Virtus 21 is the new bar that all engines will be judged by. It's both more powerful and more efficient. Simply a better engine. Yes, it is expensive but Novarossi is also the only company pushing forward with design and improvements and that means that they have higher costs than other companies who seem to be happy copying what Nova introduced last year or years before.

BTW Nova has great engines starting at less the $200 so the regardless of anyone's budget they can offer a great engine. The argument that Novas are too expensive is a faceless argument by haters.

Haters gonna hate! Novas are expensive indeed but quality is top notch. Can't say the same about others... I've had a few "others" that do a better job being a pretty paperweight than powering my car. If you ever get a dud nova, you are one in a million.

I rather buy an "expensive" nova than any other motor. Ive had others, and was fed up with their weak con rods. Ive had a novas last me years by just replacing the rod once a year. You get what you pay for

You just can't argue with the TRUTH!!! Let the track record speak for itself, there is a very good reason why Novarossi has been around for so long and continuously going strong year after year.

The new Vir-tus .21 is another powerful but yet sexy beast from the Novarossi line of engines. You just got to love that purple head!!!

Now with the other position of the carburator is already an old idea and I doubt it will boost performance.

Most drivers have enough with a 35-plus-21 or a Flash as I do see in the Dutch competition.
The Keep On engine was a step forward in performance. Why do you think other companies decided to try to copy it?

The Virtus is another step forward from the Keep On. Nova is a step ahead of the others. I don't think it is a coincidence that Nova is the current World Champ in 1/10th Touring, 8th scale and 8th scale off-road buggy.

Default Novarossi

These engines have been the cream of the crop for a long long time

And with the addition of nova tuned pre run you get the best of the best

Most important question is when do they arrive here in the states?

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.
