    NOVAROSSI 2.5 Engine

    I bought a used nitro slash. everything was in pieces. The motor that came with it was just shot. Carbs broke, the piston shoots through the sleeve. Its just seen better days. I know about OS 21TM engine. Rave reviews. But I just want to know if this Novarossi 2.5 engine is a drop in motor, just curious. I'm just researching engines at the moment. Thank you!

    Be aware that some OS buggy engines have nickel plated cylinder liners which will not last long. Choose wisely and look for one with a Chrome plated liner. I believe the Nova Rossi has a Chrome plated liner.

    If you haven't bought the Novarossi yet, do it! I have one in my 2-speed Slash and it is fantastic. Easy to tune, holds a tune and flat-out screams. Can't beat it for ~$155 with pipe and header.

    I've been looking at the ROSSI for my 2.5 T-Maxx
