From what I hear they are made by SH engines in Taiwan here is a link to a comparable engine: http://www.shengines.com/TECHDATA_PT2004-XB.htm

The 350 is a great little engine for running at your local club races, on any given day you could see some pros running it. Want to make this engine even a little better, slap the turbo button conversion on it and watch it sing.

Default 350

I bought one of these off ebay new for cheap, pulled from a RTR kit. Great little engine for a buggy. There is a thread on the losi forums for it with some good information. Some complain about the carb, but I haven't had any issues.

Yeah from what I hear these engines are great. PM Matt Chester on here, he runs the 350 with the turbo head conversion.

the only issue w/carb is that plastic ball link that it comes with. joke. replace it with a mach26 metal piece and it wont strip the threads b/c u had to get gorilla on it. seriously believe the plastic fatigues from the heat cycles and the slide heating up and helpin it pop off. the mach piece is 6bubx. problem solved. turbo head and re11 pipe and LOOK OUT!!!
