Well you are asking for 2 different thing! Rody is a modified engine and the NS12 S5 is a stock engine! if you really have to compare the 2, of course Rody!

Which one is better??!!? What is your definition of better? Your question should be which one is more expensive? LOL...this one should be a no brainer......Rody vs. stock ns5...psssh...this is like comparing apple to orange. Take a wild guess mtx3racer..hehe..

Look at the ize of the Rody carb and tell me which is better in terms of power.

If its in terms of a great overall engine (cost, maintenance etc), I would go for the NovaRossi. Lower output = longer life span (if all else being the same). Remember the Rody is a standard RB that is modified to crank out more power, the parts have not been replaced with more durable stuff.

They are both good motors. But if I had a choice between one of them, I would choose the novarossi.

At my track, theres a kid who has the 3 port X12 Rody and his is just as fast as my S5. But for the price, Novarossi without a doubt. $240 vs. $300+!
