Sorry I didn't know that. I actually started modding engines at the same time as Uriah Murnan (we raced at the same track), so I guess I've been doing everything wrong all those years.

DAMN!
Here is some information from OSengines.

Info on the OS Speed motor: The Crank's exterior is specially coated to minimize friction, the crankshaft also features a large mixture passage "filled with silicone to increase crankcase pumping pressure".

Same goes for quite a few companies , not even modifiers who add in silicone to the cranks. I know ive seen them first hand and have removed the silicone to do my own job and there is no extra drilling to be seen. Some maybe drilled , but it doesnt have to be drilled to have more crankcase pumping pressure or find benefits from using the technique.

So yeah , one could lean to the fact that you might be.

Well Stefan a ns12s3 crankshaft is the same as a JP FX t03 crankshaft same inner diameter and no the JP is not drilled out bigger towards the "clutch" so why does he put the flow ramp there.
If it doesn't do anything why did novarossi come out with a tunned version which the only difference is the flow ramp on the crank.

considering that the JP FX .21 engines are novarossi S821B crankshafts and come from the factory drilled forward with no filler. No JP does not drill crankshafts out.
thanks, drive through.

It's not drilled bigger, it's drilled BEHIND the silicone, where the regular crank is solid.

Hard to explain. Pull the silicone out of a JP crank and you know what I mean.

I know what you mean the same crankshaft from the novarossi is the same same as the JP he does not drill it further..
This what JP says:
EFRA Crankshaft The modified and lightened crankshaft is filled with the special red putty which is positionned to improve the gas passage. In order to reduce the friction and the wear, the crankshaft is HardBlack coated.
