Ielasi Tuned have released first information on their all-new competition conrods for Novarossi and OS-based engines. Machined from high-quality titanium and using highest quality self-lubricating bushing material, the conrods will greatly increase the engine performance while offering exceptional durability of all parts involved, including the conrod itself and the connection pin. The conrods will become available from mid-November in two variants for almost all .21 Novarossi and almost all .21 O.S. Engines.
Novarossi have introduced their all-new Mephisto.21 GT5 engine for 1/8th scale nitro GT classes.

Other features include a R4/18 lightweight conrod, Tungsten crankshaft balancing, and a specially machined crankcase drainage for better exhaust gas flow. The engine is available as standard steel bearing or ceramic ball-raced version.

1/10th 200mm Nitro Touring benchmark driver, Serpent’s Dominic Greiner has announced his departure from Italian engine manufacturer Novarossi. The former IFMAR 1/10th 200mm World Champion leaves behind a very fruitful 3-year campaign with the brand, that culminated in the 2016 Worlds title, and he has the following to say about his departure:
With the season hopefully starts soon I would like to announce that I will no longer race for Novarossi engines. It was a difficult decision for me but it’s time for a change. We had grateful three years together and could win some big events including my first world championship title 1:10 in Italy 2016. I want to thank the whole Novarossi factory for the trust and the support. Especially to Daniele Ielasi for the work at the track and the time for improvements. News will follow soon.
