Default JP BLACK RS-12T5S1 5L Turbo or the JP BLACK RS-12TS1 3P Turbo

JP BLACK RS-12T5S1 5L Turbo or the JP BLACK RS-12TS1 3P Turbo

Which should I get for a small and tight track?

The 5 Port is US $290 and the 3 Port is $235.

Also I have been racing for at least 6 months, and have been in the hobby for 2 years.

Thanks

Sami

You asked for an opinion.

If you need a JP engine after racing for 6 month, then for Pete's sake go with the 5 port.
I would probably even recommend a NovaMax 5 port, it's even more expensive.

If I had to chosse an engine for you, I would pick the Mugen MT12, lot's of low end and it costs anywhere from 139 to 169.

Just my $0.02

if you race on a small tight track why do you want a jp 5 port for?
go with a standard nova s3. same speed out of corners (well not really but i doubt it you would notice it on a small track) cheaper, and just as quick.

Now we are talking! I wonder how the JP NSR12 5 ports compare with Maxpower (VMax, Novamax)?
