Default MBX5T and Losi 427 Spin Start combo?

Is it possible to mount a Losi 427 Spin Start engine on a MBX5T Prospec?

yes...but you will have to hack up the engine mount as well as put spacers under the engine......putting a roto engine is a truggy is not something people usually want to do, so there is no real engine mount made for that purpose......

a friend of mine runs that motor in an old sportweks turmoil buggy. i believe it came rtr. if you could find a set of theese you may be in luck. the sportwerks line has been discontinued for a while now sow you may have to do a lot of digging to find a set. good luck in your search. Mark

unfortunately I wouldn't know.... I don't intend to sound bad here, but you couldn't pay me enough to want to run a pul/roto engine in a Truggy...so that is a mod I wouldn't even consider........ I absolutely hate the inconvenience and unreliability of OWB equipped engines....... the link you posted looks like it would work tho, so just follow what that guy did and cut away the engine mount............ Be aware your likely going to see that Mach have huge issues with the RPM its going to hit in the truggy, the OWB inside does not handle the high RPM's well and will start digging into the backside of the conrod...OWB do fine in low RPM MT's, but they cause all sorts of issues being spun high in the truggies, that is one of the reasons you seldom see any OWB's in buggies and truggies.....I am not trying to tell you not to do it, as I already know your mind is made up, but after a couple of gallons and your rod snaps your going to see exactly why I am recommending against it....However the link you posted is exactly how your going to have to do things.....good luck and keep us updated !
