News to me, and certainly fantastic news for those who are using Nova plugs.

Kindest regards,

Tried the C8TGH and its looking good
Seems that I have a bit of more power.

Barry Ng and I have used this engine break-in method on Nova, ORCAN and RB engines with very good results for the past 6 months. It is also the easiest method I know of.

I've started looking into 1/10 tourers and pricing up cost to likely amount of usage. After engine recommendations just for club level racing at most?

Thanks,
Michael.

The N12T1 is a very affordable engine with enough performance for clublevel. Other good choices are the LL3 and the 353, for sure the 353 if you buy an older version you will have a very good affordable engine for clublevel

The $225 price on the 353 is the range I'm looking in, maybe just over. Thank you.

Don't buy the plus 2 353 for the reason kyosho Malaysia said. Buy 3St, 3sct, or 353 flash. You will not go wrong with either of these.
