The car in that vid was running the Ofna 086 and for 55.00 you cant beat it. Otherwise a Nova 9886 and short header also works well.

No doubt the Nova N21 R7 is a great engine for our GT car (its got great power from the bottom to the top). Like Marcus pointed out, it is only $250.

Hey guys i was wondering what type of clutch shoes you use with Gt cars.
I installed on mine one Trio variable of Fioroni with two aluminum and one carbon shoe but someone told me that it is better to use just carbon for on road use. They had better bite and don't heat so much the bell.
Is it true?

Most Serpent drivers use the hybrid set - 2 carbon & 2 alum shoes. Use hard or x-hard springs on the alum shoes and medium on the carbon.

Default clutch

I loved the Buku till I tried aluminum carbon set up. Im not as fast as the guys that answered before but you can tune the buku outside of the window very easily. The aluminum /carbon is set it and 4 get it. if traction is a issue go buku if traction is good Im a believer in the aluminum/carbon set up

Novarossi's buggy engines love to work at high RPMs. Higher than others but why keep using a buggy engine in Gt car? Is the track you usually run so tight? Once you work out with more RPM i am sure you won't go back to buggy engines.
I am happy i gave a chance to these on road engines. I love hearing them screaming at the Top.

The track is tight lol. Has about 180 foot straight. Idk I wanna be different and run a buggy mill I guess. Better fuel economy
