Default SG Shaft

I'm guessing that this is the SG (pilot) shaft - can you please tell me if I'm correct?

And that this is the correct engine for the centax clutches?

Cheers

Ash

yes- that is a SG shaft. Any centax will work fine on that engine/shaft design.

This is a much better engine, but a tad pricier:

Hey thanks guys, I thought I was right with the SG shaft.

Re- the other engines, yeah I'd love the power but I have to keep the engine under 1hp for gas tourer - the os tg is about as close as you can get without going over.

Cheers guys

WOW!! That is the most rediculous rule I have ever seen!
Perhaps well-intentioned, but ill-conceived.
There are no standards by which manufacturers are held accountable for hp claims. HP claims cannot be compaired from one manufacturer to another.

I think its a great idea. Like a Spec class to control costs. Kind of like stock electric racing.
