Ill be checking tommorrow. But lrp is a picco based motor. Also good thing about the lrp plug which made me decide to use it on my other motors was its iridium coil. Iridium really stands up well to heat and is the hot topic for use in 1:1 cars as of late.

hi guys, so the engine has been out for a while now. has anyone run into any problems with the longetivity , breakages, tuning issues ?
i have run 2 state titles, and 3 round days with the engine. each titles i ran 5 10 min heats, 20 min semi, and 30 min mains. so in total, like close to 4.5 hours of racing. i replaced the conrod after 1.5 hours. close to 8 lts of fuel minus run in . today was the quickest the engine has gone . i was tuning more for performance today than previously. i have done some more sleeve work and head button mod. id have to say the engine is quite fast. has plenty down low and just wants to keep revving. very happy indeed. also i tried a little something. i turned down an insulator from an OS TZ carb. there is approx half of the insulator left and is a very nice tight fit in the block. i set the tune on the bench and was very close to race tune. i set it on the morning and was very easy to get it tuned. never touched it for the rest of the day, was awesome.

Daniele does not have a official site as of yet. We are setting the web site up for that right now. Just has been real slow as we are waiting for a software update to allow the new info to work the way we want it to. It will be up soon at www.teamxspower.com.

Default IDM .21

I recently picked up an IDM .21 for on-road. I am extremely pleased with the motor (actually, pleasantly surprised). The motor had a strong and broad powerband, held its tune very well, and had decent fuel mileage on top of it all. Nice job IDM.

Also, the support and input I received from Jerry at xspower has been second to none. He definately cares about the product, AND the customer. Thanks Jerry!
