Nope, I never even heard of the name "kondo" before. After seeing most of the mods of engines, I can say the best worked crankshaft is done by Murnan.

I'm already happy with stock .12tz.

I have fuel vendor who produces special for us and they are fresh (1day before the race) and from first grade materials that you can not find in regular brands. As a result I can cope with itallions easily with my bone stock .12TZ

Since it is season opening I'll buy new P/Ss or a new engine. My concern is mainly on price. No pun but Murnan seems to be little expensive for what I need.

thanks anyway

still question holds:Anyone who knows about kondo???

Nevermind, it's right in front of my face (crankshaft). Why is the 3 and 5 port the same price?

I just want to say that we had our first on-road race today and another racer and myself were both running this motor for the first time today and all I got to say is that this motor freakin rocks!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We had no probs keepin up with mod motors out there and best thing out of it all is that niether one of us ran over 215 and we both thoght that motor could be easily leaned out some more.

It is going to be a great summer I think.

Dont over lean it. The motor likes to run at 210-220.

Guess your right... Aight... Then I guess you should tune it for 280* to compensate for your ice cold weather.

I was wondering is there a plug temp that you guys prefer over the stock? I know that it comes with a 6. Some of the guys at the track say that they like the 7 a little better. I am running Byrons 30%

I usually go with the stock or equivalent ones. ie Avarage filaments.
Only for the extreme weather conditions, I change my plug to cold or hot.

Especially if you are at the track and he is there. He spent about 20 minutes on my car and loaned me proper tires (trued). Very nice man.

(And I don't have his engine)
