Got parts on the way, thanks Schrijver!!!!

The button isn't a big deal to find, a few places had them in stock. Dennis doesn't keep parts in stock. I originally was looking for places outside of the US for parts, anyway. It's just my list of overseas engine suppliers is very limited. I just wanted to find a place that had both in stock so I could buy some spares. This works out awesome... I have an additional place on my list to buy Novarossi parts, and I don't have to use a US company.

Does anyone know if there is a place selling the RR12L3 in North America?
I know rc-mushroom has them in HK.

Default ns15s5

Have anybody try a nova rossi ns15s5 in a 200mm car yet ?

Running a team magic e class with the combination of a rr12l5 and a 7.0 mm outlaw team magic pipe and manifold. Was thinking of a ns15s5, but would like some users with experiences in a 200mm car.

By the way, could anyone out there can tell me what pipe would be suitable for the rr12l5 ?


thanks

I too found the NS12L3A1. It seems to be the model Trinity sells, I dont think they made a change to the motor. I am still awaiting delivery for mine. I too would like to know what the A1 stands for. I paid ~$290 for mine on TowerHobbies, but you need to search for NS12L3A1 or it will be difficult to find. I am sure this hase been asked before, but I am rather short on time. Running in this motor, I have ordered a run in bench, and I would like to know the mixtures I should use, some say SUPER RICH, with the carb at WOT just to keep her idling, some say slightly rich and idling, many conflicts...

Hi there, can anyone tell me what the difference is between the NS12L3 and the RR12L3. Our tracks will not let you run with a motor with a turbo plug or 5 ports. so is the RR12L3 race legal for South Africa?

The RR12L3 is a 3 port engine (longstroke one). Comes with a turbo button, but much probably could be swapped for a normal one without much problem.

Your NS12S3A1 much probably differs from the plain NS12S3 on the cooling heads. Had other Nova engine that carried the A1 suffix and are variations from the plain model - in other engines, like the RX21-R1WCA1 used an aluminium carburetor without adjustable spraybar, probably your engine will carry the tall cooling head (11 fins vs. the stock one who has 9 cooling fins).

I don't know of the existance of a NS12L3, you mean NS12S3.

If that is the case, NS12S3 is a 3 port turbo engine with 14.00mm stroke and 13.80mm bore and 1.52 hp at 41,000 rpm. which would qualify as almost as a short stroke or square engine.
On the other hand you have the RR12L3 with 3 ports turbo but with 14.25mm strke and 13.70mm bore and the same 1.52 hp at 41,000 rpm, which would qualify as a long stroke engine compared to the NS12S3.
So in practical langauage NS12S3 must be better at mid to top end and the RRL3 must be better at low to mid end, because even though they deliver same HP's, they must deliver them at different powerband.
As I recall the RRL3 is advertised as a good engine for short technical tracks.
In any of the cases you should order a separate Std. plug headbutton if they don't allow you to use turbo plugs.Or if you have and old Nova based engine with std. plug head button you can use it on the NS12S3, but it won't fit the RRL3.

It's my understanding (several engine modders told me this) that the A1 designation has something to do with a bigger crank. I'm not sure exactly which part is bigger (I assume the bearing journals), but was told that the "non-A1" model has a tendancy to break the cranks.

THe NS12S3, can be either a turbo, or non turbo. The A1 has a different crank.
