Here are some news for the E01 engine.

New Majored Underhead.
Increase by 30% the heat dissipation.
New combuster chamber design for a higher RPM and lower fuel usage.

Available shortly for our engine and of course for all the Novarossi Flash Based engine line.

Albero means tree. I think it means that crankshaft is 11.9, not 11.5.

Default Capricorn LAB E01-BC

Last friday I received my LAB E01 BC engine together with the 2662 exhaust and the 2010 WCE NT1 clutch set.

This weekend we had our nationals at my home track and I can only say the power this engine has is incredible.
There was only one engine with a higher top end speed and that was the factory Gimar engine of Maxim Claes, but the Capricorn engine had clearly more bottom end and mid power.
This is in a field with pretty much every brand of highly tuned engines.

The internals look very nice, especially the crankshaft. Another plus was how easy the engine starts when it is already hot, this is due to the insulated carburetor.
The engine comes with the best description how to break in an engine I have seen thus far, very detailed.

Only had two small issues with the engine, first the carb securing bolt came undone and the carb moved a bit out of the crankcase causing a very high idle during final. Another one was the backplate bolts hitting the monoblock engine mount of my NT1. The engine comes with some nice hex hardware for the engine but the heads of the backplate bolts are a bit too high, replaced the normal bolts and everything was ok.

Ow, and on saturday I broke a rear driveshaft under full acceleration, simply snapped at the CVD side.





Also really liked the Capricorn clutch, it just gives the car a far better acceleration. It's really easy to set it up perfectly to get that clear high pitch sound you want when the clutch engages.
The spring preload advised in the manuel (0.3-0.4) was a bit too much in my case, had to go back to 0.15 preload to get a proper engagement. But after this the clutch has been perfect all weekend.
