Few questions from a n00b
Ive been offered an old superten rolling chassis for a price which cannot be knocked back... its basically complete... but the engine is shagged (pull down revealed broken conrod and associated damage). The chassis is old - but the thing has hardly been used. My passion is for offroad so i wont be looking to race this thing (i doubt there's classes for supersize these days?? Not in south australia anyways...) just something to run around the tennis courts or bash at local tracks.
Fairly new to the nitro scene... have been trawling around the beginner forums but failed to find answers to a few burning questions. Would be much appreciated if i could get some expert advice from you guys.
Mostly relating to engine selection... now - the engine it has appears to be the standard kyosho unit. .15, pull start, side exhaust, slide carby.
Will any engine fit - assuming it has a side exhaust and a slide carby? i.e. do all two stroke engines basically mount up in a similar fashion? Are there different length/size output shafts that need to be considered? How interchangable is this stuff? Any risk that, for example, the clutch/pinion assembly wont go on or linkages wont hook up or mounts wont fit?
The difference between slide and rotary carbs... is it just a matter of changing the way the linkages hook up to the servo/carby? Or is it vitally important that i get one with a slide carby?
Any advice/links/comments... or even abuse! will be much appreciated.
