There were a handful of PLUS 21-3's at the event. The PLUS 21-3 has a 14.5mm crank vs. the 321P that only has a 14mm crank. I can only assume from the Nova Rossi website that the standard PLUS 21-3 does not have ceramic bearings. They have a new version already- the PLUS 21-3C (C= ceramic rear bearing).

Most of Team Serpent was running the ZX21 with a few exceptions.

I have a REX 321P, and I saw a lot of those in the pits- some tuned versions, some stock.

All manufacturers were represented well- RB, MAX, Sirio were all there in the pits. Almost every engine was represented in the 1/8th 'A' Main. JP, MAX, Sirio, Mega.

Appreciate the replies, but what you have given me is info on only the Max engines. Who is a good source for other brands of onroad engines? Where can I buy the Serpent (Mega) brand of engines?
