Hi all
Been looking through some old literature and noticed that the RC is quoted with a few more BHP than the Nordwest, is that right? If so where does it come from? Just curious, Cheers

Hi

How Long have you got?

Have a look again The RCR 1991, has more power, different carb and airbox arrangement.

Better Air Flow, Bigger Jets, More Fuel, Bigger Bang, More Power.

That's about it I believe

Happy to talk more if you like.

Hi, Zac may remember as he helped me a lot when resurrecting my early RC. It had been fitted with the 3omm carb and jets at some point in its life. It smoked like a chimney! After a lot of thought I managed to obtain jets close to those specced for the 27 mm carb and dropped them into the 30 which resulted in far better running, increased fuel economy and absolutely no smoke at all. Running like a dream after scrating my head for months,
