Default nova carb on the picco


I did cut off about .030 off the bottom of the carb to get it to sit down further in the crankcase bore, but have been told by others to just use the Novarossi O-ring (fatter) and some RTV to seal the carb base. Compare the spraybars on both carbs at WOT and you'll see what I mean about the Nova carb having a cleaner airflow. Gotta be a 20% difference in total open area at WOT.

Default CRC 3 port, Turbo


I just picked up a CRC, STS.12, 3 port, turbo (used, 1 race) and would like to use a standard glow plug in it.
Anyone have a standard STS .12 head button they want to trade for the Turbo button? This was a GREAT deal and I couldn't pass it up.

E-mail or PM and we can discuss it.

Any Nova Rossi engine head button will fit in the STS.
