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.

iam running the grp .12 and .21 onroad engines in my cars, i use too run the ninja both .12 and .21 onroad motors and the ninja compared to the grp is awsome the ninja was lacking bottom end i found, but with the grp there is so much bottom end its not funny and better still there is heaps of top end, ive been racing against the novarossi's and there not that much quicker, but the grp is a great cheap motor

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!
