    Default Rb x10

    Hi

    Just wanted to know if anyone is running one of these RB engines and what the run times are like?

    I'd say that runtime is down to throttle control mainly. Most engines are the same, If you are heavy handed, you'd proably pit at 7.30 - 8 mins, if your smooth I'd say 9-9.30 depending on the track.

    Lots being said about 13 min runtime etc, take it with a pinch of salt. They may do 13 minutes, but most will pit earlier and not risk it. I run a B9 and it's ballistic. I could probably eak out 11 mins, but always come in around the 8 - 8.30 to be safe.

    Having had a few different brands of engine I'd say that RB and OS are by far the easiest to tune.

    yup

    but a flipfly says its down to your thumbs, exponential and other bits.

    I ran my technopower B01 at wakefield at the weekend and came off with just under 1/4 of a tank after 6.5 mins, geared the engine up from a 16 tooth clutch bell to a 17 as it was revving out slightly down the straight, also went from x2 plastic + x1 alloy on the clutch to x1 plastic + x2 alloy to compensate for the gearing change.

    came off with just under 1/2 a tank and did another lap!!!

    leaned 5 mins for the 20 min final, came in at 9mins, splash @ 18 mins and came off with 1/2 tank.

    temping at 230 in the sun, happy days


    so many variants, however i thought the X10 was good on juice overall.
