Default rc10gt engine mounting Q

Hey, I wanted to install an OS CV-R .15 (standard shaft) on a GPM double deck rc10gt chassis. I was wondering if the shaft would need to be cut, if so would it also need to be rethreaded, and second would it be possible to just mount the engine further back or would there not be enough space to mount it as far back as required. Thanks.

you would have to cut the crank. In order to do this, you have to put on the collet and flywheel. There is a special nut that associated has that you thread onto the crank and run the dremel right next to that to get the correct amount of crank. When you take that off, it will clean up the threads so you won't have to worry about re-threading or anything like that.

Associated Nut

Is that the nut you're talking about? It says its for .12 engines but I'm not sure if it would work on a .15 engine. The .12 and .15 OS series use the same exact crankcase so that's why i'm wondering. And would I have to get a certain flywheel and clutch assembly or is the HPI setup i'm using okay? I'm just wondering because the HPI flywheel has a raised lip area seen here
HPI Flywheel
and I just want to be sure that it will leave enough space on the shaft. If the HPI one is fine, would I have to get a new collet?

Stuff

This looks like everything I would need actually, seems it would work with the OS. The only thing missing are clutch springs.

the first link you posted is what you put on the crankshaft after you have cut the crank.

The second link of the hpi flywheel is a no no. Stick with the associated flywheel.

the third link has everything you need, that little black nut you see is what you put on the crank as a cutting guide. I believe the associated 2 shoe clutch does not use speings. Go with the MIP 4n1, no brainer to setup and works really good, and cheap too.

MIP

Yea I was actually looking at that earlier today as an alternative. I'll go with it then since you recommended it. It looks 50x easier than using stupid clutch pins also heh.

with the associated flywheel though, you will have to take a hammer and beat the pins back a little bit, its not hard to do, just make sure you do it.
