Default Mega ZX 21 DSII

What's up with the DSII .21 engine. Is it just an updated crank? The porting looks the same, and so does everything else expect the crank.

There are some changes in the engine construction that makes it rev higher.

Well, check again, there are more changes.....

- the timing in the engine is different, for what I've heard,
- the Piston/liner are a bit tighter, so probably need a longer break-in time,
- different conrod as you can clearly see,
- cooling head is changed.

Sup Pato... When you returning to PR?

Anyways... You looking for the Monster Truck Engine? I believe this is the cheapest price I have seen on it. http://rc-mushroom.com/product_info....oducts_id=5915

I'm running a standard rod, the old one and so far have done the Pre-Worlds, a club day and the Nationals, up near 7 hours of running and it still looks great. I don't know if I should keep running it and check it after every run or change it.

I tried one of the super duper conrod sets...
Ran 6-7 tanks on a small, nearby track (Gouda), and everything looked good.
Next day I went to MACH and started running a little rich to heat up the engine/carb.
At lap #9, on a slow part/hairpin in front of the pit area, the engine blew...
I opened it up and the conrod was broken just below the piston.
The remaining part of the conrod slammed into the bottom of the piston/sleeve.
I sent the engine to Serpent, and their conclusion was that it was my fault.
I have been using a Palmaris rod and bearing....I have been "experimenting" in their opinion.
No warranty, but I could get a 15% discount when I purchase a new ZX12....that's the equivalent of a conrod-set that has to be replaced after break-in anyway.
No word on the reason of the breaking of the conrod.
That a conrod fails and costs me a lot of money, is not nice.
But that they treat you like a dumb ass, is what hurts me more.

A O.S. 12TZ is on it's way: more time for racing instead of tuning and fixing.

Aren't You forgetting a part of the story here....
You didn't tell the story that a week earlier you broke a palamaris conrod while the engine was overrevving due to a receiver failure.....
You check the piston/liner, and to you there was no visible damage done.....

Hi!

That,s very important, most of the people forget to verify the crank after a conrod failure, Sometimes they ended oval shapped, making new conrods to break easier, then they blame the conrod.

Recently a local driver had 2 break conrods during the weekend, when I verified the crank, the pin was enlongated.
