I would sell it to you but it's a turbo button also. I purchased it at the same time as my JP Turbo. Sorry! I had to order a new non-turbo Mugen MT-12 button from my LHS, it set me back another $20. Do you have a newer short rod Nova Rossi, or the older long rod version? I have the Nova Rossi p/n for the non-turbo short rod button #28604. You must use this button on the short rod engines or the head will tighten down but the button will still be loose. If it's the older long rod version any Nova Rossi .12 button will do. Here's the Mugen p/n I purchased #28601. That p/n will probably work thru Nova Rossi direct also. Good luck!

Default CRAZY NUT RACING

I just bought a head from crazy nut last week.Got it a couple of days ago and installed it on my ofna .21 p4.Ran my buggie for a few minutes around the house.Part on the road then in the grass with the stock head first then the crazy nut head.Saw about a 70 degree drop in temp.I ran it just as hard with both heads and was so pleased.Quality is fantastic and performance is even better.You can't go wrong this head.AAA+++

70 degrees! Holy smokes, and I thought 30-40 was good. Glad to hear it's working for you, I recommend this guy to everyone I talk to. I was watching Worlds practice today and had a chance to talk with a few guys from Associated, I even recommended it to them!

Me too! Just when you think "Wow, I'll never tell", then blah-blah-blah! I just think everyone deserves a good thing. Helping out your fellow racers is what it's all about.

thanks for the help man! i'm not sure what's in these RB X12s, I think it's short rod though cause I remember the power band feels very different from the long rod MT12 I had. Can you send me an email with the # for your lhs? I'll call them and see if I can order the buttons through them - my lhs sucks pretty bad. Thx.

You can tell short vs. long simply by looking at your piston sleeve. Does it stick out of the block with sort of a lip? Or is it recessed into the block with a flush fit? Above the block is a long rod, below the block is the short rod. My LHS is Hobby Stop West in Toledo, OH. Their phone number is 419-471-1108, ask for Bill Bridges(Team Losi driver), hes a good guy and he'll hook you up if he can. Good Luck.

Guys I can't say enough about those crazy nut heads.No matter how hard I run my OFNA buggy I can't get the temp over 230 degrees.My buddy has a GS storm with a crazy nut head with even better results.These have to be some of the best heatsinks built.They are amazing.

I have to second that. I COULD NOT get a JP hot today. It was incredible. Had to be an 70-80 degree difference. This thing is the best hop-up money can buy for a nitro. I could run for 5 minutes and PUT my friggin Hand on the head and hold the chassis...by the chassis! Mark my words these things will be on everybody's car in 6 months.

Was running with a friend today that has a kanai 2 with a OS rz vo1b and when we both came in to refuel we waited about a minute with the motors off. His head was still hot and mine was cool to the touch.He could not believe it.Made a believer out of him.He wants one now!!!

NTC3NUT... is your head for a JP .12?? Got kinda confused reading your posts ( kinda new to RC) But if yours is a JP, did you have to buy anything in addition to the head to put it on your engine. Not sure what you were sayin about the button.

The JP is a Nova Rossi. The button you have on your engine is reused with the Crazy Nut head, it doesn't come with one. The only reason I changed mine was to go to a ROAR legal non-turbo plug.
