Motorman:

Thank you for your response... I had thought you might have been snowed under with work etc

I am looking forward to getting my hands on the R3 and letting it loose down under here in Oz. I think it is great what Rdlogics an yourself are doing with the R3 an for the customer to be able to have a one on one with you guys to be able to discuss any issues etc.

I am certain i will make use of it

Thanks,

RR

sorry I'm a little slow at times guys.

Qlder you will have your hands full with the power in a stadium truck. Its going to be pretty light switchy. If youve driven a nova in a staduim truck it will be the same.

Any word on your .21 engine? I have not seen it mentioned in a while.

Which of your pipes would you recommend for 1/8th on-road? The track I would be running on usually has about a 200-250 foot straight. Thanks.

Have you been able to do any dyno runs with the R3 yet?

Motorman,

You say it is comparable to the Italian mills. Can you be more specific as to what level? Are we talking S3 and above? Is it putting out as much as the JP mods?

I don't doubt your motors or your work. However everything has its strength and weaknesses, it be nice to know what the power curve of the R3 is like in constrast with those big name high dollar motors.

I still am having issues with the software with the new dyno box. we know there is a timing issue with our flywheel pickup that is causing low numbers as the novas are testing in the same range. Our dyno is very close to RCX's dyno but is using a newer box made by the same company. we are working with them to solve the issue. I can tell you if you compare it to the recent RCX testing on .12 engines it is in the mid to high .7 HP range but exact numbers have not been nailed down yet. However we know that is where it is out of the box. On our dyno a RexRER I modified made .50 hp and our engine out of the box made .47 so we are right in there. I have not published any numbers until we get the dyno issues resolved and we are concurrent with the numbers RCX is getting with their machine.
The other issue is this. If we publish the real numbers then the uneducated (newbie play drivers. Hey with the right hype I could sell you a brigs and stratton to put in your car) won't buy the engine because we wont publish 1.5 HP level numbers cause it aint true. ( I questioned the .7 hp data for a long time but I am now satisfied after doing all the calculations myself looking at the RPM vs Time sweeps with given inertia. can't deny physics) and if we publish 1.5 HP level numbers when RCX runs an article on it we will look stupid like we have no clue what we are doing.
This all make sense?
I think after the winternats which is our debut for the Mongoose car R3 engine and TurboII pipe combo that if you ask somone who was there they will tell you the R3 has no problem keeping up.

12 engine test? Which issue? The latest one I have only has 6 - an OS, RB, Sirio, Musen, Top and Rex... Of course the MOd RB topped everything, but the X12 wasn't too far off...

I can only guess that he said 12 referring to the size of the engine, meaning .12. That is how I understood it.
