NSR's are Microcasted pistons. They are lighter and rev quicker so you see the stats are slightly higher. The RR12L came after the NSR, and another N something novarossi will be out soon as well.

The NS12s run around $230-$270.

Well guys it looks as if I'm gonna bag the NS12 S5 port . Hope it's still in the LHS.

BTw, does anyone know if the NS12 S3 piston and sleeve will fit the S5 or is it completely different? I was thinking if anything I can just have them order me the S3 version, however the 5 port will be fine anyway.

Opinions needed:

I am getting a RR12L3 very soon, and was wandering if i should run it in on 5% or 15%. im moving towards the 5% idea but if anyone can convince me otherwise, your help is appreciated

yes, i will be racing with 15%. i was reading something from the CEFX site ( i think) about WOT breaking-in. this seems very daunting for me to do. will it give my engine a much higher advantage than if i ran it in with the idle process?

If you are racing with 15% then you should brake in the motor with 15%.

As for the WOT method i used that on my current engine and its been running awsome and is very tight still.

The WOT prepares the motor for racing conditions unlike idle which doesnt generate enought heat and will decrease it life in the long run.

The WOT also helps to flush out any dirt or metal shavings left by the manufacturer (yes it does happen even if the motor is new).

The WOT is simple very easy to do, just read the instructions on the CEFX site.

Good Luck
