My friend had tested the ZAC TZ 3 Port yesterday. I must say this engine is a lot better than the standard TZ but needs higher nitro content to get it's maximum power out.

So i have a TZ 3p and it has been running great, however the track that i run on is small so i have never really streched it legs, so my friend who has a radar gun and i tested it in my mtx3 the other day, When i thought the motor was about to top out RPM it just kept going, needless to say even with my gearing for a very small track the car still hit 56mph, i just couldnt beleave how much more top end there was that i have never used.

Run a P8 plug and see if the plug goes bad. I have friend's that run 40% and there are no problem's at all. You should be alright because i removed the .o1 shim from mine on 30% it power went up, with no problem. The piston top was as shiny as new after 1/2 gallon's.

I just got a sweet deal on the OS 12TZ 5 port. Anyone run it against the regular 3 port? I ran against the 5 port with my Mugen X12, and I was very impressed with the 5 port. Hopefully I'll get it by next week.

how long is this motor going to last? i'm trying to kill it now and it wont let go

i run 30% with the outlaw shark pipe and its lean as hell (almost cutting out ) i put in the smallest gearing and just reved the crap out of it over 15 netball courts. it hits full rpm/top speed over 2 of the side by side i ran 4 tanks through it like that and it only gets stronger after 16 litres.still idles nice and has heaps of torque

i would have gone through 6 jp's by now.
