Thanks!! More Power!
I believe Nova PLUS12-5SCT is the best 5 ports engine currently.... reliable, easy to tune but a little bit expensive.

It seems only available in some Japan Hobby Shops but I am not sure which one carries this new engine currently.

What he means is that they are easier to keep in tune, less fussy for settings, bigger window for high performance, not that they don't hold a tune during a race. I run novarossi and OS and get better results with novarossi but I have to tweak the carb a lot more than my TZ.

Default JP Racing FX12 T-05

I would go for JP FX12 T-05. It's very reliable, fast and haven't had any issues with carburation...

no stock 5 port will stand up to a modified one so if you want the shit get a M-Speed Novarossi LL5 or a Kondo custom O.S. .12TZ 5port
they are both well kown tuning shops in japan m-speeds work is a little nicer but cost a little more but both shops are top of the line

KONDO custom
12TZ-T5 turbo private school special
XXYEN 46200 (substance price 44000)

It is the tuned engine of the same specification as the tuning of OS 12TZ-T5 which is picked up at the Kondo private school of the RC world magazine. Furthermore tuning is administered from the usual SET UP engine.

55230 Yen in commodity introduction item turn MPB-010PU trade name NOVA N12LL5 M POWER color purple fixed value price including tax (52600 Yen in price classified by tax) preparation thought: 1/10GP touring Solution theory: NOVA N12LL5 (5 ports) it tuned the section in the base. As for the crankshaft, as for light weight potting balance from the first, we modified in the processing which molybdenum coating does from former mirror surface processing. It corresponds to Takaide power ・ high revolution, preventing surface high-level improvement and the being stuck of the mixture! The connecting rod the occasion where circular motion is done, in order to hold down friction drag of the mixture which it occurs to minimum, bevelled the end face and the polish finished. The sleeve devises flow of the gas and cooling characteristic, the line of V letter is provided in exhaust port lower part. 2005 M POWER series by all means, appreciation. Description below is the normal specifications of NOVAROSSI publication.

i dont think so, novarossi is faster more reliable than a OS, the fastest will be the nova plus 12-5sct or the JP 5 port.
they are more expensive than a os but the reason is obvious.
