Hi, I had the same problem like you, deciding which engine I was going to buy.

It was between the RB T10RC and the Novarossi 353 RACE .12/C TUNED, I had a very hard time to decide.

Both engines are reliably and powerful and both are made by Novarossi (RB is made to RB specs)

After talking to drivers in my country (which most of the top drivers run RB T9RC and R3RC and they are very happy with their engine) and surfing the internet to find out which is better, I went for the RB T10RC and I am very happy with it.

It gives me both bottom and top end power for all the track layouts that I have in my country and it's easy to tune and it keeps its constant tune

I know that it is expensive but do the right thing and buy the RB T10RC with the 2659 pipe and it wont let you down, they are able to stand up for temperature abuse (325F) not like other cheap engines do, they die by the middle of the season while running 260F temps.

Better buy once then twice

Nova 353 Vs Nova Flash 12:
Both are pretty much the same, the Flash 12 having better bottom less top, the 353 with the opposite.

RB T10 Vs T10RC:
Im not entirely sure on this, but the T10RC is like the 353 in terms of that Vs the T10.

I have the T10 with 2659 short conical header, and it's a real screamer even though I really need to run a medium or long one. It has heaps of power and is 100% definitely quicker than a Nova +12-SCT. Ive run about a litre or more through my T10 and it still pinches up on me.

So go for the T10 or T10RC, either of the two will ROCK YOUR WORLD!

Both RB T10RC and T10 are great engines, but if you want the best you can get, go for the T10RC

This is what RB says about the T10:

RB TOURING 10

Performance, reliability, longevity. Here are the three words which define this engine the best. The Touring 10 is the best engine to enter the real world of racing

This is what RB says about the T10rc:

RB TOURING 10 RC

RB .12 top range engine, the Touring 10 RC benefits from a lot of new features. Its exhaust port is 0.5mm higher for more top end. The crankshaft comes with the silicon paste orientated at 20�. The inside diameter with conical shape is bigger than it was on the T9 RC. The new venturi allows a better air flow. The most powerful .12 engine ever according to our team drivers during the test session.

There isn't a big difference in money when buying the T10 or the T10RC(the T10RC is a bit more expensive obviously, talking about less then 100 euro)

Within a few weeks, I will be able to tell you how the RB T10, not the T10RC, keeps up with a Flash .12 Tuned. I guy I know recently got one, so once he breaks it in and I set up his car for the track (recently got himself a RRR Evo1 WCE) Ill say for sure how they compare.

I will tell you, if you don't have the low-end set right, it runs pretty strangely and feels like you have a little less control over the engine. Once you have it right, the response is picture perfect! Just some insight to the T10

I went with the T10RC and 2659 Pipe Combo Set...

The G4RS 09 I have hammers along with it and I really reccomended it. This engine is Ballistic!!!

All in all once it is run in and tuned you wont be dissapointed with it.

Hahahaha, that's what I said when I was still breaking in the engine!! Yes, I was running it rich, and I was almost keeping up with a pretty much properly tuned .12XZ or +12-SCT, can't remember which one, but I was never lapped. Incredibly powerful engine and yesterday it actually pinched up on me! Just goes to show that it has an incredibly tight sleeve even after break-in. As soon as my bottle of fuel runs out, in goes a new rod if I can see it has some play in it or I just don't trust it.

recently i ran the rbt10...i bought it used, ran it in a club race . the performance was good ( being a used engine ) ... the stock rb pipe was quite dented so i just paired the engine with a nova 2652 pipe, 16% o'donnel ... the runtime also was reasonable...6 minutes refuel time. And it didn't died even once during the finals...

Just goes to show how good an engine RB makes.
