I'm no expert in on-road, but reading (knowledge is power RC Nitro mag, both have good reviews. The Rossi is currently #1 in terms of power and the TR-Turbo comes in second (which also was noted in that issue). In terms of tuning (and lower price), I'd go for the OS, if you want the power, go for NS12S5. With regards to your friend talking smack, I'd suggest just take your time to practice with what you have. Even if you have the most powerful engine out there but you couldn't control it, it's more likely you'll just break something.

Get the NS12. The TR isn't even in the same ballpark. I have the NS12TS5 and it's crazy fast even at break in.

the NS12S3 is faster than the TR turbo

and my MR-12 beats the the regular TR

which is way better than the CVRX



the NS12S5 might be to much power for you, seriously


look at the S3 first

plus 3 port engines are easier to tune than 5 port engines

I believe you mentioned Rossi and Novarossi, these are 2 different engine altogether, but both Italian though!,

If you want easy tuning go for the OS 12 TRT, But if you are looking for Blistering speed and serious pickup, then go for the NS12.

You will never be wrong with either one of them if you are just thinking of smacking a CVRX....

BTW, the NS12 is a lot faster than the OS 12TRT!

My 2 cents worth.......

Either one of these engine (NS12 & 12TRT) will definitely shut him up!
However, after having said this, the amount of power harness from the above engines also depends on your hand/skill in tuning it......

I am only comparing the base engines.. not the modified ones... NS12 is definitely faster than a stock 12TRT!

Oh!,That disclaimer is way too long, Man!

Bahhh . . . . what's this mean: "price wise its a better engine"
Surely, price wise the OS is a better . . errr . . price.

Anyway, you need the NS12 and if you can handle the power, you won't be needing those upgrades.
