Default RBV12 or NSR3 Engine ???

I am having a dialema choosing a new engine. I have reduced it down to :

RB v12 Turbo (RB430)
or NSR12S3
both i can get delivered to the UK for about 150 ($270 USD)
I need it for rubber legal racing and want to know of anyone has any experirnce of these angines or any comments.Its going in my G4.

In order or importance to me.
Ease of tuning
All round power
Reliability

Thanks

if you want easy to tune and reliability you should look at the O.S.TR .12

Stick with Novarossi. Although RB is the same family as Novarossi, but their QC is somewhat lower. Not that Novarossi is better, but RB happens to be lower. That's all.

I have to agree. I have owned both novarossi and RB engines. while i like both very much, I would still pick novarossi over RB. As fish stated, their QC is not as good as novarossi's.

Sorry, can't agree, in fact I can't tell the difference. All parts are interchangable.

I agree rjl. RB is awesome, as good as NR. People say that RB is not as well finished or as good QC, dont know how they come to this conclusion, all my RB are fast.

I'll stick with Novarossi, too! somehow I overheard the expression of "rb" stands for "rubbish".

but only when compare with Novarossi based engine, ok? With others, the RB surely kicks buttocks!

boring fish

I have just had confirmation that i can get the RB delivered to the UK for 120 GBP.That is amazingly cheap.Thanks for your comments,Its looks like an RB is going to be wingning its way form HK.

It sounds like a personal preference thing and as ive never had an RB I might as well find out how good they are while i can get it cheap,

Cheers

Seems odd that you get it from Hong Kong when people swim the channel.

Yeah, but you'd need to have a pocket in your bathers.
