With the RB Touring series, on a small track you would be better getting the T10 or T11, or even a TJ## if it's a very small track, but the T10/T11 are essentially the same engines anyway, just a different head. They have the same crank and sleeve which means identical timings, so theoretically they should perform the same as each other, unless the cases are different and the crank timing has been changed, but I think they are the same.
I hope I didn't confuse you with any of this
Oh no!
I came back from lunch and I decided to take the PT flash! But now I'm reading your thread and became confused
Would you rather take the RB T11 as the Flash PT?

yes, the xceed ZX12 DS4 are also available as EM Edition ( Edo Modified ), so I think they are also Picco based.

hmmm, difficult to decide now...

Yes, Xceed is Picco based. The Flash is excellent, you will be just fine with it.

Hi

Are you talking about the RB T11 Touring or the RS/RC Version?

What is the RB T11 Touring based? I know it is Nova based, but which type?

I was refering to the T11RS... I don't know if it is nova based but you will not go wrong with this one..

It would really depend on where you want to race.
With either engine you can race pretty much on any track, but the Nova PT Tuned will definitely be better than the RB Touring 11 (standard) The T11RC/RS might be on the same level as the PT Tuned, but I'm not sure.

Im sure that RB is still having all of their engines made in the same place as Novarossi, only all of their heads, piston/sleeve/rod sets and cranks are made to RB specifications, not Novarossi. With either engine, you will still be happy with the performance no matter what.
Comparing the T11 and Flash PT, if they were the same price I would definitely go with the PT Tuned.

Has somebody detailed photos from the RB T11 RS. I would like to see the crankshaft and piston.

Many thanks.

Does anyone know which Novarossi conrod fits the RB C10 engine?.
I got a 07009 conrod but that one doesn't fit.
Thanks

None, the crankpin of the RB is a tiny bit larger, I believe 5.0 or 5.02mm while the NR is 4.98

You can try to make the hole of a R7 rod larger with a 5mm diamond bit, I have done it once and did work fine:

Hmm, that sucks as RB conrods are ridiculously priced, €65 for a conrod

Might look into making the R7 rod fit, it also looks like a much nicer conrod.
Thanks for the answer and suggestion Roelof.
