Default 4 stroke... Let's see um!!!

Okay... I know the story... It won't work, it shouldn't work, they aren't as fast and yada yada yada... But I love working on my cars... in fact, I love building them, taking them apart, and rebuilding them... I think even more than I enjoy running them...

That being being said... I have a real itch to drop a 4 stroke in a chassis and see what I can come up with... My questions are... A) What else aside from gearing needs to be changed, and how exactly do I have to gear it... B.) Who else here has done this type of conversion... C.) I want to do this because I think its cool... that's it... Not to race or any of that fun stuff... So with that being said, I want to drop an aircraft four stroke into an on-road 1/10 and have some fun with it... What is your best advice for doing this and what do I have to do to gear this correctly???
