Your best bet is to buy a new one and start breaking it in now, so it will be ready for the Toys for Tots race, you won't be disappointed, but the only thing is .......... it might be too fast for you J/K

No need to buy a used one. It only takes a day at the track to have it broken in and ready to race. Brian Thomas had a brand new one this past weekend and raced it at the club race Sunday after breaking it in on Saturday. I hear his car was a Rocket!!!

Congratulations to Jeffrey Lin for winning the Toys for Tots race at Revelation, Using the very fast, off the shelf "JL Red Dot engine" which competed against other expensive engines, this engine has some serious power and definitely worth the money.

Excuse me for answering your question intended for Chris, They both use the Skyline VR 12 PLUS exhaust system.

I'm curious to know what engines were used by the other drivers at the T4T race? This engine is kicking some AZZ And what other races has this engine performed in other than Revelations?

Also, are spare parts easily available within the US?

Sam is correct....We use the Skyline VR12+. Motor runs very well with this pipe.

I think you can purchase the pipe from Kamikaze RC.

With the motor being fairly new, it's only been used really in so cal. Brian Thomas used one to TQ TFT's at Crystal Park.

In the A-main at the Rev TFT's, there was myself, Jeffrey and I believe Roel and Lucas.

Spare parts should be available very soon.
