Default Which motor for my MTX Pro Nova L3 or Mugen X12

Trying to find out which motor is better, the x12 is not turbo and the l3 is. Also the L3 has a micro cast piston which I am not sure makes a difference


Wondering about the micro cast piston..seem they are short lived

Waiting for my Mugen X12 as well, but from what I saw before, that X12 is insane fast (fast enough to race national kinda fast)....not cheap, $275, just as expensive as JP Modified or Max Mod 3 port non turbo engine.......but I am sure that worth the price.

Doesn't know anything about the L3....but MCP are almost a standard feature of all of those high end engine from Nova Rossi to Nova Mega........and the others.

I believed Nitro House has the X12 for $275 plus shipping, but you have to CALL IN to get that price....
