why not get the STS .12 Dragon series 5 port?

Power is competive with NOVAMAX and NS12

Price is way cheaper

i forgot to tell you about the sts engines, its popular in hk because of its performance and low price. visit www.stsrc.com.tw
from what i heard this is comparable to the leading 5 port engines. i haven't seen one here but the feedbacks are very promising.

no problem fuzz, i guess ill be sticking with the sirio first. maybe i would consider the sts when the time comes that i need another engine and since the sirio is used here by some racers, i can ask them to teach me how to tune and take care of my 1st engine! thanks!

Do you have idea how much is the 3 port and 5 port. If you want cheaper engine go with .12 5 port ABC not AAC

went with the abc 3port only suntok.. even though the difference is minimal (about P2-3K), its a little high considering im on a budget. and one more factor is i am just starting out, i wont know the difference anyway as this is my first nitro engine.

You can also get the Murnan Modifieds from Lee at Winner's Circle , don't take my word for it, Barry says the same thing....
