ok, i just spent the whole day at the track. We had a race with touring cars and guess who got 1st place, a guy with a mtx3 with a OS TR-T

a lot of people ran mtx-3's and he also did too, you could clearly see he kept up to everybody in the turns but when it came to the straightaway he got smoked. At the 5 min mark all the italian mills ran out of fuel, and of course he was still going. The italian motors had to be restarted, while he came in for fuel and kept on going. You should of seen the look on some guys when they found out he had a TR-T and they had $250-300 motors and lost. After the race i asked him how much he got the motor for, he said $160.

Personally i think with better cooling and the right pipe the OS TR-T can probably keep up with the Italian mills on the straightaway

I have the os tr (p) te(spec) engine and it is very fast. I run the kyosho tuned manifold and pipe in my fwo5 r and it keeps up with the piccos sirios and rossis on the straights (i have changed to 39th diff ring gears) but it is faster in the infield and more drivable and never has flamed out on me once. The run times are much longer too. I like it but the other guys at he track hate that I have an engine that competes with them at 1/2 the price.

Hello from France ,

here's some pics of the TR T-spec 2004
- new cranck shaft ( higher exhaust diagrams)
- new machined piston (light and cut)
- new sleeve (for the new piston)

you can also see my personnal on the cranck (EFRA legal) and on the carburator.

My motors have at the same level than a JP mod or Rody mod with less consumption...

ˇˇˇˇWOW!!! that's between U$ 275.00 - 306.00, man give me a break...... that is to expensive. You can get a Mario Rossi Modified Novarossi RRL3 for 275 euros in Spain.
I'll wait for USA version at U$180.00, and get a new pipe and extra plugs with the spare.

Can someone recommend a good pipe to use with the TR-T. It's for a NTC3. I'm expecting the hyper head in the mail any day now and I'm currently running the pipe that came with the team kit. I was thinknig of getting the RD Logics pipe......ny input on this pipe or others? Thanks
