first off, you might wanna consider getting a .12 engine in case someday you race a sanctioned race. That said, I would go with a novarossi. The RBs are nice but I think the NS12 is a better engine than the V12. Don't know if it's the same for the .15s or not

Default NS12 vs RB v12

These motors are very similar the one big thing that I noticed with the NS is that it has more work done to the crankshaft than the V12. The NS seems to have a lighter crank with a scoop cutout for moving the fuel /air mix up to the ports. I don't know if the full sized V12 crank was left alone for more torque.
