i havent had to much to do with the max but i have tried a flash and a 3sct tuned (both similar, i think ) and also just bought a RB tc10rc and compared to the novas the RB halls ass. have you considered the RB, it has excellent top and bottom end.

just a thought

I have both. Flash is way faster and starts again when hot. The Flash is a bit harder to tune, due to its insulated carb. I said harder, not impossible. The engine must be warm (atleast 3 minutes racing) before you can try and tune it.

If you do not like this, you can always use an old carb on it. I myself, love how the engine easily restarts even when arrives hot from the track after a flameout.

Everytime my Max engine came hot off the track, it would take no less than 30 seconds to restart it.

Hi there, I am currently running a Nova Kangaroo and seems good on my 1:8 on road, but at the weekend some guys were running MAX 21 MAX XL9 TQ

Max seemed way way faster.

Thinking of buying a new Max but not sure.

any suggestions?

been running MAX TQ .21 for over 4 months and its on par with some top end Nova's in my club, get the right pipe combo and the MAX is very very FASSSSSST! mid range is awesome just get your clutch downlow set and gearing and pullaway with a smile....

If i had the money again id go MAX for sure i know it works and holds tune well plus runtime no issues....

The restart is a good point,have had that happen but my fault for running too hot

Max TQ9 is 9 port versus the kangaroo which is a 7 port the max will have more top end the kangaroo will have a tad bit more bottom both great engines to have in your arsenal

Kangaroo is the economy engine from Nova. Compare the Max XL9 TQ ($600+) with Collari or Flash Special. Flash has more torque than Max and better fuel economy. Also, Flash uses the latest technology from Nova like the 14.5mm crank. Max is only 14mm.

The novamax tq xl9 is being sold for about 580.00 in a few hobby stores in new York Personally I feel the smaller crank the max has is the beuty of it's power. Faster spooling out of the turns. The porting in the max power sleeve and crank are more agressive than the tuned nova stuff The xl9 is a fantastic motor I have two one has 9 gallons through it and performs like new. Good luck.

The number of ports is no issue, the performance of a 2 stroke is made by timings.

Yes, it is a cheaper engine so by timings they have made it slower, it would be very stupid to give a cheaper engine the same specs. The 14.5mm is not a better technology, to be honest it is a cheaper technology.
MAX is still choosing for the 14mm crank because it is lighter, because the smaller diameter there is for sure less weight on the outside.

I'm sorry but you no basis for making that statement. 14.5mm engines have dominated the Worlds & Euro Championships ever since they were introduced.
