The engines are designed by CRF (Fabrice Ramella) in Switzerland.

Has this page been updated since the new carb parts came out? Just want to be sure that people are getting the correct info and impression about this engine.

Nano mailed the link you gave but havent recieved a response yet.

I think that if you have an engine with the updated parts (carb body and hsn holder), you could try it with your original clutch (well at least with a stiff spring). I know that some people use their original clutch parts and are happy with them. The CRF parts are just better as they transfer the power more efficiently and last longer

Aggreed but Id like to make sure everything is correct ,after all im going to be doing the nats and have no intention of doing it half heartedly.
Only excuse will be that the nut behind the wheel wasnt in tune

I hope you get some track time with the engine before the race as you will need to tune the clutch and setup the engine correctly. It took me a while to figure it out but it was worth it

Cheers

Here is my WASP setup

Remove 0.1mm shim from the head
Use No 6 CRF plug.
CRF clutch with 2 inserts in each shoe
1mm gap
Red Kyosho clutch shoe

The motor should run around 245 deg F

Cheers

I believe there are currently three .12 WASP Rev CRFs.

1. Original
2. Cyrul Spec (CRF with updated carb parts, which has superseded the original)
3. Murnan Modified

You can check the high speed needle. If it is screwed in lower than the edge of the holder then you have a new version.

If the high speed needle is above the edge of the holder then you probably have an original engine.

Hmm... Thanks!

I have the original engine. Where can I get the new parts of the carburator ? Do you know any online shopping that has his updated carburator?

Thanks
