A group of us are using the M.R.T line (orange heatsink)...Really good engines and quality worth the price. Ran well with very smooth & good power band. Good fuel consumption with very good mid to top end. Definitely a competition engine to look out for.

i was really no friend of the Ninja engine line, but last weekend I saw the new .21 onroad GRP run in an onroad car and I have to say I was impressed.

Maybe they learned a lot in the last two years, or maybe Mugen provided input which was not really good.

i will keep an eye on those GRP's.

Default reviews needed.

currently i'm looking for a new competitive engine...

GRP is one of my considerations but reviews needed to make it worth.

i've shortlisted sirio, idm and jlr too....any comments?

Novarossi 12-3SCT

I have only seen one of these engines at the track, and wasnt impressed. Maybe it was setting or the driver. Although a friend of mine is using his Ninja and has been taking TQs alot. I myself prefer Novarossi line, because I already got the pipes at my pit box and I can get the glow plugs for dirt cheap.

hmm, nova engines...
i'll be considering the 353+ns12 combo set.
but how's the ns12? and i dont have matching pipes...
pipes i have are the RB turbo, skyline n picco 2607.

the GRP set looks good as the price is not exp and comes with matching pipe.

GRP has had an X-Dyno for months now so hopefully they are using it to their benefit and making more power. I believe this will be their first engine to benefit from the X-Dyno testing capabilities.

Time will tell.

Looks nice.

Hi

I just got my Promo kit from RCMarket (Great company to deal with highly recommend) and i just wondered what shims i need to add or remove for 16% nitro?

I will leave it as it is for run in period and will change once i have run a bit of fuel through it.

Look forward to hearing from you!
