Actually, you should re-read it again. What popracer said was that you can mount a non-p\s engine on p\s mounts and use a p\s flywheel and it will still work. You made the assumption that when he said to mount a non-p\s engine, that you'd be using a non-p\s flywheel.

There is no way that the flywheel will sit below the chassis if the mounts match the flywheel. That's the point that was trying to be made.

Default Rod_B;

Thank you Rod.

There is ONE Truck that actually has the flywheel slightly below the bottom of the chassis. This is the RC10GT with P/S flywheel and mount. It is fine until you snag a board or pipe or slap a landing, then the engine is killed by the flywheel touching.

Yes this Is the Way I Had read it "You made the assumption that when he said to mount a non-p\s engine, that you'd be using a non-p\s flywheel."....... Yes I do Agree With This "There is no way that the flywheel will sit below the chassis if the mounts match the flywheel. That's the point that was trying to be made."
The way I understood It was it wouldnt Matter How it was Installed mixed matched. Sorry For any Misunderstanding I may have had with the post.
