Read the article over the evening. Max hp at about 38,000 rpm, 1.87hp. But let's not forget, 30% nitro, P7 glow plug was used. Anyway, the torque curve was pretty flat which is a good thing and the engine was revved all the way to 45,000 rpm and according to the writer, it still have some reserves!! And in some Japanese Magazine, RC world, you can see a serious bad @$$ looking M Speed OS TZ. The crankshaft is ported extensively (from the pic)

hi guys, i'm current using an STS d3r but i am considering a new engine.

i had my eye on the .12 TZ as it is only $190 at rc-mushroom and i have heard good things about it but i have a couple of questions.

1)how much of an improvement would it be over my STS? a little bit quicker or a whole lot quicker?

2) what sort of fuel (% wise, also, what brand do you recomend) is recomended and what sort of plug...i don't want to have to replace the piston and liner every season so nothing crazy like 30% please.

3) will it drop straight into my ntc3 (rear exhaust mounts)? no good getting an engine that won't fit

I am using OS. 12 TZ(p) T5 with OS 1040. This combo is awesome. I am running this on my V1RRR. For this price, I am not any slower than the more expensive Italian bad boy. My friend has a Nova Rossi RR12L5. Even he said that my engine is fast. And, the best thing I like about this engine is it is very easy to tune, not like other modified. Too bad I don't find good deals anymore on this engine. I got this engine at rc-toro for less than $190. I want to try T3 if I can find one less that $180.

yes it can compare with RR12L5. you know it is way faster than STS craps. (sorry)

I stick with P6.

yes, it will fit on ntc3.

lmao, i know STS's are crap...it wasn't even brand new, it was just something to get my ntc3 running.

i take it 'p6' is the plug..if so who makes it?

what sort of fuel is recomended?

The 12TZ will blow the doors off your current motor.

Use the OS P7 turbo plug or the OS P8 if the air temp is above 90F.

You can run Byron's, O'Donnell, Rocket Science or any good racing fuel. I suggest using 30%. It would be a good idea to order the head shim gasket set for the TZ and add the .1mm (copper color) shim to lower the compression just a hair. It will run fine on 30% with the current head shims but adding the .1mm will improve performance.

For those just getting the TZ- you should add the shim as above.
To start the motor, lean the hi and lo screws 1/4 turn each. The motor should start fine there. Also turn the idle screw in about 1 full turn. This will help keep it running. Use a heat gun on the block before attempting to start the motor. This will not only make it easier to start but decrease the scoring of the cylinder wall until the motor is broken in. Set the adj screwsto where the motor runs and run it on the track or driveway, etc like you would normally run the car at the race. Run it for about 3 minutes at a time letting the motor cool fully between runs. About 5 heat cycles should be fine then start tuning it for race conditions. That's it. FORGET all that BS about breaking in motors from the past.

I wouldn't say what you did. STS is very fast and reliable. I have one myself and I run it against the Italian engines just fine with better fuel economy. The compression also lasts quite a bit longer than the Italian ones.

thanks big dog and silver m3.

isn't 30% a bit extreme? how long would my engine last under racing conditions running 30%?

also, you say 90F, i aint to good with maths but what is that in C?

the track i will be running at is www.halifaxtrack.co.uk.

so under 'normal' british weather conditions, should i still use p7 and p8 plugs?

Silver M3, are you running the inline 1040 L52 pipe or the L70 (7mm)??

How does it compare to others?

Thanks

Thanks Bigdogracing,
This is actually only my second nitro engine (ran electric for few years) so I'm still learning. But this tuning-thing is deffinitely a "learned" skill...kinda like "kung fu"...takes years to master and then you kick butt...ok, maybe not ..but this shows there is more to tuning than just needle settings.
But "how" do you know when to try differnet techniques? Like a different plug vs more shims etc.? Anyway, thanks again for the good info. I try to take a little knowledge from everywhere.
