one problem after another...this is getting old fast...now the engine will not fit cos the pull start is to big for the engine mounts. what mounts will work? do i need to shave material to make it fit?

Are you saying that the engine mounts are that low that the pullstarter touch the chassis? I don't know of any different engine mounts but you could always buy a bump starter like this one http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXRS98&P=7

they dont touch the chassy. the pull start hits the mount and wont allow it to sit on the mount, about 1/16" off the mount and about 1/8" to go till the holes, engine and mount holes, line up


what about getting one of these?

is there a smaller pull start for the o.s. engine?

I think you would still have the problems you are facing now with that starting system because it requires that you attach the gearbox onto the backplate which is probably the same size as the pullstarter.

You could try grinding some meat down on the mounts

Good to see you you got it mounted.

As for tuned pipes i really don't know which one would be good for you.AE, Losi and CVEC make some nice ones for .12 engines http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...es&FVPROFIL=++ Losi pipes can be found on www.stormerhobbies.com

Just remember that a small-thin pipe will be more effective down low.

A short-stubby pipe will be more effective in the higher RPMs.

I may have the wrong way around though.
