Hopefully the port changes will help the fuel economy of the engine. I always found my T1201 very thirsty.

Just received my T1202. I'm hoping that is the case with fuel consumption. Unfortunately, our next race isn't until Nov 6th so I won't have a report until then.

Didn't actually see it but the parts diagram has it labeled as ceramic.

The engine was very fast at the WC in Gubbio this year but to make 5 minutes in qualification the engines looked to be running very lean but the engine seemed to take it well all week long.

Can you tell us how the fuel consumption was?

Engine has just about a gallon through the motor. I was able to make at least 5 min using 16% nitro with 9% oil. Temps in the 240-250s. Much better than the T1201.

Motor runs strong and has plenty of power. The run time seems good also.

Any updates on this engine? How's run time, power and reliability?

It's proving to be a very quick engine at my local track but the guys are having to run them really really lean to get a full 5 minutes qualifier in.
