Nitro D,

Sorry for the late reply. You mean how its holding up with the .12TZ 5P on it?

Its doing pretty well actually. Its still the stock WCE version except for the front diff. No damaged parts so far (fingers crossed). I personally think the engine is a bit too much for our track, but it still great. Nonetheless, I still havent leaned it up as much my friend Doki-doki has done with his TZ.

cheers!

Just some hop-ups (F&R Universals, 1-piece engine mount, aluminum wheel hex hubs)

Thanks for that, is there anything that the WCE has that improves its durability. Cause i'd prefer something durable than something really fast, not saying the RRR is slow but you know what i mean.

By aluminium hex do u mean hex screws. Because i can't stand normal screw drivers.

We might get axed here for having this out-of-topic discussion, but I think the only major difference which improves reliability is the universals.

better have this discussion on the V1RRR thread.

he..he.. i'm still on the rich side xbeta... what to see the real performance of the OSTZ engine, i'm making the engine leaner about an hour turn every race and see how it performs. i'm running my engine with a 6.5mm carbrestrictor from my rb rody engine. planning to get an mspeed one... so far, i really like the performance of the ostz engine

Anybody have this problem?

It was faster than the megas
I had this before. It means that your low end was a little bit rich when you started the main.

Because of the sleeve design, it needs temperature to ensure a consistent tune across 10 mins or more.

Just make sure you didn't have a dragging thrust race or bearing in your clutch.

Thumbs up

I ran the TZ 3p on the weekend, I used the crank off the TZ 5p -bigger (7mm vs 6mm ) intake hole...makes a big difference to both the power band and the run time....I can see why some guys running the 5p are struggling....6 1/2 minutes MAX

I've also found that the oil content makes a fair bit of difference in the HP stakes, I've been using several fuel brands with mixed results, but the engine makes the most power and rpm from a 10% lube mix...

I'm still not too convinced on the OS T1040 5.2 pipe..

And to those that say they wear out quickly...my TZ is coming up on the 14th litre (3 gallons) and still has some nip when cold at TDC..

It also could just be an isolated manufacturing flaw or metallurgy anomaly.

Hey guys, just wanted to update something that was said a few pages back. I actually talked to the owner of the motor yesterday, who wasn't who I thought it was (the individual that let me know about the problem had purchased the engine for this other person). Though the original motor was from Hong Kong when they were first introduced, I don't think this was an OS problem.

The motor was, in fact, broken in old school by idling 5 tanks through it on the bench. Then idled around the track for two tanks before leaning it out. After the motor started to lose power, the owner also stated that he thought that the air filter may not have done it's job properly, as he found dirt inside the carb neck (this engine was run on a dirt oval car). There may have been dirt inside the motor from the factory, as the owner never opened the engine when new to clean it out.

As far as I am concerned, case closed. This was NOT something that anyone should be worried about. I don't think the motor had anything to do with the issues seen.


Keep buying these little monsters. I saw a few of them run this weekend where BIG horsepower was really needed and they are REALLY fast.

Default 3pt vs. 5pt

Are the cases for the 3 port and 5 port the same? I'm thinking about picking a 3pt TZ up, but I really like the case and head for the 5 port and will go with the whole color scheme I have planned for the next car. If the internals are the same, should I be able to get the 5 port and swap the sleve? Or is it worth it
