I tried to do someone "homework" on Carlsen Tuning, but other than they are a German company, I couldn't find anything.

Testimonials are great for the hobby. With so little to go on sometimes, it's good to get the opinon of someone who has been using the product. In this day and age though, it's pretty important for a company to have some type of Web presence. As long as the workmanship is consistent and customer service is good (i.e. dealing with problems, questions and returns through the distributer), I guess it doesn't matter.

Since I'm running an unmodified OS .12TZ 3-port, it would be interesting to see how it compares to the stock version. What type of fuel and plug are you using?

Im using Byron's 30% depending on the weather I am currently using a OS P6 & if the temp for the day is at 80 degrees or more I also went to the OS P7.
before i could get the OS plugs in stock i've also tried RB,Novarossi,Sirio plugs they work fine on the OSTZ12

I've been running there motors for 3 years now & they have always been consistent in producing more power than the stock version you will be able to see & feel the difference I've got alot of comments on how ballastic my car is.

From my team manager who got the news directly from Mugen he is the owner of brooklyn hobbies & buys in bulk quantitys especially on engines. Sucks cause I was looking forward to testing out the carlsen modified falcon which is the the same as the ninja the funny thing is. when i asked him what the major difference between the 2 it is basically none & the price is the same for either brand. but I like the cool orange head over the grey ninja version
