Let us know how it is. I was going to get one myself but got a sirio wcr instead. If it is as fast as the Italian ones I will buy one later.

How much did it run you?

you'll want to tune the highend mainly, use the low end to set your off the line launch you want it lean enough that it wont stall out while sitting there waiting for the race to start but not cause the temps to rise too much.

ya know I really suck at explaining these things anyone else wanna give it a shot....

no problem. I use 1/8 buggy filters and elbows on all my engines they are effective, cheap, and reusable. put a prefilter on them and they last a lot longer.

by the way what did the engine cost you?
