Default How do I put a SG engine on a rc10GT?

Just like the subject line.... I know that the RTR has one, but it's not the same diamiter as others. If posible, I would like to use NTC3 parts.

Default sg in a gt

i bought a new gt and had 5 sg motors that i would have loved to use in the truck. i found out the hard way that the ntc3 parts do not work because the clutch bell is wider than the gt and the gears won't line up. the losi parts do not work. in fact i don't think anything will work. even if you could get a bell to fit on the sg. i had alot of knowledable people look at my truck before i gave up. save yourself alot of headache and get a threaded shaft motor.

I thought I read in one of the mags, that one of the pros were using a 3-shoe clutch off of a NTC3. That's why I thought that someone had pulled it off.

I know of one AE driver that has put the NTC3 clutch on a GT, but it required a specially made clutch bell. I don't know of anyone that has done it, with available OTC parts.

Figures. I don't have anything against the stock set up, I just wanted to be able to use SG shafted engines I have here at the house.

it can be done. there are lots of guys here that run ovals in parking lots that have sg shaft .12 or .15 small block engines in there gts. i think you have to use tmaxx parts, like the clutch bell, flywheel, etc. and raise the engine with the rtr mount. pm me if you are serious and i'll ask my friend what parts are needed.

I run Gt`s on dirt ovals and to run a sg crank motor I use XXXnt motor mounts to pull the motor back. YOu just have to cut slotted motor holes instead of the gt style.
