What motor is in the TT ts4n... If it is a .10 or .12, you should be fine, the only thing would be the clutch... if the tt comes with a motor with a standard crack, you will need a clutch to fit the novarossi, if it has an SG crank, you should be more than fine...

Another thing is that you will have much greater wear and tear as the nova screams like a bat in hell. What a monster.

Well the more powerful the motor the less margin you have for error in tuning. You can kill a NS12 pretty quickly due to its extremely high RPM. Not to say you could not handle it of course.

If you were extremely new to high performance motors I would go with an OS TR or a MT12. Very strong motor and very stable tuning but of course less power.

If you are comfortable with tuning then get the NS12 they are the fastest thing out there.

Yes, I do have this engine. I love it! No I didn't think it was any worse to tune than my Mugen MT.12. It starts good also. The only problem that I have had with it is that I stripped the glow plug button and can't seem to locate a new one. I have the turbo head button and want to go to a standard button. Turbo plugs are to expensive.
