Go for OS 12 TZ Speed Version. if you can get the Mspeed, try to get it. Is very powerful. or even Novarossi LL3/LL5 also have the Mspeed version.

the 12plus3 is a really good motor. Probably a lot stronger then the OS powerwise. Reliabilitywise, thay are probably the same.

My 2 cents

I have the Novarossi .12 Plus and have no problems with it. Is fast and easy to tune, also have the Novarossi LL3 and I'm very happy with them.
Use to have a OS TZ Murnan Mod and was fast and reliable.

Have a friend with the OS TZ EB Mod and just bought the Speed Version and both of them are good engines, fast and reliable.

If I need to choose I will go with the 12 Plus 3CT, ceramic ball bearings, already tuned and good price.

IFMAR (PLUS 12-3CT) and EFRA(PLUS 12-3C).

Good choice. You can't go wrong with either the 12-3 or the Sirio!!!

I just checking on the novarossi website against the 2 x engines, the plus .12-3c and the plus .12-3ct

Whats the diff between the 2? ones EFRA legal and the others IFMA legal is that it? power wise is exactly the same? They used the same info for both engines so its kinda hard to tell.

Cheers.
