As a matter of fact, we are in the final stages for a new LRP 1/10 Competition pipe including a proper manifold. The pipe is finished, but we still need to do some tweaks to the manifold.
We are aiming on April as official release date.

To get more bottom end power, try to richen the bottom end needle about 1/4 to 1/2 of a turn. If this doesnīt help, try to get your hands on a Picco 2607 pipe incl. conical header. This is the one we have been using the whole season and it fits perfectly to the timing of the Z.12R engine.

Cheers
Andy

Hi Andy,

I've been using the MaxPower 2615E with the conical header. Seems like a good match to me, have you done any testing with this configuration.

Are the LRP turbo plugs interchangeable with the Nova Rossi ones?

In my opinion yes but you will need to get the short nova plug.

@afiq: is your friend experienced in adjusting nitro engines? it may well be that his temperature isn't very high but that his settings will eat plugs... but 110°C is actually already quite high, I personally like them the most right below 100°C.
What percentage of nitro is he running, which fuel and what is his total head clearance? 3 shims isn't a very accurate measurement...

@wyl03: actually we never had serious issues with the rod. of course some my go bad, as on every engine, but if treated well they last a fair bit of time. I personally replace mine every 5litres of running. nevertheless, since all bit of engines get improved, we have an improved rod for 2006 which should last longer.

Fantastic News from the X-Dyno crew...

There is a new horsepower king on their tests, our Z.12R Team Spec.2! Attached the test graph we got from them.

This is an unmodified engine, which had the best ever results on their dyno and they have been testing lots of modified engines as well!

@wyl03
The LRP Z.12R Team Spec.2 has the LRP order# 32101. The old LRP Z.12R Team (not Spec.2) engine has the order#32100.
You can see that on the packaging aswell as on the engines cooling head, which has an additional "Spec.2" engraved.

Since we sell the Spec.2 engines, we have not done any specification change which affects power output or characteristics.
So if you order 32101, you will be fine.

Best regards,
Andy

Sorry for my first post. I havenīt readt the posts before.

No, there is no visible difference from the outside of a 2006 and 2005 version.

Best regards,
Andy

Hello Azri,

Michael already called us today and tols us, that he met you. He also said that the track over there is great and he enjoys the racing.
He normally runs Off-Road only, so I am really anxious to see how he will perform in 1/10 scale On-Road....
