I just noticed on speedtechrc, there's a Novarossi MR12S5 "Based on the 5 port Novarossi S5 engine". Anybody heard of this and it's performance?

I thought the MR12's has big higher top end coz of it's short stroke but doesn't last as long as the long stroke counterpart.

3% is reasonable. 5% is somewhat ridiculous, but no choice.

manticore i have been running mugen cvd's on the front and 3 racing on the rear for 3 months the 3 racing ones are completely worn out in the pin area to the point of almost breaking through while the mugen ones are still fine,the 3 racing ones use a pin about half the size of the mugen ones,3racing ones half the price and i would say only half as good or worse.

i have the same setup on CVDs

the mugen cvd pin has badly worn but the pin on the 3 racing is still in good shape.

I have no idea what was going right with the 3 racing CVD !

Its a left brace for the MTX3 intergrated with the belt tensioner.

3racing has the same thing and i think they are the same product.
I doubt the quality of this brace.

Tell us what you think about this after runs.

greg have you used some sort of grease on the hub side of the cvd's? maybe this is why it is worn out.(due to lack of grease).
i have experienced the same prob. i actually lost a cvd at kambah due to this. i think it wore right through!

thank you, your service is excellent!

The worn out pin on the front CVDs could be caused by the grease which attract lots of dirts and sands that eventually lead to its destruction?

I had some High-Temp grease on the front CVDs' joints. what's your thought on this?

i tend to agree that grease attracts dust and abrasive particles.
