Novarossi S21P5XLT .21 5 Port Off Road Buggy Engine (Turbo Plug)

Novarossi S21P5XLT .21 5 Port Off Road Buggy Engine (Turbo Plug)
Merdith Roach - Rating: 4 of 5 Stars! Verified Owner Wednesday, February 13, 2013
I've been running P5's for a long time. The reason is simple. It tunes well, has plenty of torque to get over tough sections of the track, and it's proven to be one of the most reliable engines on the market. Going into the main race at the end of the night you know it's going to survive, keep a consistent tune, and lay down the power like no other engine ever made. Don't lean out the top too much, it likes to be close to flush, make sure the bottom end is not fat, and the idle is low enough and watch out. Not the most expensive engine, but it sure is a great one. For me, this engine gets from 8-10 minutes of runtime, mostly 9 minutes and that makes pitstops at around 7-8 minute mark. My favorite pipe for buggy is the 9853ss because it is durable, makes the most power, and just works great with the 41001 41005 headers. Novarossi headers fits the engine tight to prevent gasket damage and prevents movement of the pipe.....If your replacing rubber gaskets and getting bent headers, then your not using a Novarossi....... One problem, Novarossi decided to change the rear bearing. Big Mistake. It has a thicker outer race and uses smaller balls. Not good at all. The original rear bearing is much better. The front bearing finally got replaced with the 17011 with dual outer seals. finally. Now please put the good rear bearing back in.
