CB, your Siim's actually have the 359 head button if its turbo with o-ring. Good looking engines based on where & what they come with IMO.

yes, true that, i am a novarossi fanboy, tried cobra, but still prefer my nova's. I get a bit impatient tho, so far ,after 2.5 tanks in my X2, i thought stuff it, and started racing my new plus 4. im not too worried, if it wears out too soon, ill buy the parts needed break it in properly then get it modded.might sound like its a bit like going the long way about it, but i want to see what its like stock first. so far so good

Hmmmm, that could be right, but I know it is the special one with the oring around it.

They are extremely nice engines

Hahahaha! I have been in this hobby for 20 years and have done a lot of research before importing each and every product to ensure that it works and that I am selling them for a screaming deal.

For newer hobbyists, I always recommend the Dynamite/Sportwerks/SH lines of engines. They run very well, provide plenty of power, and will not break the bank if you make a mistake and toast one(which will happen).

you wont have to change the bearings out on a speed in 2 gallons of fuel, i have personally seen them go around 10 gallons with the stock bearings

I guess I must be one of the lucky ones..I have bought 2 used motors in the past year, both were "claimed" to have only had 1 to 1 1/2 gallons through them, when I got both motors I did tear them both apart and both showed minimum wear..One was a Hot Mod P5/N Rex and the Other is a Novarossi Plus 21-7BT..both are ballistic..especially the Novarossi, I have 10 gallons through it now and it's stronger now than when i bought it, I have about 6 gallons through the Rex and it's fast..still runs great..But it is a "crap shoot" I rate it about the same as buying a used electric motor....I did pay a bit for the Nova ($200)..but I do know the person who I bought it from, The Rex I paid $90 shipped..and it's worth every penny..definitely faster than any GO .21..

GRP is made by GRP not trinity nor Sirio. They're a single engine manufacturer.

Trinity engines are made by Sirio.
