Default re-sizing and ceramic coating

There is another person that does resizing and also ceramic coating: rc-performancecoatings.com I personally have had my engines coated and resized. Check it out.

just don't get caught with that ceramic coating as the only ceramic allowed in an rc engine is the bearings... check the rules.

I have checked the rules .... and you are right. But this is a coating not a part! And the rules doesn't say anything about coatings. So there

Nice video for sure!!

Any of you needing service I would definetely recommend trying out RayA!!

The amount of time he spends on your P & S set he probably makes $10/hr!! He's not in it for the money, that's for sure- it's all about the hobby!!

Omar- Ray is top notch. Give him a try if you ever need a freshening. We are going to try to make it to the Toledo Gas Nats, so we may see you there.

definatly dont spend your money on one of the "do it yourself" deals on ebay, If you dont have the knowledge/experience, your engine will barely make it past break-in. myself and 2 buddies of mine bought 1 and we got about 2 races out of them after the break-in and con rods that needed to be replaced. so, for the record, just send it to the pros and forget about it pretty much.

For $17...........I don't see why I have to do it myself......
Beside, I don't think I am not happy about OSRocket's service, but again, my redone MT-12 wasted almost 1/2 of its resized life to get it UNLOCK.....it is simply too tight...oversqueezed...

And after reading RayA's site and the video...........my $17 is definitely going toward to his pocket.

New 5 port Nova Rossi P/S = $110 plus.....and god knows where I can get that from.....

Resize service........never like new, but will last me 1-2 gallon more..........$17.......

Just simple math.........
