Default NOVA FLASH .123 OR NOVA 353 OR JPFX12

Whats up guys.. my two friends and I are looking to get engines for our S733.

The choices are in the titles.. i think im going the Flash way lol..

but between the 353 steel bearing and jpfx12 which one would you go? i can get them both for #299. so either way. is the jp as releable as novarossi?


thanks

you want power out of the box ? then it has to be the Flash. the 353 is ok, and the JP is nova based anyhow. so it comes down to the right choice . all out power of the 3, Flash 12. the JP may have more longetivity to the 353. i have had problems of late with all nova engine bearings, mainly front bearings, this goes for a Flash 12, 353, Flash 21, and the Max Power. but they are all nova bearings. so go for the Flash, you wont be dissapointed.

yes it is noticable. let your friends go the JP or 353, you go for the Flash. then i know the other guys will be saving again for the Flash

I would say there is practically no differenc between 2652 and 2660. It's on the Manifold you choose
#41615 (with 5 rings - short) for top speed,
#41617 (7 rings - long) for bottom power and
#41616 (with 6 rings - moddle) between the other two.

I'm mostly using the short one and here and there the middle one but never the long one. It depends on the track your driving on.

More Power ... more Top speed ... more Gas ... maby 10s more drive time can give you an advantage but on the other hand you loos on lap times! So the equation is not so easy ...

Between the Flash .12 and the 353, the 353 has better top end but slightly less bottom end compared to the Flash .12
Basically they are the same, just a little different in power placement.
