The NovaMax:es are maybe not the fastest, but the 5 port versions must be freakin fast at least

Hi,

RODY RB V12 5 ports......this engine is crazy !!!! I race 1/8th as well with JP FX 01, RB C5 RODY, MS Novamega.....this 2.11cc is ballastic, i use to have a NSR 12 5 ports, but put in a V12 rody today, and i was overtaking anywhere i like !!!! Jp, sirio evo 2 and novamax at the track didn`t stand a chance + overtook several 1/8th as well !!!! This V12 was a ex team version ( ran by an ex RB team driver!!), but i am sure a normal one would be the same !!!

The best engine in the world is no use unless its matched with the best tuner in the world otherwise a "lesser" engine with better tune may get more power. Then there is exhaust pipes, gearing, corner speed etc etc etc


I think my next engine (once the STS D5 dies) will be a STS D3R

Well said!

For what it's worth the Novarossi line of engines are top notch
