How was the Nats? I called your shop, but you and your team was at the race. How did your drivers end up?

Thanks Jason.
We did pretty good, but we run 8th scale only and of course with our trusted PICCO engines.

Any Oxygen sensor safe silicone gasket from an automotive store will work.

your question: if i i took off .10 shim to make it total of .30 shim in engine? it will increase the Torque of the engine, the best shimming for 25% nitro will be a total of .50mm shims.

According to Xray, the NT 1 Flywheel is thinner than most flywheel, that is the reason why Xray have the NT 1 collet specifically made for PICCO engine, just to make sure it tightens correctly, and I don't understand who told you that the Skyline VR 12 pipe is not compatible with the NT 1, I don't see why will it not be compatible, I think who ever told you that will need to explain why he said it is not compatible.

That is how it is. The manifold is straighter than most others and because of that the manifold is going to rub the body.

It's not going to hurt anything, a little rubbing is okay.
