Thank you for everyone who has replied and helped me narrow engine choice down.
I am currently run on two tracks in Melbourne. One track they allow turbo engines, and the other no turbo engines allowed.
Can people tell if I buy the:
JP Modified - Novarossi T5S1 5 Ports .12 Turbo Engine ($350.00)
1).Can I buy something so I can modify so it will not use the turbo on the other track. I have heard rumors about a turbo button that turns it or off.
2). If it is a good engine or not?
I am currently running a JP Black Novarossi S1. And I have about 1/2 year experience in nitro.
Thanks for you help
First, the simple fix:
What you can do is buy a Non-Turbo Head Button which
accomodates the regular Glow Plug..
Now for the part that sucks:
It is safe to assume that the other track follows sanctioned
guidelines which may be the reason for them not allowing Turbo
Plugs. Having said that, please note that the 5 Port motors
are Non-Legal motors which may likewise not be permitted
to be used on that same track, regardless of it having a
Non-Turbo Button. Furthermore, this is also the same reason
why the 5 port motors normally come with a Turbo Button to
begin with, when purchased Brand New.
But yes, the JP Modified - Novarossi T5S1 5 Ports .12
Turbo Engine is a good motor. Although, I personally think
the price you have for it is too much..
Hope this helps
