Still looking for the perfect engine.

You might want to try Sirio or maybe the Rossi Black Pixi. Both of these can be had for about $200.

If you want to go with a Novarossi based motor maybe the RB V12 would fit the bill.

i didnt some research on the sts and saw good reviews but its a motor no one has heard off here, not to say it wont be good and it does have a good price. does sts make the motor or is it made by someone else.

actually i want a non novarossi based motor the sirio evo2 is a major choice for me, are the rossi pixi motors novas too?

The Rossi Black Pixi is made by Nova Rossi brother. So no, the Pixi isn't part of the Novarossi family. You will also find the Pixi does have slightly better quality to it, not that it matters too much with these high end motors.

I'm not sure of the newer STS motors, but the one guy that ran them in my area is now running a NS12 motor because it has a bit more higher end power. Still good motors for the money.

From my experience and a few others in our track, they are not as reliable as some other engines.. But definetely worth a try as there are many other that are happy with this engine..
