Just like at the Euros two years ago, this might just be one of the deciding factors at this track when the worlds are on in August.

With a bit of work, you can get the topend out of a Picco, but the the fuel consumption will go up a bit as well.

I would go for the Picco and play with the gearing to reach the same top speed, simply because of the price difference.

Nova Rossis are probably the best engines out there, but the pricing structure is getting a bit ridiculous.

Hahaha, I'm sorry... I misunderstood your remark... don't know why, maybe it was a bit late yesterday....

Tomorrow we will run the 3rd round in the Dutch Championship, It will be a rain race, So I will not run my IDM, but a good old Novarossi RX21 speed, which is a perfect rain engine....

what is the average time you can run (1 full tank) IDM evo3 .21 by using the noise reduction?

The same as without the noise reduction, or maybe 3 seconds longer......

i thought when using it...air will be less thus fuel consumption will be less too...therefore time will be much longer..

Running with or without an INS box doesn't really make a difference in needle settings.
Also we run them already for years now, and still barely reach 5 min. on a tank.... it certainly doesn't give you "much" longer runtime....

Are we talking about Picco or NR engines here? We only have had problems with the 2052, 2015 and 2018 exhaust on big tracks. Normally with a 2033 you can even manage 5 minutes on Lostallo.

Pieter, the guy was asking how much runtime you gain with running an INS box. We were not talking about exhaust pipes...
