I've got a Rody 3 port V12 and so far i think it's a very slight improvement over my X12 Rody.
I run the turbo fluted crank versions with turbo buttons, not the EFRA ones.
Very happy with both engines, reckon they have better bottom end than the NovaRossi. Probably coz of the crank work, but i'm no engine expert.

The V12 crank looks identicle to the X12 crank, the only difference is the diameter of the new crank. The NS12 has an entirely new designed crank, similar to what came in the later Michael Salven motors and the new diameter crankshaft. The NS is better out of the box than the V12.

You should give the RODY's a try. I have been running the same RODY X12 for like the last 5 months. I have put probably about 4-5 gallons of Odonnel 30% and this motor ran at the Sedan Nats at 65%. I can definately say that the RODY was worth the money as long as you employ some common motor care. It is a little softer than when I first started using it, but sitll has a lot of power all throughout the powerband.
