You wanna loose weight? The 1st thing is try to loose rotating mass, I already have lost 20 gram with the clutch and brakedisc and that is a lot that close to the source. 1 gram on the clutch is like 5 gram at the wheels
Thats a very good thought, thanks for that. I will have a look.
maybe I will go with just the backplate screws and leave the head screws alone.

Thanks again.

Correct,

I broke some titanium screws for engine mounting.

Steel screws never broke off for engine mounting purpose. They just wear out at the head tip.

Default Roma .25

Hey guys, I have a Roma 25 coming this Thursday and I'm trying to find a review on it..I am really struggling to find one anywhere. I'm really excited about this engine and would love to read someone else's report on it. Also I would like to know the preferred break in process for the novas. I believe the heat cycle will be the answer. As I have done my last four motors this way.

Thanks in advance to any replies and I hope that I hear from someone with a Roma as well.

You might want to try and ask over here instead but reports are coming back good. Lots of power and good run time!

Got a chance to test out my Keep on vs my pt this weekend @ Fort Myers
Almost tq'ed the 1st rd with the pt just got spinned out by another driver did 33 laps 7:02 qualified 2nd
then in the 4th rd went with the keep on got a bit more faster made 1 mistake but still got the Tq 34 laps 7:09
Both motors ran great the pt seemed to have a bit more top
The Keep on had more bottom but felt the same to compare top end all in all you can't go wrong either way

I'm very satisfied with the 2015 pipe in overall. The coming race for me is on a small slow track with couple of very slow corners.

Tested with different things last weekend and wasn't so pleased with the car performance. (having problems with the low end torq & low end needle settings..) What do you think about the 2052 pipe?? will it give me more bottom?? The fuel consumption is no problem.

And yes, with 35PLUS21 engine that is.

I have nova 2052 pipe with short manifold, they are matched with sydney kanggoroo engine. I think 9886 is still the best pipe if it legal for racing in europe. I feel 2052 is still less powerful than 9886.

Does anybody know if Nova head buttons 28022 and 28022/1 are interchangeable? Optically they look identical... Thanks for your help

Yes. The 28022/1 will give you more bottom than the 28022.

I have installed 3 of the r-7 rev. 13 rods and they all had the greenish hue on the bushings. The one in my engine has 2, 2 day races at medium sized tracks. All is well. I'm curious about the blisters under the wrist pin bore on the beam of the rod? Was anybody having problems with the little end stretching?
