353'09 comes already Tuned and is a lot faster. Bottom end is improved compared to the 2008 version. I found a good deal on the engine here

Default Congratulations and Thank you

I just want to formally congratulate Joaquin (De Soto Racing/Serpent America ) for the acquisisition of the distribution from ITALY of the Novarossi Brand of On Road Motors. This is a great moment for avid Novarossi fanatics in On road racing. We will finally now be dealing with a real professional, on-road racer himself who has all the best interest of stocking our motors and parts all year round.

FINALLY!

Thank You Joaquin (and my good friend Paolo M of course) for saving the Novarossi Brand in the American On Road Market.

All those who agree with me, let's show our support by asking for the Novarossi Brand at our local Hobby Shops.

They now have a huge selection of NOVAROSSI merchandise that has arrived that was never even imported into the USA by the past distributor.

One-stop-shopping for the jewels of RC racing!

Good Luck with the new brands and distributorship!

See you guys in Texas!

Paulie

no but buy an RB rubber sealed bearing and install it after the break in process.

if you have the time, take out the front bearing before starting it up for the first time, and check to see if there are metal fillings behind the front bearing.

Novarossi from Hong Kong are the OLD batch that have a lot of problems, I buy mine in the US and I know that it is the latest batch which there is no problem at all, I have been running it for 3 gallons already.
