If you want a reliable and powerful engine RB is the way to go

If your going to buy an RB Engine for your NT1 buy the new ////RB T|10rc, it comes as combo package with the new RB 2659 pipe

Both the ////RB T|9rc and the ////RB T|10rc and reliable and powerful, but the T|10rc has a bit more top speed.

try the nova flash 12/3 factory tune or the Novarossi Plus12-3SCT Factory Tuned they have awesome bottom end and will suit the nt1

RB engines are made by Novarossi to RB specs so both are reliable and powerful engines.

If you have a RB engine, on the carb rubber bellow (the black one) you can see the letters (NOVA) that means Novarossi and RB engines are made in Italy too.

You can see it in the pictures

Hello!
..the RB 2659 is the same of the Nova 2652 in the inside.
If you want more bite-power you can buy a Nova 2660 or a Capricorn 2662
This 2 pipes has almost the same internals and the same conical tube.
Max's 2664 also has the same components but an "old style" tube. Infact this pipe mounts a traditional 8mm tube (this is the external diameter) instead of the 10mm (Cap and Nova) but it is also conical. Obviously less conical because of a mesure issue but conical

If you want to try something different I can suggest you to buy a Jp-Gimar (HIPEX) 2654. I used this pipe (in combination with MaxPower XXL3 bl) in the last round of the Italian Championship.
I race in the F1 cat. and I managed the final with this pipe.
I also tried a Nova pipe in the previous race days but I choose the 2654 because of the consuption. With the Nova pipe I can't do 5 minutes with a tank but using the JP I did 5.20 mins. ..and the power its the same

(ps:ever used a medium conical manifold)

the fastest engine is the Novarossi Flash 3 tuned. When you buy Nova you get a fast engine. All engines are fast and you don`t have to be lucky as is with other brands. with other brands sometime`s your engine is fast end sometimes it isnt. But Nova have the quality with all their engines that is the differance.
Rb are also fast but the take a long time to free up and get the speed is my experience. If you want the best buy an Flash tuned ceramic.
Get an conrod and bearings to replace when broken in.

I would get the new 2660. It is as powerful as 2652 but even better fuel mileage

They take a long time to free up, because the piston has a very tight fit around the sleeve, they use to keep locking up (TDC) for a long time when you are trying to start it when it (the engine) is cold. That is a good sign and it means that RB engines (in this case) last longer then other engine brands that free up quicker
