Default Heeeeeeeeeeelllllllllpppppppp

Hey, Today the clutch/flywheel came loose on my Kyosho GX15 engine....This caused the crankshaft to lock up....which bent the crankshaft, bent and broke the conrod and chipped the piston skirt. Chances are from this type of force there could be cracks in the crankcase. The engine is a write off.

I want to get a new engine, preferrably O.S. or anyother good engine .12-.18 size. What should i get??

Default new motor

i will assume you want to stay with a pull start. as far as ease of setting and reliability, you can't go wrong with a cv-15x (os). there are more powerful motors out there but the cv-15 will have a little more hp than the gx-15.

Funny that, I looked at towerhobbies. com and picked out the OS CV-X 15 short shaft.
