Default NOVAMAX

I have just got a NOVAMAX but I haven't tried it out yet. If I was you, I will buy something new and lastest one because EVO5 and C5 , both also not cheap.. I believe the price is quite close .

But If you are very new for 1/8, You might need to get a engine that easier to handle like Nova Rossi Race but infact, It's a lot of power as well. Then you get a better engine when you know what you want. and keep first engine for pratice .

Just an Idea

NovaMax is the king now. It is faster than JP. Just tune down the servo speed and throttle travel for the speed you need.

Your claims are interesting... not to create any arguement or sorts, but have you seen the both of them running together? I would like to know more....

I have seen the C5 run, and I just finished breaking in an EVO5 MS for a friend. The Evo5 had about 1/2 gallon through it and was making huge power, more than I've seen before. Still had so much pinch that it would get stuck sometimes. It might have been a rarity, but if they're all like that.... wow.
