Any idea where to buy them??

Ok i can give u a rought translation of what they do.
Well they port the crankshaft that all i can get out of it.

http://www.pro-s-futaba.co.jp/ go there and click on KONDO...
then they have all the engines. Maybe ill get a 12TR Turbo cause its no where near as expensive as the other mod engines and i will do a review on it. But it might sound strange cause this will be my first proffessional standards engine so it should kick but.
And its only 274 USD which is not bad. but some go up to 721$

PS it says this does not comply with JMRCA rules. JMRCA is the japan racing series.
hope this helps.

Thanks... I had been there.. and checked out the pistons on that site thats why i had those qs. posted earlier. You can get custom engines from around 280$ onwards for the 12 sizes good custom engine mods could be around 350 - 450$

Hi

I used the stock p6 when i ran in and used it for quite some time till i switched to the p8 on a race day and i think it held in there really well for 3 cont. day of racing just one plug.....on the 3rd day i ran the car with a broken silicone pipe on the exhaust which would lean out my car when i was on the straights thats when i had to pull over and shot out..after that day i converted my fw05r to RR and ran my car yesterday it wouldnt start ihad to change the plug i have moved to p6 again since it was stock. so lets see how the p6 really runs.......since its winter here.... i want to try the hot lpugs.
