a question that will result in 20million answers answer 10 million, mine, is the following:

for value for money the s3 nova. it is quick enough for small tracks, large tracks, and has the benefit of machine internals.

the jps3 is good, but only if you are racing on a HUGE track with top, TOP (as in top ten in your state) champs.

a good driver will do the same times with both these engines consistently. and a great driver will extract the extra "poofteenth" out of the JP.

Wow I am pretty surprized that I didn't hear any RB's yet? They are the fastest at my local track.

Default Best .12 bang for the buck

You can't beat a turbo .12 for $140. That's right this is the STS RS5. I don't think it's the fastest motor out there but you can't find a better engine for the money. Dollar per horsepower. If lyou buy a $239 .12 engine, it won't increase the power output by 50%.

the STS should be a very able engine

because, the manufactrer copied novarossi to make their engines!, so it would be good!

Who says that you can't make a RB idle. My engine is a RB X12T and it runs great and is very reliable. Don't know what is the problem with your engines but my RB runs superb
