I’ve got a gallon through mine now and not a single complaint. Tons of bottom end power and decent top end. Pretty good on fuel mileage as well. I’ve had faster motors but don’t know if I’ve had one that idles this strong after 20 minutes on the track yet. Holds a tune and goes braaap, what more can you ask for 200 bucks.

update 10/11/17. I’ve got 2 gallons through this motor now and my review stands. It’s the best value running for 200 dollar engines. A bit slow to warm up, behaves like a bratty kid until it does, but once it’s warm, it rolls out. Holds a tune fantastically well, just don’t finger it while it’s warming up. It’ll run like crap for 4 to five minutes even with a head heat but then smooths right out and idles for.

Ok so, I'm really not a nova guy. I love my OS motors. Bought this as a practice motor for my buggy and now it's my main engine! Very smooth power band. Great top end. 10-12 on a tank of fuel and the idle is the most consistent nova idle I have run!

when you buy a motor and you have nothing bad to say about it.. you know the motors the real deal keeping up with os motors where people spend 500 and up on a engine and you can get it for half .. i plan to try the protek os base engine heard it does 14min a tank gotta see if the hype is true lol


update ran about 10-12 gallons before i had to change the bearings everything else looks brand new

Great engine for the $..I bought it for a practice motor but it hasn't came out of my car since...Took awhile to fully break in but now on it's third gallon it's really come alive..smooth, easy to drive and holds a tune perfectly..I've gotten faster/more consistent running a "slower" motor..

At my last race, my mane buggy engine "Reds WR7" the rear bearing went out on it. And wasn't enough time for a rebuild at the track. A friend of mine had a LS5 as a backup already broken in and I did the swap. I couldn't believe how strong and engine it was for only 200$. I the future, when I need another engine I'll definitely put a lot of consideration in getting one. Strong engine for the price.

Like that she came with a 4 needle carb but coming off of an rtr engine I thought the mid range needle was the low needle so be careful. Runs cooler than my nova p5 and wasn't as tight so break-in was much much easier. Great value when on sale. But being that it's nova based, they're known to like to be run hot so keep that in mind when choosing fuel/oil and trying to tune her.

Awesome engine for the price! Runs just as good as high end engines. Use for practice days before race day. Will be purchasing another one in the future.
