well my new SL3 blew up on sat, still not sure why, it had one race under its belt so it was fully broken in, got 5 laps in brought it in to see why the car wasn't shifting into 2nd, stoped the engine re-adjusted the 2-speed, started her back up, gave it a few blips of throtle on the starter box and bang, my question is this, is it worth it to get a new piston and sleeve, or should i just get another engine, and do you need to change the con-rod on the engine after break in? oh yea the engine was temping at 130 when i brought it in after 5 laps.

Before you decide make certain all you need is a piston and sleeve. Shrapnel sometimes gets into the bearings and ruins them as well.

Check those bearings, I have the serpent branded version and have found the piston/sleeve set to be more durable than the bearings. As for a pipe set go with the nova 2630 with either the short or long manifold depending on the circuit. Use the Skyline VR12 + if you need to boost fuel millage at the expense of a bit of power.

I've tried both the 2602 and the 2630. IMO from actual lap times, the 2602 is by far the best pipe for the SL3.

Contact Korgae @ can west rc, 888-463-3678. You want p/n MX08656MF; it should be around $200 us.

You can also use the piston sleeve set for Novarossi LS3(same set but w/o the added tear drops) or Novarossi NS123 (billit version w/o tear drops)
