Well another desition to make ... WHICH ENGINE TO USE ? ...
Im tight on budget and i need a new engine for the preworlds ... right now im runing a Novamega SX12 RE EV1 engine and just have about 2 races and 5 practices ... but im planning to train hard for 3 complete weekends so im thinking on buyiong a new engine for the preworlds ... but looking on not spending too much money and getting a decent engine ... the track where the preworlds and worlds will be running at need a good torque engine cause it have a couple of up-hill sections (up and downhill curves and one uphill straight if i rmember right) ... im attaching here some links of track pictures (the track its on construction and maybe its ready for practice on the first week of february) ...
Here you can see the 4 level layout of the track :
Now my alternatives are (this is based on my dealser cause here in southamerica we dont have access to EVERY engine brand, and rossis are too expensives in brazil so mainly i have access to the engines sold by my 2 dealer in Chile and Brazil - try to not mention other engines cause this are the only competition engine i have access to) :
1.- Novamega SX12 RE EV1 (same engine im running right now)
2.- Novamega SX12 RE EV1 TURBO (now IFMAR allow Turbo Engines but stays on 3 ports, this is not the 2003 "SS" one that michale salven used on his last european big race, its the prior model)
3.- OS .12 TR
4.- OS .12 TR Turbo
5.- Team Orion Wasp .12 Turbo
6.- Trinity XP-12 .12 Picco Turbo Touring Re Exhaust Slide
7.- HPI Nitro Star .12R XS Engine (the new nova-base-i-think engine from HPI)
8.- Trinity Sirio .12 Sandard Racing Engine SG Style Crank
9.- Trinity Nova Rossi Black Pixi .12 SG Rear Exhaust ROAR
10.- Trinity Nova Rossi .12 Slide Carb SG Shaft (NS1)
I think the IFMAR legals and good ones are the numbers :
- 6 (but i never owned a picco engine)
- 4 (i saw an OS .12 TR Turbo running and it went just up with the italians)
- 2 (i know the non turbo version and its great)
So guys ... i need some help here ...
cya and as always ... THANKS A LOT !!! ...
