In fact, you guy will tell me first, I still have an RS12 ready to run and I have no idea when I am going to run the 5 port.

Those Black Tamiya wheels: Pricey and have to modify it with a dremel to make it fit with cars that use pillow ball suspension. Strong and will never bend, but will break and crack. In other words, if you're not going to hit anything, then go ahead and buy it. Otherwise, don't.

Raced it for the first time on the track just last Friday. This is an off the shelf unmodified RB 5 port, and it kept up and passed Modified MT12's. This is the fastest engine I have ever owned for .12 size. Everyone who saw the engine said that it is FAST! For $30 more for an engine that flies, definately worth it. Just remember if you are in the US, most places will not allow you to race with this engine in most classes, so you are warned!

Just FYI:


If you ever have looked inside an RB X-12/Nova RS-12, you will see flow splitters on the 2 side intake ports, effectivly making the sleeve 5 port w/o actually cutting anything into the sleeves. There for, any gain you see from having ACTUAL 5 ports will be minimal, but still there.

Feel free to attack me on this post!

Hmmm...not sure I understand what you mean?

If you dissassemble the motor, you will see 2 small splitters in the crank case. These are the flow straighteners, and effectively make it a 5 port.
