good stuff man! and remember dont use nova plugs you could get a possible air leak or damage your turbo button!

but have you also thought about a bigger head? those stock os tr heads are ugly and small!!!

i got myself a carlson 11 fin head works and looks a treat

also theres the kawahara head for it as well.

OS hyper heads are expensive so stay away from them.

Well, lets see. I have probably 2.5 - 3 gal. through the engine. Its been ran in many races and practice sessions. I have yet to see the problems that you mention. Tell me what the differences are between O.S. turbo plugs and Novarossi turbo plugs please. From what I know (maybe not much) is that they seem to have the same thread size and pitch and seem to measure the same in length. I will continue to run these plugs because they work for me.

Thank you for your concerns
Regards

I strictly use Novarossi plugs in my motor. I've never had a problem. I think people are just using the wrong heat range. I almost always use a 7F which is the 3rd coldest Novarossi plug.

hi guys....i am in a bit of a problem

when i was using the novarossi engine i did add a thin shim between the engine and cone for the flywheel...everything was fine.

but for this tr when i do the same setup the amount of play for the thrust bearing is very, very minimal.

so my questions is whether adding the shim between the cone and the engine is a must? just to be sure, thanks

oh ok well people at my track say no! as nova's have a different taper on the turbo plugs. but hey if racing4evo doesnt have a prob then you should be fine with them rcabj

now with the shimming aspect i believe its not a must. it only needs to be used when you can not see any space between the fly wheel and the front crankcase. Shimming is only needed to bring the flywheel out abit so it wont rub against the front bearing of the engine.
it think thats its purpose.

thanks brain ... i think i'll loose the shim on this tr so that i'll gain back the proper freeplay for the thrust bearing...

I bought a nocer heads for the trs on my ad2 & xxx-nt,they lowered the temps 40 degrees(240-245)to(180-200).Only thing is you need a millingmachine to take 20 thousanths off of the head so it wont touch the crankcase.
