Yes they will fit. They aren't of the same quality obviously, but they will fit.

Yes they do. But the finishing on the Axe is the worst. The Axe and Go Tech rods are much more chunky and they don't spool up as fast compared to Nova's own conrods. The Nova's are much much more lighter too...

yup it will fit done it before. But it will never be thesame engine but it will still get you around the tracks with no problem. Me I did not feel the difference cause I am slow. But for others who knows the engine says it lost some of the punch. I was argueing could not be caused by the rod maybe the bearing or something.

I even used the whole PSR of Go seven port for my nova 7 bt. Engine still runs but eats plugs a lot. They are saying that the go techs piston is flat while the original 7bt is a little convex. Extra shimming did the trick.
