Talking NTC3 Engine and Hopup recommendations

I'm thinking about purchasing a novarossi RS12S3 for an NTC3 Rear kit I'm going to buy. Does anyone know a good online store that sells it?

Also, are there any alternatives that have better sales distribution and equal or better performance? I'm looking to spend somewhere under $250 for it. ROAR legal would be preferred.

I'm also planning on getting the RDlogics NTC3 pipe.

Any other suggestions or recommended hopups are welcome!

Also, what do you guys think about the Nova Rossi Top TN S1 and the RS 12 S1? I can purchase the RS 12 S1 for just over $200 and the TOP TN for much less. Anyone have experience with these?

Don't get the rs12, its a great motor but its being distributed by trinity now so you will get ripped off. Get a mugen mr-12 or nova s3. The mr-12 is the same as the rs-12, the new s3 is kicked up a notch with a raised exhaust port, increased crank timing, and lightweight piston. Both a are roar legal and expect to pay around $160 for the mr-12 and $200 for the s3.

Good luck.

Dan doesn't publish his prices, but I can vouch for his service and pricing. He sells the TOP line of Novarossi engines, and his prices are excellent!
