Default Can I beat 'em, or shall I just join 'em

There are a few guys at my track running Novarossi engines, and to be different I would like to run something else in my RRR. I'm currently running a JLR Red Dot Evo3, and although it's a competitive engine for the money, I'm not very impressed by the quality or longevity of the engine components .

For my next engine I'm thinking Orion or RB, to run against the Nova 353's and 12-3sct's that seem to be the powerhouses at our track (quite a small, twisty track). Any opinions on what ORION engine, or RB engine to have a real crack at these blokes.

Cheers

Be aware that most toplevel engines can be a winner regarding the driver/mechanic.

You can have a beast of an engine but if you can not give it the right setup and driving techniques it won't be a winner.

Thankyou, I am aware of that

The new RB engine is a good one. I know that Murnan Modified has done a great job with the ones that he does. Also, my favorite...Max Power(just had to through that in), but whatever engine you run, you have to have your trust in it to be a winner. Sounds stupid, doesn't it? Another good engine to run that I think is faster than the above mentioned is the Sirio engines....

Good luck mate!

Murnan RBM3 is the fastest engine I have ever seen in a touring car!

If the track u are running is small & twisty track, i think a O.S / IDM will be good!

I would recommend a RB touring 9 RC.

Wrecked one of my own engines a couple weeks ago during a racing weekend and borrowed a rb r3 rc from a fellow driver.
I was simply amazed by the low and top end power.
But the best thing about the rb engines is the smoothness at they deliver the power.
Had a lot better throttle control compared to the JP engines i usually use.

hmm.. im no expert but i can suggest few engines which suited the same track characteristic as yours since its the same here.

what i see here, picco's, IDM, OS XZ, orion crf wasp and jp-p3l has more advantage and spank most nova's out of a turn except for 1 engine, 3sct tuned its just crazy fast all out or its the driver or maybe both. who knows
