i dont think you can take what the person who posted that picture of the sleeve with the hole in it to seriously as he's just a bs**tter period......

i hope blade or chris will clear this up cause that hole sure dont look like it was done with a cnc machine maybe a dull bit but i could be wrong too. it just looks to jagged to be done with the tolerances blade was talking about. hopefully blade will clear the air on this soon!!

Thanks
No Sr I work with RGX Racing now, but will alway support fusion x. As for blade and Ron they did some things in the mid to 90s from what I gathered.

On the wear so far is normal, the crank shaft pin looks realy good piston and sleave are sealing properly bearings are slick as glass. Clutch has good wear and the truck blade keeps in good shape bearings and plastics tip top. We will be posting a video shortly.
This engine. Is a maxi Cinco, (yes a p5 novarossi) that's mildly modified. It's in a truck it needs some help compete with the 7port mills out there. With the reduced wheel spin the lap times are consistent mileage is the most I've seen

So far what I gather is the mod will reduce wheel spin thus provide better traction that leads to better lap times and run time. Funny thing is, my BuKu clutch system does a phenomenal job of this with my CRE engines. Pretty sure no one has ever pulled me down the straight or gotten better run time than I have at my track. But then again I also know how to properly tune an engine to its performance limits and match it with the correct manifold and pipe.

Maybe your on to something or maybe you have to consider all the other variables as part of the alleged 13 minute run time engines. Looking forward to video.

Yep, what I was thinking, wheelspin is more to do with clutch set-up and how you use your trigger finger.

Hi what l meant was a mild mod on a 5 port engine will not hit as hard and a modded 7port mill, on the bu ku clutch system that adjustability and materials used I'd love to try. A clutch shoe hitting at different times is a killer idea, that takes me back to my TopFuel days. The video is being worked on now and will have it posted soon.

A smooth throttle finger always helps, but when they say down and quite everyone's wide open.

Well I guess things on your side of the pond must work differently than here in Australia, Most pro drivers are either fully sponsored or extremely brand loyal so the best chance to premote a new young company is to provide sponsorship support to the good younger novice drivers to show your product and get as many of them out there for your company to grow.

I know that I started out this way with Extreme Rc Mods providing me support sponsorship, I would pay for the engine and shipping and they provided the modifing work for free to help me out and at the same time get exposure for there product services to help there company grow, So if my post reflects me being a dick in your eye's then I guess im a DICK.

Got to love people that read into post's because they are always right.
