Default 1/10th INS Box.

What are the advantages of using the INS Box, if it's not mandatory in your local track? On the order hand, what disadvantages will I get from using it? Thanks in advance for your responses..

INS box is only used for noise reduction. Some countries have a decibel level for nitro engines. The INS box helps meet these restrictions. As far as performance there is no performance gain. The engine will have to be re-tuned once you start using one. I believe it will restrict a little bit of air that enters the carb.


Pass you soon...
