Default PLEEZE help this dude!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been ALL OVER RCTECH for a while now and I keep seeing this poor guy asking, begging, pleading anyone to answer his ONE and (only) question.

You read one thread-there he is!

you read the next thread-there he is again, with the same dam#
Question! He goes by // the winner//, and all he wants to know is do Novarossi engines have flame-out issues, or as he puts it;

"I keep read for flame outs.....what I must pay attention?"


If you help him, let me know here, so I can sleep soundly.

Any engine that isn't tuned properly will have flame out issues.

Any engine that isn't broken in will have flame out issues.

Any engine with the wrong glowplug selection will have flameout issues.

Any engine that is not mechanically sound will have flameout issues. A worn conrod especially will cause that.

I dont run them but I have in the past and I seriously dont think they have a flame out issue.. I know if its is improperly tuned it can have a flame out issue and Novas dont really have the largest tuning window so maybe thats the problem...
I have only ran one engine that had mystery flame outs and that was a GRP
but I think I have ran 3 different novas and had no issues.

I run Nova 3ports, P5's and Toro Nero's. I've run P3, P4, and 97T plugs, Byrons 25%, Rocket Science, O'donnell fuels............ The only time I've flamed out is after losing my air filter and eating dirt. Ran other motors in the past with the same results. Keep your motor tight, clean and don't let dirt in it and you won't flame out. IMO Nova's are the only way to go. Jim and Chris at Fusion Motorsports will do whatever it takes to keep you running. First class in my book.

Default NovaRossi rookie

Thanx 4 al the help guys, I'll pm "the winner" & tell him to read this thread.

I don't know why I give a sh!+, it just that the guy is all over the place in a panic, asking about Novas flameouts.

In all honesty though, I've never owned a Rossi either, but I've got a 4 tank plus.28, and a 1 gallon fms.21, I'm buying cheap from a couple of friends who are goin' batt. power, and it's nice to know they are reliable engines.

+1, NR plugs are terrible. Great motors are getting a bad name due to sub-par glow plugs. Throw an Odonnell in there and your flame out problem will disappear.
