Default O.S. 18TZ in a Losi XXX-NT

I found an O.S. .18TZ complete with rotary carb and standard threaded shaft.

Will this work with the XXX-NT? The engine comes with a pull start, but I want to remove it because I will be using a starter box.

If this is not a good engine, what is? I'm not competing, just having fun with it.

It's an excellent engine. It should fit, but I think you may need to cut the crank to fit the Losi truck. It's simple to cut it, so if you don't mind doing that, you'll have a wheelie monster on your hands. Beware that it's going to put some hut on your tranny. That engine makes a LOT of power.

It should fit, but I have a quick question... Are you racing, or just bashing?

For racing, that thing is going to be a handful. I have an .18 cvr in mine, which is much less powerful than the TZ. It is VERY difficult to control on the track, and with any traction, it will easily wheelie over backwards.

If you're just bashing, it should be a lot of fun.

Thank you both for the quick response! I've decided to pass on the 18TZ. I'm not going to race competitively, just with a couple friends at local construction sites, etc. I'm going to sell the XXX-NT and opt for a 1/8 4WD buggy.
