As all curren Nova based engines use the same size internals (the main sizes being equal that is) I would be interested to see how NovaRossi is going to make new stuff that doesn't fit NovaMega. That would mean it fits none of the current engines...

Default Salven's engine.

Hi,

I have enlarged the picture by 100%, and find out that the carb is a nylon one, instead of aluminium.

This can affect the costs a bit, but not by 30-50% like said on mytsn.com.

I hope the new line of engines will be fast and reliable.

Smart move!

That's really childish... If I was using NovaMega and didn't know parts are interchangeable with NovaRossi, I'd be MegaPissed with NovaRossi. I would change to Mega by Picco in an instant.

Heck... I'm using NovaRossi now, but I'll change "just" for the difference in price.

What does that specifically mean? NovaRossi will no longer supply parts to serpent? Or Novarossi will make it difficult for all novamega owners to find parts for them? Perhaps Serpent should start publishing novarossi part numbers for their current lineup of novamega motors.

In all probability, Novarossi will stop supplying Serpent with spare parts for the Novamega engine. However, Novarossi would be foolish not to ensure that users of the novamega engines do not have an alternative supplier for spare parts. Expect to see the appointment of a new distributor for novamega specific parts.

I have noticed that not all the nova based engines use the same parts. eg the conrods may be different as the crankshaft pin is sometimes bigger or smaller

Novarossi, on my point of view has been extremely arrogant in making such statements.

There prices have been sky-rocketing over the past few years, and we can't really blame them because nobody could match their standard of engines.

But now that other companies are so called more independant in making more reliable and faster engines, I hope they will DESTROY the market dominance of Novarossi.

I'll definetely support companies which are putting in efforts to bring the costs down on RC.

They've obviously tried to take a leaf out of Microsoft's book - only in this case, you can change an engine to another manufacturer very easily - not like the well know operating system.

Hi,

The best for Rc racing engines would be a non Nova Rossi based world champion.

So it's up to Picco, Sirio and now Mega to built an engine that can beat the Nova Rossi based engines.

That is why I hope Serpent and Mega will win the worlds!

Do Novarossi carbs fit on Picco engines?
Pieter Bervoets already said that the new Mega engines will come with plastic carbs.
I hate plastic carbs.
I prefer to use the reliable metal Novarossi carb if I switch over to the new engines.
