you will find a wealth of information on these forums , some good and some you need to weed through


if you post what kind of car you are buying you will get a better response that should be accurate .


are you looking forr a big block nitro engine ? small block ?


do you have a 1/10th scale vehicle ? 1/8th scale vehicle ? or something different?

plus 21-7fms w/ 9853ss/41005 if you really like alot of power

plus 21-4C w/ 9853ss/41005 if you want good controlable/useable power .

if you want both in the same engine use the P5XL/XLT , this engine has been a favorite of novarossi fans for years and is adjustable to just about any track / track condition and by pipeset / clutching / plug / gearing , etc.

if you are looking for econo , check out the n21bf limited or n21b09 , great little 3 ports for around 150$ .

happy motorin',
monty

axe rossi are not too popular , i cant say either way if its a lack of quality or not . i have seen there rods and not impressed by the quality there myself.

i deal in novarossi because it is a product i believe in , excellent quality and excellent design.

Well it didn't really want to let me use the built in image upload. I tried Imageshack, didn't seem to work.

I'm not sure what fits what. Are there different kinds of fittings for different cars?

It's a 1:10 scale on/offroad buggy.

Mind Reader, what size engine is on it now? .18? You'll need a small block for the 1:10 scale. Something like an O.S 18 CVR

Ok guys, noob question. If you look at my engine, and how the throttle is controlled (a little grooved piece of metal), how do I change this to what most other engines come with? The little ball thing instead of a groove.

You would have to make some kind of custom throttle linkage. You have a rotary style carb, I would just stay with an engine that offers a rotary carb.
