No the power is the same with .12 nova and more expensive instead buy nsr12 s5 or sirio evo2

I got the RB V15 and I can really tell the difference between the V15 and my NS12S5. If you have two drivers (all things being equal) the driver with the 15 would win hands down. On another note the cost of the 15 is not really worth it because a better driver with a nice 12 will still blow your doors off (except on a long straight).

But I don't think you can go wrong with the NS12 or NS15...both are killer engines.

I see that the NRS12S5 is around $270, how much cheaper would the S3 be ?

i have a MODIFIED sirio evo II and i can tell you that the rb v-15 is as fast if not a little faster so the ns15 should be about the same. they are faster than .12 motors. some say they have to much power for 1/10 cars. also i dont want to take anything away from the sirio it really flies but it is at a disadvantage being that it is a .12 and not a .15

A stock nova 15 small block is faster than any 12. I remember rody saying the stock V15 was faster then the rody roem V12.

I can tell you from experience that you better have your car set up right because the power of a 15 small block in a 1/10 car is crazy.

i have never seen the ns15 in action but from what i have seen from the rb v-15 the ns15 should win. but just my opinion
