Default Novarossi Flash .21 PTS or RB Classico 11?

I just bought a Xray RX8 and looking for best overall engine for low consumption fuel, high torque, high and low end but still still modify it by Murnan. I need more info regaring this 2 motor specially the RB engine, can someone please help me decide?

2 compleetly different engines, one low end and the other high end. Choos a middle way and go for a 35-plus-21

Definitely go with the Novarossi. I currently have the RB Classico11 and as compared to the Novarossi or Max Power I raced against this weekend, it doesn't hold water to those. Spend the extra dollars and go with the Novarossi; it is the difference between racing with the leaders or being lapped by them.

Hello from France,

you can't compare a Nova Flash PTS with a RB Classico 2011....

The Nova is a top class engine and the RB is a low budget engine!!!!

If you want to chose, you must have look to the RB C11 (circuit 2011).

Au revoir.

Yes, romuald31 is correct, the Circuit11 is more on line with the Novarossi engine than the Classico11. The Classico11 would be more of a sportsman class engine, great for a beginner-type 8th scale class with just enough power to get the car moving for a new 8th scale racer but not too much to make it hairy fast.
