my first motor was the OS rg .21 for my mbx 4rr and it is fast easy to tune and i have had no problems in two years.

i like reliability
honestly those highend powerful motors are harder to tune and they are more sensitive on needles, one hour turning makes a big difference! so really need to be careful not to carry away expecially on top end needle!

Default touchy motors

i dont have the $$$ to buy a motor that keeps me guessing all day instead of racing.

For USD$200 below - The Sirio EVo2 is a screamer, i have the new EVO2 5 Port AAC, run it in WOT for 3 tanks, put it down on the track and race tune it for the next 2-3 tank, my car fly and have no problem catching those guys running JP NS12S5. The new carb is also very nice and easy to tuned.

My last Sirio AAC last me about 4 gallons and I expect it to last longer but unfortunately a blown plug spoil it. However I do have the new JP FX-12 5 port will get it run in and test it side by side with my EVO2.

Do you get your JP from someone in Indonesia? May I know how much did you buy for it?

Here, we have some problem with the new JP FX which is the conrod are scrubbing the back plate. Please pay attention as these engines are so expensive and we already has experienced with at least 3 engines with same problem...

Oh yes one more thing, it's very recommended to change the conrod after the break in process are completely done. Please give me your test result for it's power and fuel consumption.

Have a good race with JP

for more reliability,... OS 12TRPT,... I didn't change my con-rod after break-in and it's not having any problemsafter I hit the 2 gallon mark,... still thinking wether to change con-rod or not, hehe.... but TRPT is not a screamer,... more a mid-end monster

STS D5 is good,... (in the price range)

Collari XS is good,....

Novarossi NSR12S5 is good,... but quite pricey,...

planning to try Sirio and newer Collari (XS210)

Then I would try to contact the mugenracing guys. I think they're the distributor of the JP engine line in the US.

Maybe you can ask on their new forum which is very nice!!!

Thanks,

I found this online shop that has the exact engine I am looking for. They are selling a brand new FX 21 R-02 from JP Racing for 490. Is this a good price?
