im pretty sure the ones off the jammin will fit you can go to ebay and buy the whole set up for about 20 or 25 bucks. just type in jammin x2 and scroll threw the pages and youll see someone selling them brand new off a kit.

Actually a Losi bell WON'T work. It is longer than the others, your motor mounts would put it too far forward to engage your spur gear properly. And the OFNA is a slightly different diameter inside... you should only run those with the OFNA flywheel and clutch shoes.

Get one of those cheap Racers' Edge vented ones- about $10. That's all I run. Either 13 or 14 tooth should be good... 13 for bottom end punch, 14 higher for top speed. Note that having a single speed setup (all real race buggies are single speed, including older designs like the Hyper 7.) (Good car for an older one BTW...)

As for the LST2 clutch setup... I have no idea what it is like. If it is like the Losi 8ight clutch it will work fine with that bell. (I used to run Mugen bells on my Losi, with a motor mount that moved the motor forward to compensate for the shorter bell.)

Contrary to what folks are saying... Losi's Mach 427 engines are pretty decent engines. They aren't really good BUGGY engines though, too much bottom end power and not enough RPM.

Do you have a starter box? Or do you plan to use pullstart or shaft start? That makes a difference in what engine to recommend. (I HIGHLY recommend a starter box.)

The plan will most likely be a rotostart setup for know, due mostly to the fact that I have one in the garage. I wouldnt rule out a starter box in the future though. For know I just want to get it running and have acces to the 427. For later on im liking the looks of the nova 21 bf.

Next question, can I use the flywheel I have or should a buy a whole kit? If the kit is the answer, will that jammin one fit? or any other reccomendations compatible with the 427? Thanks for all the help so far guys

Would the novarosse N21R-BF be a much better motor? I want something nice and fast but with good corners. I started looking at the 427 and Id have to shim up my mounts to clear the roto start and I really didnt want to do any customizing until im familiar with it.

i would go with the nova if you can swing it. its a much better engine and will last alot longer and it wont be so hard on the diffs. also look at the werks b3 its the same price and just as good if not better than the nova bf.
