, I'll get a few 5's and possibly one 6, it gets hot here but anything over 32C gets a lil too sticky here and just not worth running in.

I'm going to be running the R5R in my MBX7, I have a clutch bell question, looking for the best bell that'll mount up nicely and curious if I should be running a vented bell or not? The bell will be going over a Werks 34mm Light clutch set up mounted to an M2C engine mount. Thanks in advance.

Is it more worth it to replace an engine that had taken in fine dirt or just replace its Piston & Sleeve.?

If there's no damage to the block then you're perfectly fine with just changing the piston/sleeve and bearing. If your engine is sealed get the Buku crankcase caps and it will all but eliminate dirt from getting into your engine.

Btw...are you a Radiopost dealer?

ingesting dirt is tricky, you can have damaged bearings worn out crank pin and so on... inspect all these things.. but i would replace engine..

thats just me

Not the exact answer to your question, but I would send your whole engine to Lance at RcRenew. Write him a letter, tell him what happened and he'll inspect your engine and let you know what can be done. I'm mentioning RcRenew because I've used them a couple of times and had good results. If you ship 2 day, he'll fix it in one day and ship it back fixed and you'll have it 2 days later.

So, has anyone had the chance to run the new Quattro ( 4 shoe ) REDS clutch system? I think it looks great, with the easy adjusting and all.. What are your thoughts?

Derek has ran the clutch for 2 weeks now with great results. We started off with it set in the high stall position but quickly set it to the standard low setting. The clutch is very easy to work with and we have seen very little shoe wear running on high bite indoor tracks. We still have the same bearings in the clutch that we used to break in the TE2 engine and have ran 2 races with them as well. The Reds products are working out great for us with no issues at all. Thank you Alex and team.

I've used them a couple weeks aswell. In my D812 the High position was too much and would literally blow the tires off coming out of almost every turn. The car was also breaking in, but I would defintely suggest starting out on "L"
