Do you think anyone would notice if I put that head on my Flash Rally?

You're telling me Andy! This old man has some scoots! I have to chase him around every weekend Best part is he and I are running the same motors this year, to include that very nice looking ISON, so I am all kinds of screwed haha. I think you'll like that ISON, I have one and so does Gus we are happy and can't wait to get them broken in!

I have a different monster for LA though. Check out that Flash Rally PT. Oh man is this thing awesome. If I close my eyes and think about the perfect high end GT motor the new Novarossi Flash PT is exactly what I see.

Really? I don't remember at all captain Spooky........Since I don't remember then I have to disagree with you statement. The only thing I can recall was every time you whipped my butt on the track I still had a blast for the weekend .

Here are a few you may want to check out too. I'm a Novarossi fanatic and have ran a few RBs in the past. Nothing on the RBs but they don't stack up to the quality of a Novarossi in my opinion.

I know a few guys locally that are running this 7 port Novarossi called the R7. Really solid engine that lasts for seasons. Great all around GT motor.
http://www.serpentamerica.com/shop/p...&cat=89&page=1

Another great choice would be the Kappo Rally. Again last long time and performs really well. I know a few more that are very happy with these.
http://www.serpentamerica.com/shop/p...&cat=82&page=1

The Novarossi motor that is designed to meet the ROAR GT rules is the ISON GT. I haven't run it yet just waiting on some snow to clear before I get to break her in. This motor looks to be solid and a 5 port has a nice balance between torque to top end. I guess it is supposed to be based off of one of my favorite GT motors the N21-5T. The 5T was probably the best $200 you could spend on a GT for a good while and still holds its own. The upgrades to the ISON make it that much more appealing!
http://www.serpentamerica.com/shop/p...cat=112&page=1

They are a bit more but you definitely get what you pay for with Novarossi motors. Nothing poor to say about RBs in my experience they just haven't impressed me as much as the Novas.

I would recommend the OFNA 086 combo as a cheaper but solid pipe for any of the motors we are talking about.

RB's are made from Novarossi parts...
