The top of the DS2 was equal or even higher than the R03 ...
I dont know the fuelconsuption on the DS2 with this pipe.

Pieter, this was Jordy I guess?....
He also drove the pipe during the last race at the AMCA track....

So you are impressed by the performance of the DSII, time to switch, or not?......
If I see the maintenance you do on your JP's, I think it will be a lot more affordable for you......

I will run my DSII also coming weekend, weather depending, I will not be there Saturday, because of other obligations, but I will be there probably Friday.....

If I was to purchase an engine now, it would be this one.

It seems overall better than the Ninja and is even cheaper.

The Ninja just doesn't seem to have that punch and this one seems to scream on the long straights.

The only thing i'm worried about is the reliability factor, the Ninja IMO has a better finish and less chance of exploded as long as you shim right.

From what I hear you need to add a certain ammount of shims for 30% with the Ninja or you're risking it.

No was'nt Jordy. Maintenance does not cost a lot, it only costs time and should be done on every engine, even Mega

Lee Muse posted above that he has them in stock.

www.Gasrccar.com

Great guy to deal with.

He even beats the price of ace-hobbies by $319 to $339!

You cant go wrong with the pipe that the Powerpack gives you...

Is the engine that comes in the 201005 Powerpack the same ZX that has gotten the good reviews on here? Sorry for my ignorance, but I can't tell from the limited pics I find on the e-tailers sites. I've found one for $199 and it seems like a good deal...

Hi

I have just installed my ZX.12 into my G4S i bought from RaceDay Hobbies in the US... I am very pleased with the quality of this engine for it's price, can't wait until i hit the track with it. Certainly not as super tight as the STS i have had in the past

Is the ZX.12 there current model, or has it been superseeded by a new model?

Thanks,

BB

Hi

I started to run in my ZX.12 today... have put three tanks through it already, but it appears to be leaking from somewere. I need to have a closer look, but it appears to be from the carby. I know all engines leak a little, normally from the front bearing etc... I am worried about getting oil onto the brake disc on the G4S an loosing my belovered brakes

Hope someone can assist me with this soon.

Thanks,

BB

Hey Bundy, i also am running the Zx12 in the G4S. if its leaking from the carby area ? there are the 2 collets that hold the carby in place. they have O rings on them to seal. make sure they are on or if you havent pinched the orings while putting the carby on. also i would suggest changing the gearing and the clutch spring . i have tried the 18/52 first gear with the new 1.8 black clutch spring. i ran the ZX12 in the mongoose before and it lacked bottom end. making these changes braught the engine to life, totally awesome. try 1mm spring tention gap on the clutch spring.

I bought the DS-II .21 when it came available a few months ago. It ran well but I had the conrod break on me today... chewed up the internals pretty good. So now I have to buy a new motor.

I liked it when it was running, and nice at the price. I want to buy another one but it is hard when the last one died so quickly. I know that is abnormal but still.

PattoJnr:

I have reseated the carby in the crank case just in case i didn't get down far enough. All the orings look good, will have to wait and see what happens tomorrow now for the practice session...

During my brief run yesterday, i didn't notice any lack of punch off the mark, but the clutch is very aggresive

Will keep you all posted
