No, I am staying with the AE pipe. It's nice, a good all round pipe. The new Reedy pipes will be out soon so I might pick them up and give them a try (slated for Feb release)

Jordan it not dimples it's completely different.

Fluting the crankshaft is very important as well. It allows the mixture to be able to roll off the end of the crank without creating a lot of turbulence and fuel puddling in the bore of the crank.

The last process I incorporate that no one else does is crank turbo porting. Turboing the crank is the process of cutting the counter weight to form blades, similar to those found on a compressor wheel in a single stage turbine engine. The blades take the atomized mixture in the bottom of the case, compress it, and pressurize the intake ports so the fresh charge is always pressurized, atomized and suspended at the pistonís edge versus down inside the case. This process increases the fill compression percentage and decreases fill time allowing you to alter cylinder intake and exhaust port timing to maximize engine performance for any application

I've received special privileges to inside information and have been creating a video for Mark's new website (under construction) documenting all of his Modification processes. Ive been in contact with Mark for several weeks and have receiving step by step instructions of his own descriptions on his Turbo Porting, Crankshaft Fluting, Crankshaft Intake Timing, Intake and Exhaust Port Timing and Scavaging. His specialty is Nova Rossi Engines and has modded others as well for guys all over the States. Even a couple of Xray America Team Drivers have used engines with his mods.

Thanks Calvin! For those of you who don't know him, he has incredible dedication to this hobby and makes some of the best videos I have ever seen in this sport. He is doing a video for me as we speak and from the clips I have seen so far, it will be very cool to watch. For those of you who don't know who I am, my name is Mark Smith and I live in Buffalo, NY. I do my best to participate in local racing and I try to attend as many GLORCS races as possible. Glenwood RC is my home track. As Calvin has mentioned, I am a Novarossi dealer and will be carrying all the newest engine lines and will be selling them stock or modified. I will sell them for the best competative prices possible. I am also a TKO ceramic bearing dealer so those are available at your request. I also sell nitro engine pre heaters that will preheat the engine to about 180-200 degrees before start up. I am in the process of rebuilding my website and will have new pictures, descriptions and products available and also a store where you can purchase engines, pipes and accessories. You will also be able to build a modified engine and choose what model engine, level of modifications, recommended pipes, plugs, bearings etc. If anyone has any questions, feel free to pm or email me through my site @ Thanks Calvin for all that you are doing! Can't wait for the video and I have a little something something for you when I build your engine.
