You would probably get one from P.J. at http://www.radicalrchobbies.com.au/. Give them a ring. Let me know if P.J. cant supply you with it; and I'll look through my old engine parts, there could be some new ones there.

Kindest regards,
Lars.

try Ari fron Northside hobbies also. he has pretty cheap Nova stuff.

put it ont he track Rob. it will break in better when it runs at something closer to race temps. after 10 tanks you are more than ready to get it up to 110 degrees or even more. get some heat into it, they run better when broken in like this. As long as you have good quality fuel, the oils should provide allt he lubrication and protection needed.

Carefully dremelling the exhaust port to make it open for longer can do the same thing as a shorter manifold, but this is a permanent modification and you could possibly ruin the engine if it isn't done correctly or carefully
You could also go a little leaner (if there is room for it) to get more engine speed, or you could change plugs to one slightly colder, but this would lose a little off the bottom end, and could also make it hard to idle nicely.

It's a lot of trade-off's to get more top-end, otherwise there's isn't a great lot to do.
Thanks!

Last weekend I run in my new Novarossi 353 Race.12S, after 900ml fuel the frontbearing was damaged.
Did you also have done those experiences?

All .21 engines are set to 25% and all .12 engines are set to 16% (booth will work fine with +/- 5% nitro content.

But you have to tell more about your engine....

That engine is normally set for 25%, if you did get it new then just leave it as it is.

Do anyone noticed that the fuel consumption for nova PT 12 is much more higher than nova FLASH 12,FLASH i can run 6 min with engine temp 125 cel but PT i only able to make 5min30sec with engine temp 135 cel.
maybe engine tuning problem?
