Default O.S Engines 15CV

hey guys, im wanting to get a new engine that is not too expensive for my HPI RS4 3 Evo+. I have been looking at the OS 15CV.. it seems like a good engine but my question is that it doesnt say what type of crankshaft it has? and will this engine fit my car with the stock flywheel and clutchbell ??
also by the picture it looks like the carby s turend around backwards, because usally the thing that the trottle servo is on the left side of the engine isnt it ??? could some one help me with that ?? here is a link.

There are 2 types of crankshaft tip :

1. SG / pilot crankshaft : the crankshaft tip meant to be use with Centax Clutch Types. Most modern car kit use centax clutch types.





2. Standard crankshaft : the crankshaft tip meant to be use with regular clutch shoes. Most buggy and standard kit use these type.




I suggest you go with this instead with 15CV. : http://www.osengines.com/engines/osmg2104.html

18CV-RX ABC, just like in OS website.

http://www.osengines.com/engines/osmg2104.html


RX means Pull Start (Recoil Starter).

ABC means the materials for piston and sleeve : Alluminium, Bronze, Chrome

Can you call Tower Hobbies to make sure ?
