GRP's are GRP made. They make them themselves.

Is the tuned piped that comes with the kit any good? By the comments above the engine seems really good but wanted to know if the pipe is a basic one and needs upgrading.

The included pipe works extremely well, especially if it's the FLS pipe in the promo kit.

Heyup folks, been a while since i have been on these boards (you probably haven't seen me before, i used to lurk around the electric bit)

Well after getting out of hospital after my motorcycle accident, i decided to get back into the wonderful and expensive world of R/C (after selling up my electric gear about a year ago).

Well anyway, decided to get into the 10th onroad so bought an NT1, the GRP .12 promo kit and some other bits and bobs.

Got to building the NT1 clutch and it said 'use the cone that comes with your engine' so thought fair enough but the problem is, there wasn't a cone in the box.

Now speaking to some folk on msn, they were very suprised it didn't come with a cone.

Now my question is, should i get back onto the shop i got it from and see whats going on and where is my cone, or is it normal for the GRP not to come with one and i have to buy my own (which i don't mind, they are only a quid or so)

Thanks
Matt

Default What Plugs?

Hey guys,

I'm considering the promo pack for my V-One. I've currently been running a JLR Evo3, and although very happy with the engines performance, it appears to have 'bitten the dust', but that's another story.

Anyway, with the GRP, what plugs are you guys running? (another reason I'm thinking about moving away from the Picco, is plugs are now $11 us each....OUCH )

Cheers
