I think it's a stock 21-4C Team W/9901SS pipe and 41021 header. We will never fully know. The back plate is riveted shut from what I understand.

This is "correct" on paper this is all we'll ever know.

What Novarossi actually has inside...only they know

The 4C and 4C Team both get 11+ mins of runtime easily under the proper conditions.

Agreed! It's a "stock" novarossi factory special. Or I mean plus 4.

To tell you the truth, I doubt Drake himself knows what is inside it.

From what i've heard from alot of people, that motor is not sold to the public. Novarossi made that motor specially for him and him only. Just from what i've heard, he doesn't even know whats inside the motor. Its sealed shut. Also, yes he can get 15 minutes on a tank of fuel! thats crazy!!!

There are rumours that he ran up to 15 minutes on one tank actualy.
I myself find that slightly hard to believe but you never know I guess :P

like i said , there is much more than just whats inside the engine and dont listen to all the rumors you hear

15 min runtimes on indoor track is not unheard of

Watch the US Nationals video from 2009. You tell me at what time Drake's last pit stop was and how many minutes until the end.

Ridiculous!
