Default RB Concepts vs. other Nova based .12s

Just looking for some opinions on which is better and why you feel it is?

RBs are Nova-based too if you do not know.

RB seems to be the choice for most racers because of its price and power produced.

but most important is that you must be comfortable with the parts support. like piston, sleeve bearings.... for each brand..

OS engines are also good, but may not excel in large tracks.

Yes I did know that the RB was a Nova based motor which is why I asked about it vs OTHER Nova based motors. And I'm looking for a little more technical info on the comparisons really but thank you for your input.

RB 12's seem to rev higher than most others, from my limited experience. Though overall power is around the Mugen 12's 1.15 horse, 3 port engines of course. Others have said the fit & finish of the RB's internals is better overall.
The Jp's & the MS 12's are sweet, but there seems to be more options now to those slightly modded 12's.
I've seen those newer Picco 12's running well over the last year.
