Default Which one Rb B9 Or nova rossi +4

As the title says which one at the moment i have a grp 21 tuned which has done a season with only conrod and bearing change still has compression.But want a spare for away racing and one for local.But cannot choose which one find the grp has plenty of power and runtime,I am a very smooth driver as i race 1/12th during the winter so i yend to drive my buggy like a on road car (losi 2.0) probably no the way to drive but only my second season.
Thanks

Well you know quality will be the same because RB's are made by nova, so that is one factor you know. As for the engine, the plus 4 is great. It is a very smooth engine and gets good fuel milage. The RB probably makes more power, but won't be as smooth or get as good fuel milage. So it all comes down to what you are looking for.

one thing i notice about elect driver's is they seem to want a stroger engine vs a super smooth one, there control helps maintain a smooth feel regardless of the power of the engine, but it is there when they want it, this is only what i have noticed.

The Plus 4 is a great motor for sure, smoother on bottom vs alot of other engine's, but may feel like what your use to in elect racing, it does boast awesome runtimes and great overall power down low and on the top side. I havn't ran the RB you mentioned so i can't offer any advice on that, but from novarossi there are a few good choices other than the Plus 4, your tack size and surface should also be taken into consideration.

The B9 is the new C6bb. I haven't run it either I was just going by the older C6. It could be different but I am willing to bet it is almost exactly the same as the C6.

well i can say this, the C6 seem's to be a friendly buggy engine from what i am seeing, the Toro and FMS, not so friendly a smooth driver would be very fast with a toro or even fms in buggy

+1 The dynamite pipes are very good(hard coated-reinforced stinger) and cheap. I would go this way over the novarossi brand pipes. They have the same tune as the nova pipes but are much more durable and half the price.
