sorry, it's kinda boring waiting for the R-spec engine, we will get back on the topic as soon as Tower releases it, which should be at the end of this month.

I finally got my motor mounts in today and it looks like they will fit an OS engine, they are the $35+ kind motor mounts, but i got them way cheaper

hello from France,

My 12Tr T-spec 2004 run now 10 liters of 16% nitro fuel (EFRA specs).
There's no differences between my engine and the JP or Rody's...
We run only on very large permanent tracks.All italians brand refuel at 5mn and I at 6mn and the t° is lower....

I just change the rod after 2 liters and the engne is like new.

The new machined piston is so good.

Enjoy it

hello from France,

My engine isn't stock. I made big mods. So , I got same power than JP or Rody's.
The piston is machined not molded and it make a big difference.
Is the US version with the machined/cut piston??

The stock engine is at the same level than RB V12 or Nova 12LL3 or another stock engine but easier to tune ....

hello from France,
The carburator is modified like JP's Venturi carb....
The only parts not modified are the conrod and the heatsink...

that's why my OS can compet JP and Rody modified engines.

With the stock OS, i'm sure you will be better than other stock engines ( RB V12, Nova 12LL,sirio evo2....)

bye
