simon nicholson, who recently joined us, was also extremely happy with the engines performance and reliabilty and did very well at the Sidney GP. Well, he won... .
burito, do you know if simon was running a modded LRP motor? his R40 was very very fast down the straight at the sydney GP, i thought up until he was running a JP motor or of the likes... wow that is amazing the power the LRP motor has!!

The engine he had was my spare engine from the Worlds in Brasil, but actually this is pretty much what we sell also. Only difference is the crank!
The "sales version" has an EFRA legal crank while the version Simon got had an IFMAR legal crank with turbo scoops, but to be honest with you -> I don't think that makes a really noticeable difference...
Other then that, his engine didn't meet a Mr.Dremel...

Glad to hear the power was impressive!

I was at that meeting on the Sunday and i think the speed as far as i could see was that he had a good entry onto the straight maximising his terminal speed. Now he also had a good engine but you still need to drive the car to get the most from the power plant.

Well i'm certainly glad to hear that the modification was only minor. Certainly a help in someone's hands though that can extract the potential.

Awsome power. I was going to get the new Mega, still based on the Picco but i'm glad i didn't. I want to see some more LRP's going around and the only way to do that is show there power and tractability.

hey everyone.

just wondering if someone can post some pictures of the internals of one of the lrp z.12r team motors...?

i currently run a mega and am interested in trying out either the lrp or max power engine range...

anyone used both motors, who has an opinion on +/- of either?

there's a new engine coming from LRP within the next 4-6 weeks, which is the Z.12R Team Spec.2

All the latest mods, which were incorporated in handmodified engines only last year, are no built into the production engines.

Sorry don't have pics of the internals.

Thx,

Stefan

Anyone know of some online shops that sell the .12 Team, preferrably in HK. Unfortunatly I need a new one I should have changed the rod (had 16 litres through the motor) but today it went through the case. I would like to get the Spec 2 if it is available.

Simon

What are the main differences between the previous version and the Spec2 version?

Sorry for the delayed replies, I was away at the European Championships in Halifax and just returned this morning.

@stefan: you shouldn't have the same problems as Edward I guess...

@b4: is that you Simon N.?
16 litres definitely is a bit much for one rod. We recommend replacing them every 5-6 litres of fuel to be safe!
Our Spec2 version is delayed by some weeks, we expect bigger shipments to be made early september. All good shops should be able to supply them, if not they'll be for sure happy to order them from you...

@Sedanfahrer: the internals are entirely new, but main differences are new timings on both the crankshaft & the sleeve. Also the taper in the sleeve has been revised for a slightly tighter fit.
Powerwise the Spec2 is just better in every aspect, apart from fuel consumption of course...

Yes I suppose I was pushing it to the limit. I'm a big fan of your engines, it gave excellent power right up to the point it blew.

Have any Spec2 engines been shipped to Hobbies Australia your distributor here.

The power figure quoted I see for Spec1 is 1.52PS what is the Spec2 power figure.

You didn't answer one of my questions so i will pose it differently. Is it a marketing choice that LPR Nitros can not be found in online hobby shops.
