You can get O'donnell .12 heads at Nitrohouse.com. They are $15.95 plus shipping which is the cheapest place I have found.

Default Novarossi Drake Edition

Aaron:

Do you know who has piston and sleeves for the Novarossi Drake Edition? I have 2 motors that are ready for rebuilds and it seems parts for that engine have disappeared. Also, can I get the part number for that motor ?

Thanks

If the P/S are different from the normal Cx12 then you are probably SOL. Trinity and Nova Rossi did not get along so they went there separate ways. As a result the parts will be close to impossible to fine. Normal Cx12 parts should fit in the case though and will be better then nothing. This is the reason Drake runs the Sirio motor. The Nova Rossi is no longer Trinity!

I do not have any experience with Sirio motors. I do not know anyone that runs them other then Aaron. I have only heard good things about Sirio motors though.

Todd - Casper hit the nail on the head.

Sofast-NT - The dogbones are new and no longer use yokes (that's good..I broke them like crazy landing on power haha).

The Sirio Evo 2 is a great engine; it's manageable and fast.

i really gotta check for extra pages in the thread before i post lol thanks to toddz and jbrow for the links to nitrohouse. for 16 bucks im on that like white on rice! i dont really need it, but i spend more than that in 2 days at mcdonalds so why not lol

mafia, your first outing i wouldnt worry about your axles. just your pride just show up early, practice until you think you might just be sick of it by the time the race starts, and stay off the pipe hehe my first time out i cartwheeled all by myself, from hitting the pipe. took me out of the race. the worst part was, i was all alone on the back straight when i piped LOL

I would not worry too much about the yoks. You need power like Aaron before you can worry about that! I have only broken one yoke in the last 4 years and it happend to be on my stock 2wd! This is no the weakest link of the car so you should not worry too much. You need to try and break a yok but Aaron seems to be good at it. I am looking forward to seeing these new axles. The Losi universal works awsome so it will be interesting to see what they came up with this time.

beetlebz-- Thanks!

The new dogbones are almost similar to a CVD joint..you'll see what I mean.

The bones themselves are longer in order to maintain consistent dogbone plunge into the outdrive..and they work well .

I am the only person who has had a consistent problem breaking yokes that I know of..heck, I'm one of very few to break the white ones! I guess that what happens when you combine a CRAZY engine with a tendency to land off of a jump full-punch.

Since everyone liked the plastic yokes better then the CVD on the gas truck (and the Bk2 and MF2 for that matter) I wonder why Losi is going back to a CVD type joint? I would think the little extra give would be best for Gas anyway with the rough track conditions. I suppose I will just need to try out the new bones myself. Also longer bones for less plunge is opposite what they did for the GenII tranny?!?!?!
