exactly, this is what I wanted you to think about..........

at World level events, the fastest guys simply have things we cannot buy unless if we are in the right place in the right time and even so we must agree that when we get a "team" engine, we only did it because the one who supplied to you has other even better.......

anyway, what I mean is that I don't believe top or rex engines are below the Nova line..........

They are the same engine produce by novarossi. The three brands are just marketing & distribution strategy.

From my experience, the prices go REX>NOVA>TOP, tho to me those engines look the same, the guys at my LHS told me there are slight differences porting/tuning between these three, also there are a tiny difference in quality control wise (something like the computer processors, ie: Intel's Prentium & Celeron are both based on the same CORE design, but Prentium are chosen from the best chips produced while the rest are left to make the Celerons). Just my little thoughts.

Hence the reason the durability and performance of the true Novarossi is superior as is the price. you get what you pay for in many cases.
Never heard that...so if i order a piston/sleeve replacement i should tell the parts dealer i want a Novarossi spec set? Only the good parts go to team red dot motors... The rest will be the same...Dont think Novarossi would tier their parts....

they are the same quality parts and materials... also they are also current, they are not being made with old leftover parts.... The idea behind the different brands i to allow Nova to have multiple distributes in a competing territory...

Novarossi is the house brand, so as a company their marketing budget, factory drivers, and factory tuned engines will GENERALLY be Novarossi branded, but I have seen top drivers such as Flavio Elias and Mark Green running Rex engines on occasion.

The current Rex engines for .21 on road are the Legend 9 & 7, these are "Keep-On" based engine (these are both 17.6mm stroke engines).

The 7 port version using a sleeve similar to the Kangaroo porting but for this engine design.

The current Top engines for .21 on road are the Elite 9 & 7, these are based on the old "Kangaroo" engines (16.8mm stroke engines), using the 14mm crank shaft design, the 7 port version is a straight copy of the Ison .21.

The 9 port version uses a special 9 port sleeve designed to slip into the Kangaroo style crankcase, similar in philosophy to what Max RP9.0 engines are doing and the Ielasi Tuned 9CL engines.

I think the range of engine brands have become much clearer than they were a few years ago, Top engines probably rev a bit higher, Rex engines probably have more low end grunt.

Novarossi Mito 9C engines at the moment probably have more power everywhere to be fair, but it's nothing to do with materials, just the 35 Plus 21 engines they're based on had gobs of torque and great top end, as far as timings go they're all relatively similar to be fair, but the overall designs of the engines make them quite different.
