i dunno about that, but still skill of driving the car plays a big role in this. Plus this motor dynoed 1000rpm more at it's highest hp than the TR turbo 5 port and we all know who won the last race. With some creative gearing this motor is upto par with the Italian mills.

I will most likely get the R-spec now, you guys have any ideas where I can break it in, because my neighbors don't like rc's

Sure he won the race but his motor wasn't dominating. Actually, my buddy was running a NS3 and he and Ah10 were consistent top 3 for the majority of the race. The TR was in 4-5 most of the race till the end. He flat out ran consistent times, enabling him to get in good position and win when the NS3 ran out of gas and Ah10 had clutch problems. Let's just say his motor ran good and he had driving skills. But hey, a win is a win no matter which way you slice it. I would suggest breaking in the motor at the track. That way guys could help you out. I always break in on the track. When can we expect you out on the track?

Data has the Evo.

I feel sad for compaq88, it's a good thing my name is compaq888 so I don't have to buy you lunch

Data, I'm missing a fuel tank, tie rod, and a dogbone. Also my servo saver won't fit because i got Hitec servos, same thing for throtale likages.

So the car looks far from running.

I'm on a really tight budget, i had to take out money from my car fund( real car, not rc's), I have to buy a engine, starter box, header, pipe, and probably some car parts and also a fail safe. So I won't even eat lunch

I got a fuel tank for you. I might have a servo saver you could try and maybe a dogbone. I'm sure we could all scavenge some parts to get it running. Heck, I even got a spare motor that recently got pinched that could use some help breaking in. Just bring EVERYTHING.

How far does the mileage get you guys when racing on-road? What glow plug do you all like best with it on 30%? Thanks!
