Exclamation Best Value For Money .12 Nitro Motor

Pretty much as the title says. I'm looking for the best value for money .12 nitro motor on the market to use in my Kyosho V-One RRR. There are so many to choose from so I thought I would ask for all of your input on this one.

Thanks in advance!

What are the thoughts on the PICCO JLR .12 EVO3 JLTuned RED-DOT motor?

I am trying to achieve as much HP & RPM possible without spending over the top. I will be using the motor for racing.

Novarossi 353 2009 by far, I used it in my RRR and still do, bought 3 and have 2 brand new on the box for my new NT1. Amain has them for $225 bit I think if you go to Desoto racing I think they are $20-30 cheaper.
Almost everyone that races sedan at Floyd Bennett field has or had one at 1 time.
If you want a fast powerful motor that IMO in well worth it's price any Max Power motor is worth it

I went to Desoto Racing & they are actually $25 more than A Main Hobbies.

Is there a club discount or something?

i bet it will do very good with a set of ceramic bearings and a little teardrop on the side ports. You will be supprised what dis engine can do

We run it stock and its real good, 0,5 sec off the pace from the front runners at the most. Last national it was 0,1 sec from the previous one with a factory engine fastest lap. Must admit it where the fastest drivers behind the car.
But you can do it also.

If it's your first nitro engine, Roelof suggestion is a good starters engine. I use older Nova 353's as club motors around $250

It's more a decision on compatibility than it is performance.
Building up a history of buttons, cranks, pistons and conrods can come in handy latr on. Don't buy an engine that requires specific plugs or odd proprietary components, they become throw aways!
Get the N12...Do your SCIENCE on it..Experiment and practice maintenance, the moment you feel it's getting old, either get another if you feel you need more time or move on up the family tree of engines.

Bertrand, if you can do it that easily, you need better competition and a sponsor
