Nope, no flywheel or clutch parts came with my used 777. He sold the car separate from the engine, flywheel & clutch, and someone had already bought the engine, flywheel and clutch when I bought the car. Hence my search continues....

What do y'all think about putting a Mach .26 in a 777? Or would a Hyper .21 8 Port be a better match? I have both, the Mach is sitting on my workbench and the Hyper is in my MP5 that I'm getting ready to sell. Not sure which I want to sell with the MP5 and which I want to keep. Or if I should sell 'em both and get a different engine.

Geez...MP5????For an engine I would get an Italian mill.They may cost more but well worth it.If you are a beginner at racing I would suggest an O.S. RG.

The Fioroni Turbo Sliding Clutch!! And I got it for $40 shipped! I figured being that it was such a good deal and pretty much the same cost as a cheaper standard clutch (and even cheaper than the stock 777 clutch), I might as well get the Fioroni.

KanaiII, thanks for the engine advice. Why the OS RG over the other engines? More reliable? More powerful than other entry level motors? I've heard good things about the RG elsewhere, too. And why not go for a OS VZ-B or one of the italian motors right away if I can get a used one with not much fuel through it for the same price as a new OS RG?

Another question: I can't use the Mach .26 for racing, right? I have to use a .21 engine?

Good choice on the clutch, you will like it.

The RG is a great entry level engine. It has the right amount of power for the entry level driver. It is EASY to tune and at a 100.00 it is disposelable. Once someone learns the basics of tuning and can put down the extra power of the better engines then would be a good time to move up. Also IMO stay away from used engines! You will thank me later.

Most club tracks & races will allow the .26

My reasons for the O.S. RG are the same as what SpeedBump57 said.And also stay away from used engines.Unless you are buying it at a local track and you know the guy and seen and know how the engine is in person.Itailan mills are very powerful and if you are a beginner at driving and tuning then you won't be able to put the power to the ground and might ruin a 300 dollar motor.As opposed to the RG is only 100 bucks.Usually at club races its "Run what you brung".And also people won't usually need a .26 to be competitive.A .21 is plenty of power.
