Default V-spec slide boot

Has anyone tried the Novarossi slide boots on the vspec? I saw someone using one and they seemed like they were thicker material and not as wide. I have been have problems with going thought the o.s. boots. Has any one tried this yet?

I ripped the stock boot that came on my RB being an idiot. I was only able to find a nova boot in my tool box. It works perfectly, and it does seem to be thicker and a lil bit more durable.

The only difference in most boots is some have 3 accordian folds and others have 4. I ripped the boot on my OS many times and have replaced it with Noba boots, HPI boots and even a boot from a stock 4.6 assoc engine. Just slime the needled up and where it fits into the groove and you will be fine with just about any of them.

no wonder a nova boot will work on an RB. the carb is expactly the same! (RB is manufactured my novarossi)

The vspec boot seems thicker on the carb end. I would not recommend using one from a different motor, I would get a new OS one. there like 6 bucks...

Hmmm... I didn't know that, I thought they were competitors. Lol

The Nova boot fits the OS carbs fine.

As for RB, most of the engines have Novarossi carbs on them. As for onroad, I believe they use Sirio carbs.

For the most part a block, sleave, crank, from a RB motor is casted/created by novarossi specifically for RB then RB does their own thing. Regardless if the Nova cover fits tight then why not? it doesnt change the way the carb works, just keeps it clean.

you mean my boot jim?? hahaha, he is right this new boot is much better and much tougher than the o.s. one. I ripped my first os one before I even started the mill, you can rip them just by lookin at em. Ive also heard the VG boots are better if the speed boot is not available.
