One last thing, at the start of this thread you show a prototype motor with an alum. carb. The motor I received had a composite carb which is okay because STS motors usually come with composite carb. Was this done as a cost cutting measure? Did you originally specified an alum. carb for any performance advantages? If I were to swap the alum. carb from a Novarossi or MT12 would I get any advantages or would I mess up the motors performance? Please advise.

Thanks.
On the contrary, a composite carb has an advantage over an aluminum one, it doesn't allow the fuel to evaporate and minimizes flame outs during hard racing. Sirios', Collari's, Picco's, Mega's and RB Rody tuned engines come with composite carbs also. It is an advantage now a days.

BBntc3: best wishes

JAG: were getting good feedback on the motor. weve had a few teething pains and a couple warranty claims but generally all is good. Hope you like it.

YR4DUDE: The picture on the proto is of the long rod engine, even if it eventually comes it will have a composite alumunium steel plastic carb. we have had no issues.

JAG: we set them plenty rich for safty reasons. we figure if your buying a competition motor you should have no issues tuning it in. For people who are not that type I would recommend an OS

RB: I will get to all the PM's tomorrow.

JKEETON:
Long time no talk. where you at and what you doing. I been in this car thing a while now and its busy.

SWEN: Its not that I dont want to do that crank but I'm no longer working Novarossi anything for obvious reasons. Its also a time thing. Being the Team Manager for RD Logics keeps me buried. Contact Uriah Murnan (aka Grinder) I am sure he can set you up with a crank rework for that engine that will be very close to what I would do.

Sorry Its been so long guys. I have been checking in from time to time. However it seems a little dead at the moment.

Now where have I been since christmas. well I was out of town a couple weeks and I have been in the shop finishing this. I've been dragging my feet two years on this deal. I guess Brian at RCX gave me the motivation to finish it after seeing theirs. Ironically I had my design done a couple years ago and it was astonishingly close to theirs but after seeing theirs I made a few changes as he had come up with a simpler setup using more premade stuff than I had intended to use.

Thanks for the reply Dennis, I completely understand your position. I did find someone to do the crank for me.

The question I have for you is when will the R3's be available with threaded cranks?

Jon

Hello Dennis,
I have just received a couple of your motors and I am wondering how they will go in a Stadium Truck. I have worked out a way to put an SG crank motor into a MST . The biggest issue is fuel economy rather than power, we have to make 10 minutes. We are going to try it out next week and I will let you know how it goes.

Regards Brad.
