I beleive you need an motor with an SG shaft, so that one wont fit. Plus the GT2 comes with a rear exhaust header, if you get a side exhaust motor (like that CVR) you will need to buy a new header (which is easy to get). The carb on all motors can be flipped around to fit different cars. SO looks for a SG shaft, rear exhaust, rotary carb engine. I think you could use a slide carb (probably doesn't include the linkage for it though) on it as well, but the rotary carb is easier to drive.

The GT2 will fit other threaded engines like the CV-R. Just the parts in the box are for SG crank, rear exhaust. The truck can accomodate side exhaust motors also with the purchase of the correct manifold.

You will need to get the #2312 SG adapter clutch nut for threaded crank. Then get whatever AE manifold for your engine. The included pipe will work in either case.

Kurt,

Will the current part #7737 Rear-Exhaust Manifold be used in the kit?

Thanks
Kevin Boyle

Just grind down the engine-brace. It works fine and you can use whatever engine you want.

I'm running it on a dirt oval track with a EDM body. I put Nitro TC3 shocks up front and put the front shocks in the rear.

I would be more concerned about the lack of brake linkage...

I can lock the brakes with easy. No problems and everything is holding up. The only thing I'm dealing with is loosing the cvd pins. But Heat-shrink took care of that problem.
