Default Novarossi 367

One of the better and more experience drivers at the our track bought a brand new Novarossi 367 and was very happy with it, but it lasted only a race. It wasn´t too hot but the bearing gave out.

I was thinking about getting one but would like to hear other stories about this engine before making a decision.

Got any?

Front or Rear bearing? Just curious...

That's an expensive bit of kit ruined by a ~$5 part!

Rear, the kit brings extra bearings, but normally you dont change the bearings after just the break in.

Cota,

So, I take it that the motor survived the premature failure of the rear bearing?

I guess he heard it and shut her down before any real damage could be done...

Talking

get the boca 14.5 x 26 mm steel 9 ball bearing as soon as you get any of the plus line of engines , i think that novarossi had a bad batch of bearings from the manufacturer of the bearings . cost for the bearing is about 25 - 30 $ and then you have to find somebody who is experienced to put it in for ya pm me if interested i am very good with engines and run houstons engine service here locally in the northwest
later , houston

novarossi is quite aware of the flame out issue and they are dealing with it for sure one way to deal with flameout issue is to add one more thin copper shim that comes with the engine to release some compression thats what we had to do to truhes engines to get em to run right , after we did that , they were too dam fast , seriously !!! another thing to do on those is to try a medium or hot turbo plug (turbo buttonhead part#nov28002)or try a medium or hot standard plug such as novarossi 6 or 5 plug , tames the beast down so it is useable power

You must have had some bad luck. I ran my Hot Mods 367 for a whole weekend on a rushed break-in without any flameout or other issues. Oh the joy of nitro motors.

I believe that Hot Mods replaces the bearing as one of the mods, our is standard not modified.

The 367 is a HEAP ! I have never seen an engine with so many issues !!
I know I have experienced it first hand! I love NovaRossi and run their engines faithfully ,but I won't give that 367 trash can room !!! It is as cantankerous as it can get ! I'm trying to figure one out as I type! Why is this thing eat plugs, have no bottom end, run hot ,then cold ?? I changed out the bearings and found the front one wasted and the rear one had shavings behind it as it was pressed into the block ???? Come on NovaRossi ? Maybe this is why Truhe runs P5's now ? What ever he runs I will tell you this , Is SPECIAL NovaRossi WELDS the back plates on so you can't see what has been done with out a serious bunch of trouble !!
Mike's engines were all welded shut this weekend at the Worlds warm up !

mikes engines are straight from italy , and they obviously dont want you to see what they are doin inside !!! i was dealing with his engines at the manufacturers cup in idaho , plus2 367's were running as you guys said =flameouts !! i tuned em in and they would run too f'in fast to drive and if i tuned em so they were driveable , they flamed headache to say the least . after the first qualifier i ended up letting him run one of my personal engines , plus21-5 ,and jim from fusion gave him a new plus 21-5k to run , mike was happy after we tuned those in , no flameouts after that i will figure out how to make the 367 engines run like they are suppose to the turbo button does make a HUGE difference novarossi part #nov28002, (there is suppose to be a new underhead #28001 but not out yet ) with either nova 6t, 5t plug or odo77t plug
later ,
monty
