You should be good with .5mm even if you're track is only medium.

With .4mm you should have more bottom end while losing a little top end. Be sure to check your plug and piston head after each run for overheating/detonation. By going to .4mm you will increase the chances for piston damage. So if you wan't to be safe, stay with .5mm as it should give you a wider range of tuning on how (rich or lean) you want to run your engine.

Hope this helps.

Default Great engine

this engine is great... after the boring part of breaking in, i can feel the power when the tuning almost get there... it feels abit better then my previous .21 the R1WC by nova
still need some fine tuning and i think i need to play with the centex setup abit... too much punch not so suitable on my local track...
anyone going for the Serpent Nitro Tour in Thailand??

I agree with you.....

Even though the internals don't have the expensive tuning options, like silicon, tungsten, the power is nice......
Also the price is VERY nice, but this seems not to be to important to a lot of racers.....
They complain the hobby is to expensive, but yet they still keep on buying the most expensive engines, which a lot of them even can't handle the power of......

Have fun with your engine...

1 more thing....
It might seem better then your previous nova, but how old was this engine....
If you bought a new nova 21R1WC, I think you would have the same......

This is also when people buy a new car, and then come to the conclusion they are 0.5 Sec faster then with there previous model.....
I wonder what times they could run if they bought a NEW kit of there previous model......

So, don't jump into conclusions to early, just enjoy the experience.....

I ran my DSII yesterday at practice and I'm very impressed. At first I was having problems with bottom end until Winner's Circle let me use the Mega pipe/header combo from the power pack. The motor ripped without touching the needles and I bought the pipe. This motor is very fast, no tuning issues at all and not one flameout. I ran against a Murnan 35 plus 21 and a stock 35 plus and there was no noticable speed difference bottom, mid or top end. For the money I got more than I paid for.

I confirm everything that Quietstorm said. My 35plus21 and his DS11 were completely equal in performance everywhere on the track.

I knew that the DS11 was fast because the engine that Quietstorm 76 is running was my back-up engine. He saw it run in my car and wanted it. I love the DS11 powerband. The power delivery is very linear. It pulls hard from low RPM all the way to the top end. There is no soft bottom followed by a mid RPM rush. The DS11 has the most driveable powerband of any engine I have run.

I just tuned the low end on the bench. It was still very rich from the break-in. It would only idle about 5 or 6 seconds before stalling but now it idles good. I wonder if that was causing my milage problem cause I could only make about 4.5 minutes. I always ran out of gas before everyone else.

Why did you buy the 21+35 then?....
Just curious......

Now it will even pull more out of the corner......
But, keep the low end a bit rich so that the engine "gorgles" (?) a bit, on the bottom....

I am a hobby dealer and I want to run what I sell. That way I can answer my customers when they ask how a 35+21 compares to a DS11 or how a 960 compares to a Kyosho.

I pulled the engine apart to check for detonation but it was clean with a slight golden color on the piston and button. Plug looked new. M7H, how long do you run before you change your rod.

I ran 5.5 Liter (1.5 gallon) with my DSII (including break-in), now i'm gonna change the rod (or atleast before I run it again in about 3 months from now, it's wintertime here.....)
The rod still looks very good, but better safe then sorry....
changing a rod on a 5 liter interval is quite common, so they seem reliable....
