Please give us a detailed report on the RR as soon as you let her scream
Stefan.... ending some dirty tricks on it... if everything goes fine will carry some screaming longstrokes to Ft. Myers.

On this side of the pond, seems to be a not very appreciated engine (not much people interested on it, at this time), people still focuses on how much power can deliver at high rpms and ditch the low and mid-rpms, where you are much of the time on the track rather on the backstraight.

Sheer power at high rpms is fine, but you need to have enough dose of grunt to launch the car from the hairpins.

Those engines are fine for the ones who doesn't care about rules and want ultimate power on their cars, still don't know if all the power that are able to deliver those engines will smoke tire, fry clutches or rip belts.

Saw it the RB V15 engine and wondered when Nova will launch their .15 SB. Could be interesting to see those engines in a 235mm car with 100 grams less of ballast and some on the ragged edge of the underweight then.

True, but you can do that with 1 piece pipes as well. Looks kinda funny, but it's possible

Yes, I even attached boat .21 pipe to car and run it, was real fun. A lot of noise and speed, but it was sticking outside.

Isn't the V15 a small block .15? I don't think it'll fit in 235's without some modifications.

i finally saw one of these v.15 small blocks and man does it
screem it seems to have as much rpm's as the ns12 but has
noticable torque advantage. these engines are getting popular
for 200mm lola class your getting a little more power with out
putting the engine to the limit. (you just can't beat displacement.)
hey kev your right these are for sedans chassis.
