Default Need advice on a chassis for an OS.12 LD engine

I recently won an OS.12 LD engine on Ebay, with the plans of running it on my NTC3. Well the motor is too big to run on that chassis and i have found out that its designed for a certian class of chassis (RS4super Nitro sized). I know the super rs4 won't accomodate the engine, but i know that both kyosho and tamiya both had chassis's in that size. Does anyone know the chassis's that will run this engine? I know that its not a power house, but think it would be a cool pavement pounder and a fun car for wasting a day and fuel.

Thanks for any info on a chassis, that will fit this engine. If nothing will work I might make an adapter plate and fit it to my Tmaxx

the motor lays down horizontal in stead of vertical like most conventional motors. It was ment for a car kyosho came out with back in the day...suppose to have a better center of gravity. I doubt it'll fit the tc3, but hey, you never know...lol I think thats why it's called a LD.

I was looking on Ebay last night and saw that the Kyosho Super Ten has an alternate bolt pattern, for the motor and the spacing looks good for the LD. Now to get one and see

Totally different engine. That was a CZ-R or CZII, layed over with the mounts.


Crazy, that engine was designed for the Kyosho super10. All Kyosho 1/10 scales (every one I have) has that bolt pattern... but getting it to fit is another story. Its big and its heavy!

The only other car I had one in is the TR-15. It first came out as a buggy, but later came out as a truck and a rally car.

Thanks Ed Anderson, I now know what to look for. Like i said, its for a purely BS basher, I know its heavy. The LD is no stronger than its CV partner so its just for fun. Can you tell me if the Superten has a two speed? The one i saw on Ebay had a single speed. There is also the idea of mounting it to the Tmaxx with an adapter plate, that would be a fun easy running MT for bashing

correction, the LD is weaker then the CV.... it produces a whopping 0.56bhp @ a mind boggling 29,000 RPM. No power, no rpm, it wouldn't be smart to put it in a tmaxx. On road car to putt around yes, tmaxx, not smart.

The .12CV was also around .56, as well. I recall an article in RC car Action, where theyused an LD (possibly a .15, pretty sure it was a .12) in place of the stock pro .15. this was before the 2.5 came out

HAHA, i totally forgot about he .12cv I was thinking of the cvr 15's and 18's.....I don't know why you're so insistent on using this motor, but what ever floats your boat. There's a reason they didn't take off when it came out. I personally would just go with the CVR 18.

You're right, it has the same power as the CV12, CZ-12Z. It uses the same P/S and rod as them too. Crank is different as the intake valve is shifted 90 deg. But it weighs 1.5 times as much.

Yes you can get a 2sp for the super 10 (3sp too if you can find one.. good luck) You can get a 2sp for the TR-15 too.

It does look cool

Why do people insist on running gold tub RC10's when the B4 is so much better? I just think it would be nice to have a fun car with an intresting story, or different engine. As said, I know it will be a bit of a dog, but it would be different than anything else in the parking lot
