im thinking about getting the platinum for my nxt engine, or a novarossi.. Thing is, i get 10 plus min with my cvr, and im never under powered, most of the time our tracks are groove so i can always put the power down, anyone that ran a cvr have a honest opinion on what runs at least as good as a cvr does for $150 or less??

Man, I would never go over $150, and thats a lot for me to spend on a .12, when you can get a .21 that is competitive like a novarossi bf21 for $175.. Prices for these small mills is getting ridiculous

If you need more top end, go up a tooth on the clutch bell or go to a smaller spur. Races aren't won in the straights.

Saw your other post. The .12 TZ is just a ridiculous amount of engine in a gas truck. I have 2 of them, came with the car when I bought it. It's a great engine, puts out a ton of power, good fuel mileage, and the power delivery is pretty smooth considering. But, you can't ever use all the power unless you're racing on concrete. I don't think I've ever wound mine all the way out on the track. You'd be spending $200 on power you can't put to the ground.
