Default Can I race a .25 engine in a buggy?

I got a Novarossi Roma .25 and a nb48.4, is it possible to race this engine in a buggy? If so what clutch and bell should I run?

The engine fits in a buggy and you can probably run one or two teeth bigger on the clutchbell but with racing there are rules and most rules say max .21 engine......

Yeah, I was going to say, for local/club races, you’d have to at least check with the Race Organizer - at a sanctioned event, however, no you won’t, for the reason Roelof noted above.

I don't think anyone will mind anywhere. Go for it.

Loss of mileage is greater than any gains.
