+2 , Novarossi is been always a step forward over the competition, who always copy the good work of them. and is not news that they are more costly than others and is because they pay for Development and Technology not like others that just imitate their technology. Novarossi has a great line of mills from clubracers to Top level drivers and from low budget to high, you name it. also the price range is very accessible. THE SUN ALWAYS SHINE FIRST AT NOVAROSSI FACTORY!!!!!!

Novarossi Vir-tus is well and true out of my price range at the moment, maybe not in the future.

I did have one of the N21-3T Basic engines, which I never got to run and I sold to a club member he ran it and he said he was seriously surprised how fast it was for a "club engine".

Novarossi have a good product range and a price point anyone can buy into the brand, but I do believe the performance Picco engines offer for the price point is very good hence why I'm running Picco engines at the moment.

We'll see how the fuel economy works out for Picco at the Euros at my local track Halifax

Have you had a chance to drop one of the new Vir-tus motors into a 977 to see if the slight forward offset on the carb location causes any linkage or tank clearance issues?? Suspicious it would have been a problem on the 966.
Yes i did. It fits perfectly. You can point your carb straight as an arrow and no problem!!

Easy there tiger....slow down take a deep breath its all going to be ok..Nova is the best engine in the world and Virtus will be the best engine ever produced.... till they bring out the next one which will then be the best one in the world ever. All the R&D and stuff. You win.

The issue of Novarossi is only the price. But the performance is the best Performance and its difficult for other engine companys to reproduce this high performance.

Only because Nova is to expensive I didnīt use any ...but for sure its the best engine.

The Keep On got brutal couple and amazing top speed. Nothing more to say.

Damn price

Iīam wondering why other Engine Brands didnīt go the same way of the 9 port engines with extra long stroke. Maybe isnīt so easy to do a good engine based on this features.

Only BP Racing is doing such a 9port engine.....

Others remain on the 7 port concept
