Probably the motors you've been using! Also, the Mugen X12, RB V12, OS .12TZ, JP FX .12, and any Murnan Modified .12 will be great. Of course, this all depends on your pipe choice, track size, gearing, car weight, etc......

Wow....you just ordered a engine and you already know it's good!
I don't say they aren't, but it's hard to know if you never ran the engine...
You probably heard from other people they are OK.

BTW:
I also have a 710 and received my Mielke pipe this week (the same, the P1900, EFRA 2501) and I will get my Mega ZX12 this week.

How do you like that combination??
Did you do any modification on the ZX12?
Any problems?

Thumbs up

The combination of the pipe and engine is ok.
The ZX12 engine will also be ok but i change the carburettor to
a novarossi, some of my friends get some problem with it.
I don´t have any problem but i change anyway

The Sirio engines are fast, but the crank shaft is weak. Mine lasted 2 gallons. Go with the new Nova engines.

Default TZ Rules

I've just replaced my N12LL3 and My RB V12 with an OS 12 TZ! The RB is a great engine for a small to medium track. I hated the N12LL3! The old Novas with the CNC piston are better IMO. It lost it's pinch too quickly and just didn't perform. I never thought i'd be saying this but the TZ kicks both their butts! Long and short tracks. It's a little beast, easy to tune, durable, and a great engine all round!

p.s. rc-mushroom.com has the Novarossi NS12 3 port for $175. That is a deadset bargain. It has a CNC piston, not microcast crap!

Yep the RB V12 is an excellent engine, durable, easy to tune, and will hold its tune.
As Rody mentioned, its a good honest engine for a small to medium track, but will struggle to compete with the hi-end engines (like JP, RB V12 Rodys, EVO3`s etc) on larger tracks.
I`ve put close to 20 litres through mine and its still good great compression, runs strong, and is easy to start .......if you get one of these, follow the run-in instructions, use after-run oil after each race day and it`ll serve you well
Cheers

Anything from NovaRossi is going to be good. They are the industry leader. Often immitated, never duplicated!

does jp modify the nova's the best, if not who does. and which engine is modifed, because a modified version of an engine less than like the n12ls or n12ll may not be as good as the stock n12ls or n12ll. i am just very curious.

The 3 best mod motors I have seen in action are JP, Murnan, and Jim Hottinger from Fusion. I am sure there are others that are just as good, but I am only speaking of the ones I have seen first hand. There are some very good stock motors as well. My Mugen X-12 is still a very competitive motor in the right hands(not mine). The new Rex motor is a screamer in stock form. I have heard the new OS is quite good as well.
