Serpent RTR Novarossi P3 SX - Pullstart Delete, backing plate SOLVED
Had a question, helping a buddy out who has a Serpent Cobra GT RTR GP. He asked me about the ability to use a Starter Box, as he was tired of the yanking, and having seen me start my 1:8 Pan Car with a box wanted the same convenience.
I looked through his manuals, for the car and Engine and have not seen any optional numbers or parts. Then I look at Serpents Site and see that under the product info half way down in the Engine description it states that Novarossi offers a Special backing plate! Is that the case as I have not seen one?
Is this going to be a case of grinding the pull start extension off the crank, polishing the crank wrist pin face and putting on a Non-PS Backing plate.
Also given that I have not seen much of the P3 Mill is the P5 case identical, would I be able to use a P5 backing plate? Also would the Turbo Button from a base P5 work in his motor. I have many turbo plugs and have not run standard plugs in a motor in over 6 years - so I have many spares that he can use instead of ordering or getting ripped off at the LHS.
Any help would be great.
Serpent USA Stated Novarossi does not make such a plate.
(Update per Serpent USA - P5 Backing plate is too big, and as such will not work)
-if you can't get ahold of me I am probably working, and that's out in the ocean. So please have patience when trying to correspond. - Thank you.
