Questions?? AE 28 and LRP 28 SAME?

Hi, I bought a AE .28 with no backplate. Now I bought a backplate and one way for a LRP .28 which I was told was the same and it's too small for the block. Anyone know what gives?

Yep. The Associated .28 (.21 as well) is made by Thunder Tiger.

The LPR .28 is made by SH.

Strange. I put "associated .28" in the search on ebay and it came up with associated LRP .28 parts. Also the guy I bought it off said he took the backplate and installed it to his LRP .30...

Thunder Tiger owns Team Associated and supplies the RTR engines. LRP engines are distributed in the USA by Team Associated but they are not the same engines.

Yes, they are 2 completely different engines, the LRP is MUCH stronger than the AE .28 ... somewhere there was a misunderstanding between you and the guy, or he flat out lied to you.

The .28 and the .30 don't use the same block, but should fit in the same location.
