Rody,

Please explain what exactly you mean by "better" in regards to the Plus 3CT vs. the O.S. Speed and the STI. Also does any one have a concern about the durability/longevity of the ceramic bearing used in the 3CT.

Thanks.

plus 12 makes more power through the whole powerband..............best balance between torque and rpm..........

checking nova website i saw on the engine specs : "Crankshaft Type

i have used sirio sti and novarossi 12-3CT. i think the sirio is better.. i have done my own back to back testing with both engines and sirios have way more top end, have better fuel mileage and (IMO) look better.......... and a bonus is they have been proven to be fast at the worlds!

Hey, I bought a new Rex RT12 S51 engine made back in 2003. So I have some questions maybe someone can answer:

1) Anyone knows this engine? Is it any good?
2) With which novarossi engine can I exchange parts in case anything breaks?
3) Break in /default settings are not mentioned in the manual. help me?

Thanx a lot for your time

I won't comment your result because a sirio making more runtime than a novarossi is absolutelly impossible.....
I'm pretty sure your Plus12 wasn't tuned as good as the sirio......

regarding the WC.......3 novas in the main final WITHOUT any cooperation with Serpent, Mugen and Kyosho........

2nd best Qualifier with the most discredited car in the world........
3rd overall place with a driver that is not even the most famous in his country........

I forgot to mention the European Championship at Serpent track racing against the ultrafast 720s...........again with the most discredited car in the world...........

the plus12 is race proven.........

just curiosity, which pipe/header combo are you using with the plus12?

Default Mugen MR12

I was wondering if anyone knows which Novarossi the Mugen MR12 was based on? Like I've heard the Mugen X12 is the same as a NS3.
