Honest opinion. Unless you are well adapted to the roles of CAD/CAM, have the money to spend without getting bankrupted in the first week then stay clear.

I and a few colleagues do this for a living and it is not something you just jump into. You need contacts, machinery and a great imagination.

If you have pictures I will look and tell you whether you are on track or not

Just out of curiosity, why would you need custom engines? With all the .12s and .15s out there, you should probably just use what's available.

r/c paradise, I see you're in Glen Burnie, MD. I live in Columbia. We should hook up some time. I'd like to hear some of your ideas.

Sounds good. I'd like to see how a modded .12 or .15 compares to my XTM 24.7 powered RS4.
