well you dont want, a slide carb on a 2wd truck because the throttle reponsed is too sensitive on those trucks.

i used to run a gt2, with a dynamite .12 platnuim engine with a sg pilot shaft.

im not sure if you can use a sg shaft on a nt .

Thanks fellas, I know you can switch the linkage around for a slide carb setup but i just cant seem to get a definate answer on the sg crank thing, i'm not opposed to the all-threaded/rotory engines they just have alot of SG/slide Picco .12's on ebay for cheap all of the time...
