Get you're self a Nova P5XL from Houston (above) and if you want to go faster, have Monty work his magic on it for you

You'll be ripping down the straight-away

Anyway considering that RB thinks it's safe to make their engines in Taiwan (K9) why would the Taiwan based ones be any worse ? For sure if you don't know what to do then there might be issues but it's not directly related to materials as they are available around the world.

Like materials may be available around the world but generally Taiwan doesn't buy them. The difference in metal quality between european and Taiwanese engines has long been proven. Italian engines last longer than Asian engines every single time. RB has taken a big risk with their reputation.

Taiwanese engines have gotten better in the last 5 years but their prices have come up while the Euros have somehow kept their prices down. It's still a no-brainer to me. Buy an Italian made engine.

Yea, for under 200.00 it's very tempting. I will probably get one for s@#$s and grins. I do love my Nova Plus 4 though.

we get 7 or 8 in a buggy and 8 in truggy, we run JP3 in truggy and an RB pipe in buggy. the only reason we dont run the RB pipe in truggy is because its to long but that engine loves that pipe.

I'am looking to put a Jammin JPX 21 in my X2 CRT truggy, and i have the JP3 pipe now. You say that the RB pipe is better with this engine??? But too long to put it in a truggy I don't understand why? a truggy platform is longer than a buggy one, no??
And wich RB pipe you suggest?

Thank you!

I don't know if i'll take a stock JPX21 or a moded one.......Because i've always ran .28 engine in my truggy, and i'am scared to not have enough power with this .21

This statement is based on what ?? You know what each mfg uses or ??

Anyway it's a subjective thing, if one wants to use Nova and pay for then he does
