Talking INS box RB .12

I purchased a INS box for my RB R3 engine. The reason is track is dirty when testing and its in the rules as 2009 all .engines must run a INS box.
The INS box I purchased is a nova rossi. There is no way it will fit on the engine.
Has any body else had the same problem. A mate has a Nova Rossi 12-3sct and he says it fits his no problem.
Maybe have to change engines to a Nova

The nova one has a slight dent in one side for your carb needle, and you can grind it away some more and make it fit the engine (IDM/picco)

But, there is NO way it will fit under my body. (stratus 3.1/kyosho rrr)

Maybe you should try the Mugen INS box, it's physically smaller than all the others and fits .12 engines with no problems.

I believe this is the airfilter they're talking about. The Mugen Airbooster.

We used these at the nats in 06 here at Crystal Park. Helped with the runtime issue as well.
