yay!!! i got it to start without a problem! i purchased new fuel, new(hotter) glow plugs, and a new glow driver. i think because i had a cold plug in the engine it wouldn't get hot enough to ignite the fuel. plus, i think the fuel itself might be a little worn out. getting a better glow driver, one that will last all day, will certainly help too. obviously i heated up the engine with a hairdryer, which helped tremendously.

We run 30% White Lightning - the heads are shimmed between .023 to .027. Depends on humidity and altitude. We also use the 4 dot High Compression Nova Rossi head - I believe RB has it I don't know the P/N. Where are you running the motor?

Rich, I live in north east Ohio, Not to far from the track in Toledo. The next race will be the winter nats, If my son decides to go, he is the one who races the 05 Evolva. We have in the past run novarossi base motors. Looking to try the RB motors this year and have better luck with this engine. You talk very highly of RB engines and you and Scott seem to have very good success with this motor.This is why I'm asking so many Questions about the Rb 1005-R/C motors and hoping to finally learn something worth while. Thanks, Mike

Default rody v12

hi guys,

i'm looking to get an Rb v12 rody.
deciding btw the 3port or 5port.
which wld give a better bottom end?
i'm guessing the 3port as a 5port = higher top-end right?
i need more punch out of corners as thr is only one long straight at my track.
thanks in advance!

If you go with the three port, you will be legal, if that is an issue. To get the punch out of the corners, you need to get the clutch dialed-in and get the motor's low end needle tuned correctly.

thanks for the info rc racing dude.
for me, 3port or 5port doesn't matter. no legality issues here.
i was thinking that in general, 3port engines has better low-end and 5port ones has more top-end.
even when i looked at the rb website, the 3port rody has more torque than the 5port rody.
but i guess that the 5port will have more power overall...

It should be just as good as new. Just make sure the crank pin is still round & the right size. If it's not replace the crank too or you may find your engine having a midlife crisis.

Default RB pipes

Any one using the .12 inline pipes from RB? How are they compared to the other pipes you have used? I'm thinking of going with the MFG recommendations for my V12 5 port & my V12 rody. Would love some feedback on this. Thanx
