PT is good enough, no one can identify the extra 300 rpm at the top end in PTS. Also, the Nova creamic bearings are not durable now.
RX8 and Nova PT is perfect combination, I just win a race in this combination.
But be sure you break-in the clutch on RX8 properly, otherwise the PT is useless.

Will say that the two PTS we sold to local guys this season BOTH of them had the rear bearing go bad withing the first 10 tanks of fuel.... both motors about destroyed. they are using that 11 ball rear bearing which seems to be the problem... a couple guys super disapoited their $500 plus motors....

our Max power TQ9 stuff has been better, and all of our old RB C5's from years ago keep running and running and running....

The trick for this engine, never tune it too hot. It suppose to be just warm around 106-110 C max because of the new style heat sink.

I changed mine with TKO creamic, still rock soild.

What is the purpose of the setup. Is it your 1st 1/8 car? Are you going to run nationals, clublevel or just for fun?

I would say to get a 35-plus-21, a good solid engine with steel bearings and fast enough.

I have to agree with Roelof that the 35 plus 21 "Steel" bearing is a better choice,

+1 I just ran a 35+ at the X-Ray race and it was a stump puller.

Wouldn't the "Circuit 11" be better than the "Classico 11" (comparing it against the Flash .21) or is the classico's powerband more suitable for what you're after?

The circuit is way over priced the nova plus 35 with steel bearings is a better motor and is cheaper

The Classico11 is a decent engine but not in the same powerband range of the Novarossi. I have one currently in my Mugen MRX4R and it holds its own but anyone with a better Novarossi or that bada** Sirio CL7R STI, the RB is lacking a lot horsepower-wise.
