Has anyone tried the v12 RB here? Were could you buy the rody version? Can't find them anywhere!

I think the correct name for Novamax is Max Power. some ppl call it novamax is because it is a nova base engine kind of like merge 2 words together.

Now RS12 and NS12, they are both Novarossi engines but the NS is a newer version and the RS is the older version.

I dont know much about the V12 engine but I have seen a few Rody X12 5 port died a few times, crank pin was wearing out to fast, less then 3~4 gallons. But the Rody X12 is very powerful on the bottom end and top end kind of like an on/off switch and it is very hard to control the power.

If $$ is not an object then I would suggest Max power, and if you are ok on $$ then I would suggest NSR series, NSR12 S3 or NSR12 S5 (depends on your club rules). And if you are on a tight budget then get the STS D5.

Hope that would help!

Default NS13 S3 JP

how do you remove the venturi from the NS13 S3 JP. It seems cramed in the carb pretty tight. Should i just keep pulling it?

Hey is there any truth that next year ROAR will allow turbo engines? I emailed justrc and he said that his shop doesn't carry any none turbo engines and that next year roar might allow for turbo engines....

Man, no I was hopping you will be there. About Smirnoff, I don't think you can handle that amount:
Any way it will be nice to see you there.
I will be at CP next Saturday, I hope you will be there. We got something to work on-remember?

Post Nova P/S sets sneak info...

Hi:

Just for a future reference, because seems to have a big possibity of coexist during long time two types of 'S3' P/S on Nova engines. Here's how to tell who is who.

Case 1: 'Old S3'. Sleeve is the same in the two cases, but the main difference is the piston. In this case the piston is made from a solid billet. This is the machined piston that actually exists and comes standard on RS12 S3 and NS12 S3 engines.

Case 2: 'Dark Piston'. Main difference on the piston is the way this is created. In this case the piston is cast (like the old S1 pistons), but alloy composition is much improved and withstands much higher temperatures - on the old S1 engines anything over 140șC and the piston was shot. Those pistons holds without a sweat 'normal' operating temps of 155 and 160șC (trust me - have a pair of those sleeves and is a bitch to break-in but holds the temp like a champ).

Those pistons were known as the 'Dark pistons' but are the same that Novamega uses on their MCP (Micro Cast Piston) engine line. This are used on NSR line of engines, and the unique difference is the piston type, not be fooled by different timing arrangements and other B/S, the main difference is the piston, nothing more nothing less.

A way to tell if is an S1 or a 'Dark Piston' when is assembled is to see the different (darker color) and the two oil rings vs. the only one oil ring that was equipped the S1 P/S.

Now probably people ask which works better? Answer: the two are fine. S3 will be fine for Cold and medium temperatures (up to 30șC air temps). Anything over this, the dark pistons will perform better.

BTW: The new RR12L will be equipped with the Dark piston (shhhh! don't ask me how I know... surely will tell you but will need to kill you after telling you ).

Default Re: Nova P/S sets sneak info...

The Novamega MCP that I've seen have only one oil ring. These were the MS version.

Do you know if the timing on the MCP and the NS are the same??
