me and a couple of friends here have been running the S5 for a while... i would say the performance is around the same as a large production 3port mod engine... maybe a little better..

Got one in my GT-4. Beats the pants off my RB X12T (3 port). That's all I really have to gauge it against.

I have one and comparing it to my 3 port RB X-12T it's really fast on big tracks. On samller tracks, I would say it has got slightly more punch when you throttle hard.

Better yet, have you guys seen any JP RS12 T5 S1 running? Thought the regular S5 was fast already.

I've seen a M.Speed version of the S5 on our track and it was blindingly fast! There was no way my standard S5 could keep up with it.

It's gotta be fast when one pays nearly $400 just for a .12 engine.

By the way, does anyone know what Trinity mean by "RS12T5S2" on their site? Is it a typo that "S2" should be "S1"?

As far as I know the S3 is the latest engine from Novarossi.

www.novarossi.com

Never actually seen an S2.

S = Slide Carb (R for rotary)
2 = Standard crank (1 for SG)

I bought a RS12 T5 S1 and on the head it says S5 RACE on it. Now I've seen these engines referred to as S3s and S5s. I'm assuming that's the 3 and 5 port engines with legal cranks.
FYI

Default More low-end punch from Nova 5S?

I've had my car pretty dialed in for with the stock 50/47 spurs (for tight technical tracks), and 49/46 spurs (for the technical track with long sweeping corners)...but I haven't had much success with the 48/45 spurs (for the high speed tracks). The Nova 5S in my Impulse doesn't seem to be able to provide enough power for a quicker shift into 2nd. The best I could tune it to is about 30ft. Any earlier, and the engine bogs down. Short of changing my engine to one that produces more power at the lower end of the powerband, can anyone suggest any tips to coax a little more power out of my 5S for that extra punch? I'm using Blue Thunder 25% with Rossi C6tF plugs. It runs a little hot. I'm thinking of swithcing to #7 plugs.

I know its for fast tracks, but its wickedly fast and if I can get more low-end power, I might be able to use it in smaller, tighter tracks.

Grab a caliper and measure the I.D of your exhaust pipe, probably is 4.8 or 4.9mm, get some good quality Metal drills and bore up to the maximum exhaust diameter (5.2mm is the max). You need to notice it a lot and reduce some degrees on your engine temp.
