Default How does the new STS S12X3 compare to other engines?

Hi

Bought myself a used Kyosho V-One RRR earlier this year, and it had an RB Speedline Matrix mounted.
Been running it for a while, but the engine is old and well used and I'm considering getting a new engine.

Been looking at the new STS S12X3 engine. And its been out for a while now.
Anyone here had any experience with it? How does it perform say compared to a Sirio Evo 3 STi?

Picco or Novarossi. You will find most racers running these two type/based engines. Picco is a little more bottom end and harder to tune. Novarossi is more top end and easier to tune (NORMALY)

Don't forget about the new RB R3 or the Sirio Evo 4 as other engine choices. The Sirio is a bit pricey but the RB is reasonably priced. Also OS has the new .12 XZ line out and you can't go wrong with OS reliability and the blue head version is reasonably priced as well (around the same price of the TZ engine it is replacing).

Thanks fellas I think I just found a place that Sells the STS S12X3 under $220 with free team wear. I just cant get over how nice this engines looked and run at the track, only two guys out of an entire herd have this engines, it is true that most do have novas, and RB's but I am very opened minded guy so I will probably give this engine a shot. I will post back soon.
