the evo3 w/ the vr12+ skyline pipe makes for an awesome combo on a dirt oval. I did some testing in my sprint car and it likes a lot of gear. I was running a modded 3 port TZ upwards of 300 degrees just to get the power out of it. after i added 2-4 teeth on the spur i can run the evo 3 around 190 deg. and get more out of it then i've found in any other motor.

i can't speak for the 2607, but from what i have seen the skyline will not disapoint you. that's been the hottest topic on the dirt oval scene here since we all run onroad motors, is which pipe does what. the popular pipes have been the rb turbo, rd logics turbo 3, THS 1050r, and the nova 2630. I was the first guy to get a skyline pipe out here but i'm sure i won't be the last.

Depends on humidity, altitude, nitro %
I run the P6th or p6tc with 20%
I think I like the p6th better.
I am at sea level.

Due to a very low traction condition my JLR EVO 2 in a NT1 is underivable, due to the insane torque it produces. Things I've tried, detuned the motor, running 20% O'Donnell fuel, over geared as much as I can, installed the Skyline V-12 header and pipe, adjusted the clutch as soft as it can go. The chassis has been tuned for the low grip condition. Just way to much low end power. Any suggestions?

You can adjust your throtle curb on the radio, if its adjustable on your radio. You can jus train yourself to go easy on the gas out of corners.

You can also try adding a head shim.
