Currently have a RB WS7III w/ 2045 and it's good but looking to switch it up.

Thanks for the input

Eric
as far as switching it up its a good reason but for smoothness it really doesnt get much smoother than that combo.

We were running a Nova 21-7 it was very very smooth ( tho i would call it a gutless wonder) , but if your into that kind of thing the 21-7 has the least amount of bottom end of any .21 I have run....

In my humble opinion, the RB C6 with the RB 2045 has the smoothest powerband I have ever experienced! It just had WAY more power than any noob should ever think of!

I have also heard that The Novarossi P5's were very smooth, so thats why I bought the JP B5-N (basically a modified P5)... Haven't tried it out yet do I dont know...

Best engine combo I have ever driven was a JX Ninja w/ Ninja 2043 pipe. Way smooth but also very powerfull top to bottom with 10+ minute runtimes. This was not my engine, but a freinds, I was totaly amazed at his engine, yet he said he had driven one even smoother and more powerful. A O.S. speed CEO modified with a O.S. 2060 pipe.

For what it's worth.....

Alright I'm going to go with the Novarossi Plus 4 with 9886 and 41021 header. I just confirmed AMAINHOBBIES.COM has the 2009 version with the larger rear bearing and turbo head button.

I have never owned a Novarossi only RB and GO so I'm not sure what plug to use for the turbo head button, any suggestions...

Thanks

I have been running the Trinity ExTech .21 with a ExTech 2013 pipe in my buggy and a ExTech .24 with a ExTech 2057 pipe in my truggy. Both are the race prep versions and they have started up and ran flawlessly since I bought them. They are both very smooth from bottom to top and have plenty of power. They start and idle every time and are easy to tune. Just another option for you
