Due to the cost is real high so we can't manufacture it. I want more time to spend on may R/C car. Not sit at the workstation and assembling engine all day..... The most important key is that no one can accept high price STS engine so far. So we only supply some team drivers for big event.
ok,now you know the story already. I have to call 007 now. Anyone knows the phone....hehe.....

Thanks to Dino for his super hard work as well!! This motor is absolutely amazing, incredible workmanship at least as good as JP. I think that many of the things they learn from this motor will go into the next generation D3R..................

Factory needle settings to start
HSN 4.5 turns out
LSN 4.5 turns out
We suggest that you use at least 0.3 mm head shim. You may need to adjust the thickness of head shim for best performance. These are our guidelines.
FUEL Total thickness of head shim
- Up to 16% Nitro 0.3 mm (▒0.1 mm)
- 20% Nitro 0.4 mm (▒0.1 mm)
- More Than 25% Nitro 0.5 mm (▒0.1 mm)

Just stripped my d5r and took out the copper .2mm shim, not really to important but anyone noticed that the ID of the .3mm shim is slightly smaller than the copper one. I noticed that it just sits above the face of the button, when I looked closer you could see the inner edge of the shim sitting on the inner chamfer of the head button preventing it from sitting flat. I just very slightly sanded the inside of the shim and that seem to solve it.

Does anyone know if there is a major difference between the STS RS3 hand mod & the D3R?

According to the STS website, the difference is that the RS3 is "non-tuned" and non-turbo.
*edit* sorry, i missed the 'Hand Tuned' you wrote, dunno what's the difference between them..
