For me this was the first engine which lasted more as 10 liter's in high competition use.
However if you want the fastest I recommend you to take a look at the Capricorn LAB E01 WC, mine makes flash engines (or any other engine) run home crying.
If I may add to this, I have been running 2 engines for the past 3 years ,made 2 out of 2 main a national finals, won alot of club meetings, posted alot of fastest laps of the day including last Sunday, achieved many TQs, and its pretty rare that I dont get told that i have the quickest motor at the track.
- Yea its true that ive put about 30 littres through my motors mainly one of them.
- Yea its also true that it has had a new piston liner and a set of bearings and a few rods
- Yea it is also true my engines are slightly altered from their stock configuration in a KicKass Racing kind of way
- And it is also true that I lap my engines in 100% allowing maximum polish of bore doubling the compression seal expectancy.
- And it is also true that due to lapping I use just 1 tank thats right 1 tank to run in and race tune my engines for maximum performance.
What engines am I talking about ??????
RB R3 rc - But saying that these engines come with nova cranks, nova piston liners and nova rods.
Moral of the story
- You cant go wrong with any Novarossi based engine.
- and newest is not always better/ faster, I look it as a marketing ploy by companies to provide latest evolution engines yes with different specifications to give people choices.
- Remember its not what you have but what you do with it.
