Very nice....congratulations to Paolo and to Flavio Elias (BRA).

Actually, the fastest guy lap time wise was Burch (Maxpower), Salven was running away with it (Xceed), Mike TQ'ed and nearly won it (Picco) and Paolo did win it (Nova) so take your pick.

Fort Meyers is all about the driver and the car. Motor helps but it doesn't win anything on its own. They all spent so much time off the track that a ten year old OPS could have won with a clean race.

Congrats to Paolo, he deserved it.

Thanks Wingracer. Chassis is very important, but when you have a really good chassis then you NEED more power. Ft Myers needs a lot of torque and mid range, but you don't want to give up top end... I test my 2012 spec engines versus the Virtus and the Virtus had a lot more power, to the point that was able to pull a longer gear ratio. I did several test back to back with the same conditions.

I will personally only run Virtus this year. I have the ability to choose what to run and Virtus for me it's the way to go

Finally got to run the new engine this weekend and the virtus is more powerful than a keepon, its a noticable difference. Awesome engines!

To me it feels more punchy on the low end but the biggest difference is the midrange and top end, the one i have deffinately pulls harder than all 4 of my keep on engines. And i didnt have to lean as much to make run time. These are just my findings so far. ran it with a #8 plug 2015 pipe and the medium header, vp power master fuel with castor added.

For the past few years I have started to add castor to every gallon, for added security off my engines, it also makes them last longer and I can lean on them harder without hurting them. Most fuel can benefit from adding castor especially on road engines start with adding about 1 ounce of novarossi pure castor oil, im adding 2 at the moment and am having great results. Now the fuel im running under normal circumstances does not need any more oil but iam pretty hard on my engines and lean them really far.
