Default $300 to spend on a .12

Looking for a new engine for my Mtx-3.

Looking to spend around $300.

I am currently looking at the Nova-Mugen X-12. It goes for around $290 most places.

This engine is better than the NSR in almost everything from what i've read.

As long as I get 5 min out of it each tank, i'm satisfied.

I was also looking at the Sirio Evo-3 for $245 at rc-mushroom. Nice price, I could probably get another pipe with the cash left over.

Seems tempting, never tried sirio engines, I know I can trust nova/mugen.

Mario Rossi Rex! Fastest motor I have ever seen. It kept up with Atushi Hara at the Nats! Try WWW.RCTEXAS.COM

That engine on that site looks like a REX version of the NSR,

Which the x-12 is superior too.

I have a OS .12 TZ(P) T5. It is fast and affordable. It definitely gives you more than 5 min per tank. I paid less $190 for it at rc-toro. Many ppl rave about it. You cannot go wrong with it. You should also check out the new nova rossi, too

Thanks for the suggestion.

I went to order the x-12 from nitrohouse today and noticed the price went from $289 TO $319 so I called and asked for the old price.

They said the engine price went up because the engine now used a turbo glow plug instead of standard.

They said I could have the old price of $289 so I went ahead and ordered.

The X12 is a great engine but stock is the same as the Novarossi NS engine. I agree the JP Mod X12 is the sh*t

Sounds like a nice deal but i'm already in love with my X-12 Turbo.


By the way, I ran 10 Heat cycles, first four for 3 min between cooling times, next two for 4 min between cooling times, last 3-4 for 5 min between cooling times.

Left the piston at BDC every time.

Took about 2 tanks,

I already race tunned the engine and drove it around the track, think I should of done a few more cycles?
