I do not have problem with 18TZ, just not so good on 200mm TC and a little bit short on 75cc tank....but on my outlaw 835, that should be a perfect fit.

See ya at Tinley in 2 weeks.............are you the same RAY that used to work at Al's over at Elmhurst?

You said it was a FW05RR and G4

The FW05RR doesnt have the best top end without gearing it right these have to be taken into account. The FW05RR is made for small - med tracks.

Yes...but for club racing, hardly you can find anyone will use it.....again, club racing does not do a lot of those after race inspection....if they do, they have to race till MONDAY.

I think it is perfect on 235 like 835 Impact Neo Advance..........However, I think it is only limited to SERPENT 235mm only cause Serpent does have a special small block engine mount designed for Impact and 835. item # 808381

The 18TZ is on my Impulse Pro with VDS conversion..........so, I expect another "overpowering"effect on the 200mm chassis, but I hope the GTP rear bridge and the Lola VDS body will generate enough downforce to keep the car down on the road, but I cannot tell untill I get to Tinley and run it.....

My other plan is running it on the 235mm Impact........I still believe that is the perfect chassis for the 18TZ...and I would not surprise to see that engine will run better then other big block 15 engine on the same car.....at least, I have the modded EVO4 7 ports Michael Salven engine to compare.
