yeah i see where u r coming from but down here i dont think that a cx12 rossi is that cheap. well any engine is going to have wear and u will want to replace them if u get a 2nd hand engine so i sat steer clear from a 2nd had job just get a new rossi people may say its hard to tune but when u get use to it u will be fine. u dont waan spend say 250 on a easy to tune engine and then get it tuend down pat ad then u will find that it is not fadt enough and then go out and buy a rossi its just a waste of time and money

I have bought 3 used engines. Force .12 (died in 2 weeks), jp cx12 (ran perfect until I sold it) and RTU (running perfect). SO it can work out, but be very very careful.

yeah i bought a second hand car but this was me mates and iwas the one that put it together and drove it and all so it was all propper and the only person that had drivrn it was me and it was a suck tg10 but it was brand new and a new one is around 600 so i bought it of me mate for 95 bucks and sold it for 300 the only reason why i bought it was that i coul see some profit out of it but if i wanted a car to race with or just hammer round i would buy a new one and keep it in good nick

Hey guys. Havent touched nitro for 5 years now ever since I shifted to electric. I got a second hand V1r from a friend and I was wondering what good engine can keep up with nova? Im planning to get OS zach .12tr. Has anyone tried the 3-ports or 5-ports?

I have a RB Concepts c12 turbo in my nrs4 and it makes great power. Has lots of low end but not too much. I love it.
