I am not saying this is the right thing to do, or promoting the idea.

(BUT IT WORKS)

So I took a worn pistion,rod and pin out of a v-spec and test fit into a worn rg sleeve, I Found that there was a super tight fit that was going to need some breaking in. Test fit rod on crank pin, again I found a very nice fit.
Last I check the rod specs against rg. Every thing is checking out!!!
So what I have is a rg case,bearings,head,carb, back plate and crank with v-spec pistin,rod and pin. ( note,I was using a michromitter for checking sizes) Broke in engine with help of friend,vice,heat gun,oil and 18v drill. (first tryed in buggy but starter box would not turn it)

I have ran 5 tanks through it so far. Runs really well. Pinch is better than great. I am still testing this combo I may have to lose the head shim.
I have ran it at full speed already even though its breaking in. I will be at dukes this weekend running it non stop, or till it blows.

So I headed to the track with a gallon of 30% heli fuel thats been in my basement for like 3 or 4 years. Engine ran perfect with lots of power. Actaully got a few comments on how fast it was. Just over a half gallon through it now,still tons of pinch. I was running it around 280. Engine. Wow that heli fuel made a lot of smoke. felt like I was flying a plain with the smoke on.

Duuuude!!!! You are the bomb. I'm curious about doing some playing myself. You know toying with the timing and such on a say....STS or something. Should have my C6 this week. Swint, I need an opinion.....Should I have the C6 modded from RBMods or should I send out a STS, VG, 3Port B3 (Werks) or something. Then we could follow suit (Somewhat copy) on other engines.

I would vote for the sts, Though I have not seen one run that I know of. The c6 is already mental and you can always try the turbo button. The werks engines have that funky exaust I do not care for. That vgs kinda wierd.
My new novaroosi p5x will be here any day.

Hi all, Just wanted to show ya this person. Looks like some pretty exteme mods to me. I'm bidding on a os rg done by them. hope to get it to see how it runs. www.powerhousercperformance.com Theres a pic of a RG sleve there someplace, half the thing is ground away. if it works i'm gonna copy it in my good RG i have now. Hope to see ya all out at dukes, hopefully some other options for racing open up. Later Adam
