Default Double fuel intake to solve power issue in corners

Hey people at the track 1/10 nitro .12 novarossi PT lately I have noticed that turning left car has less power than going right. I figured it out as I like going out of chicanes with lots of power and in left corners car widen up and engines riches up a bit. I know it's a GeForce/ inertia. Would a double feed system help like this and is it comparable with nova engines?

sound more like something is bogging it down turning left. like something is binding. I could be way off but that's the first thing I would look into myself.

The funny thing is that these solutions come and go.... And not everyone are using them.

I have seen this on tank caps already 15 years ago and on engines it was with the Orion CRF Wasp.

If you are not using a one piece engine mount it is wise to check the 2 mounts and make them flat when mounted on the engine. If they are not equal there is already some force on the crankcase and the flex in the chassis can enlargen that force giving a load on the crankshaft giving several kind of problems.

When using a fuel filter it is wise to check houw it is mounted and give it a try without it.

try adding some length to the fuel line, if it keeps doing it, then it's not the issue.
