Nova is ok. Shark's also not bad. RDLogic perform very well....there are too many pipes,you may need to try

I only have problem with LD3's stock pipe(come with box).abnormal back pressure and hard to adjust.Also it is a bit too long so fit for small tight track.Some people use it and feel not enough top-end,so just lean it and lean it till....engine die.Then blame STS suck....

MR6801C & MR607C.
I have tested Boca on my STS for a while and work fine.

If your crank case is black old version,the new carb can't fit.

The STS pipe are still in production, I posted a question about the pipes on Teamcrc.com, and John replied that they are still being made and in stock. Since I am planning on getting one.

thanks Jason
