Glenn had/has (they're out of stock for a few weeks) one that was coined for lack of a better word a Hybrid as it has the best features of the other 2 Nova Rossi's.
I checked the header that Glenn has and it looks like it will fit just fine. I had him mod the carb so that engine is now also set up for the OS remote needle. I heard that some people had to cut the tub a little to get the stock carb in there.
Your AOA should be fine as the boat was designed with it being very forgiving.
Rivers aren't cool to run in, don't ask me how I know unless you've tried to chase down a dead boat in one. The water moves a LOT faster than it appears. We're supposed to see the mid-70's by the middle of the week, I gotta get my rear in gear!

The river is not an option, Ron. I did read some of the posts on people dieing tiring to retrieve a small boat from fast moving water. I have a 8' heavy Salmon rod with a large float & weight. I am pretty good at it. will post the monster rod soon.
TT I may not bring the Garmin first time out, will see. I have an old school, stop watch. I want a to shoot some videos , we got a few good looking days coming soon. Run some , CK, make a few adjustments. Run some more.

My little test fuel tank has a hole, no wonder she won't start. I ran down my field box battery trying to start that NovaRossi T35plus.21.Back to the drawing board. LOL

Been to the pond, the 12 Zippkit rigger ran very well. The battery only lasted 3 tanks of nitro. My Nova Rossi.12 ran strong VERY FAST
The new .21 Nova Rossi DNS , needs some more loosening up. I will bench start with the prop.short runs let it cool down between starts The battery crisis is over I had 2 sets of 2/3 AAA 400
I have a 6 pack of 400 mil-amp ,my battery only lasted 3 tanks before it died NOW I am good to go, it fits inside that .12 Zippkit rigger Getting my .21 up & running still a little tight on startup.

I could use a little direction.............

Zipp had a booth at the Toledo expo. I purchased this kit there and can't wait to start putting it together.

It has been quite awhile since I have ripped up the water (15+ years). I need advice on possible marine engine choices. I would like to be able have some choices to compare specs with. A lot seems to have changed as far as manufacturers of marine engines. I don't see much availability or I am looking in the wrong place? Any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Thanks for the information. I purchased all the hardware when I was there at the show. So from a hardware standpoint all I am short at this point is a prop, engine, header and pipe.

I opened the kit today and was short a sponson plate on both riggers. So I called Joe and he is shipping out the plates to me.

I will start putting it together here within the next week.


What kind of difference will I see if I opt for 35 plus over the Top 5? Is it worth the extra if I intend on racing? I know there is a point of diminishing returns, question is where it lies.

Sorry Speed is pricey , how $$ [fast ]$ do you want to go . Add in some custom built bearing , custom racing carb, custom props, racing conrod , you can also send your engine out for a mod , I didn't add the price. the 35 plus 21 is a great engine . Glenn has more than the web site shows , so ask

Its not a money issue. I learned years ago if you can't put the ponies to work then they are a waste. That was why I was asking. Obviously the issue is not as prevalent as I thought. I was leaning towards the 35 plus or the 21 Long just not sure where the trade off is from a performance standpoint. I didn't know the Top 12 even existed till you mentioned. I will call Glenn and pick his brain. Thanks for the info!

My 2 cents on .21 engines.... the 35+ ISNT worth the extra money when compared to the NR. I say this because a guy I spend my time testing with has one, and this is his feeling, and he's posted this before.
However there is 1 more option.... Al Hobbs has the AA .21 engines (custom made for him by Rossi) which has some cool features. It is more than the NR but may be worth the extra.
I'm building a JAE .21, and putting a NR in it.... because I already have the engine($$).... otherwise, personally, I'd be getting the .21 AA.
