FVSS have announced the release of their Novarossi-based Meteora .21 nitro on-road engine. The latest creation of their team, the engine is based on a Novarossi extra long stroke engine and it is completely hand-tuned, to find a perfect balance between performance and fuel consumption. The engine uses high-quality components such as steel or optional ceramic bearings, as well as the newest piston and sleeve combo with the R4 ’18 conrod. The engine is available tuned for the use with 16 percent or 25 percent nitro fuel and also as pre-run-in version.
Coming from Project RC is an extra hard on-road clutch spring. The item is made of high carbon steel wire and underwent several hardening processes which results in exceptional durability over a long time and thus a reliable clutch setting run after run which is further helped by the machining of the inner portion which improves the seat of the spring. The extra hard spring is usable for both .12 and .21 engines and it is available now.

Included with the board comes a 150cm USB power cable and thanks to the very low power consumption it can be powered by a simple power bank.
