I run 30% on oval... 40% seems a little much.... better make sure its broke in.. rod and crank in good condition?

NSX I know your plan! the quicker you get rid of your D5 the quicker you can get your hands on a D3R, instead of melting the piston with 40% fuel why dont you just sell it

Well most of the local hot guys run mugen 40. So it must be good. I'm hearing as long as you get your motor shimmed right youll be golden.

ok,now you know the story already. I have to call 007 now. Anyone knows the phone....hehe.....
I tried the motor on Sunday and all I can say is WOW. It has the top end of the Nova engines but accelerates much much quicker. With it I was able to catch a few people on the straight. I qualified 4th but finished the 15 minute race 2 laps ahead of second place even though I took it easy the second half of the race with an additional fuel stop. I finished the race at 248F--not bad for a hot 100F southern california day.

Default where to buy?

I was wondering if anyone knew of a place i can order a d3r from, i decided this is the next engine i want to get but im not exactly sure where to get one from, i read in previous posts to contact projectzen but there is a problem with their online ordering and no one has responded to my e-mail. I would like to have one in the next 2 weeks so i can break it in and use it next month.

I live in the US if that is needed.

Thanks
Dennis

Rc-toro, mail order site that advertises on this website, has them, I got one from them in a few days, cheap too, 140.00$ plus a little shipping, check their website for more info.....They are a U.S based company so that helps for communication and shipping.....

All this talk about fuel percentage has got me thinking. Yeah you gain power from running more volatile fuel but then loose it when you reduce the compression ratio, do you gain more than you loose?!! Does the fuel burn in a completely different manner, burns slow with lower compression so you get a longer power stroke and with the addition of more flammable fuel its more powerful?! Am I missing something here?

Cheers
