I just bought this engine... I have a NS12 S5 and I was looking for a 3 port

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...tem=3182408809

I thought someone would outbid me but it didn't happen so It's mine

It's a RS12 S3 mario Rossi modified... Anyone know what this means??

I hope at least Don Mario's modification don't make it go slower

I HAD THE OS TR ON MY SERPENT 710 and i ran very well i was a bit slower at the end of the straight away but the car launched really fast and i made most of my time in the infield part of the track. I also won a couple of races with that motor (using 30% nitro fuel made by MAXY'S Fuel)

IF i had to pick a best all around i would have to agree with most ppl in this forum tht the novarossi NS12S3 is a excellent engine. STS are also very good if your budget isnt enough to cover the novarossi.

Purchased from Harmony in Hong Kong.
Yes, it's one of the latest "NS" engines using the larger crank.
But there are "greater" ones around - JP, MAX, Rody etc.
