I will normally clean my airfilters about 4 times before throwing away, sometimes less if they look dodgey. as long as you clean it from the inside out its fine as it wont push the dust into airfilter, i use denatured alcohol or petrol to clean my airfilters.

Provok, I don't pay 5 dollars for a filter. I don't use a filter one race and throw it away i throw them away when they are too dirty for my liking I don't wash them and use them agen. If you want my old filters shore show me the money and ill send them to you not a prob at all. At racing fuel did have some probs at first due to the oil mixture used causeing the engines inturnals to gum up. The oil type and mixture has now been changed and the old prob is not a prob any more and for one they no longer use the metal tin container they havent used them for a very long time. Do as you wish I'm not telling how or what to use and how to run your engines. Thats totaly up to you Best Regards Jeremy.

A novarossi should last 8 to 10 gallons of fuel befor the piston and niner need to be replaced. Normaly to make an engine last that long you need to check the conrod and bearing for excess play and ware. Some people may think i'm running my engines ritch but i ashore you there not ritch or lean. There is a limet to paformance I constantly see people push engines well beyond its intended paformance boundres. All i can say is you should be able to get 10 gallons of fuel in run time from a novarossi piston and lniner and ruffly 3 maby 4 rod and bearing changes providing you use novarossi bearings and when you change the conrod replace the piston pin and clips at the same time every time you change the conrod. Never wash and reuse air filters if you have spent the money on a novarossi why save 5 bucks by useing a dirty filter and the wrong air filter oil. All ways use a quality fuel I use Vp racing At rc car fuel. But there are many outhers like werks whitelightning tornado coolpower/sidewinder and many more. Heat and dirt and dust is what are the bigest damages to any engine. You can get paformance with out running engines at crazy temps. No mods are needed to any novarossi engine all your doing is creating a unreliable engine. Stratagy is what win's races not stright line speed. Regards Jeremy.
Thks I will have it on mind.

Nova has to many .12 engines, and I'm a bit confused in which one I get. I want the fastest one
353 Plus 2 seems to be the last, but its very expensive... its a waste of money? How about Plus "1" line? What's the fastest?

I forgot to mention. The engines must be IFMAR legal

Thanks a lot!

It is very expensive because it comes with 2 engines and other stuff,,but then again when you buy the 353 nova will come out with another engine next week that will be even faster and so on..

Yea from what I heard it comes with this piece of junk:

The engine is not even listed in the catalog: It is just supposed to be a club engine!!

i throw my filters out after each day also. no point messign around cleaning them, they never get back to original. i also use the thicker motorbike airfilter oil so it makes it difficult to clean. i need to use either sugar soap or mineral turpentine and what i save in airfilters would be ofset int he cost of the cleaning agents if i re used them.

17006 is the front bearing (not for the SCT, only for the previous ones)

the conrod code is 07601 and yes it's the same conrod of NS/NSR series....
