Hi

I am not sure where to get them at the best price, but I have run Novamega engines in the past, and had the best of luck with them. They are very well built, consistant running engines, easy to tune, fires up easy every time. I actually raced with one for 6 racedays with practice time on the same glow plug!

Novamega is a Novarossi based motor. All nova based motor are reliable and easy to tune. Another good one to look into is the RB motor X12 series or the letest V12 at good prices.

Sometimes it's harder to find a Novarossi engine though, so since they are all basically the same, I have always gone with what's easiest to find, or what looks best with the car I'm running. I would say for a 705, the NovaMega would be a good combo, but I like to keep all the same names together.
