Talking Best Super Nitro Engine/Pipe??

My friend got a new SNRS4, the on-road belt drive version. What is the best replacement engine for the weak .15 that comes with it? Also need a pipe, and a pull start engine would be best. Mainly used for street bashing.

hi dave, its a great car, only a bit restricted in the engine options due to the crankshaft

right now im using an os .12cv-r and a picco pro version pipe, the os its quite fast and strong, it's not a screaming machine but if you're only bashing it should be good enough

For the SNRS4 your gonna want a nice .15 engine or a .12(MT12 will be best) with lots of torque to get it moving since its not a 10th scale sedan and does weigh more than one. A OS .15cvr, Picco .15 (if you can still find one), or a Fantom FR!5 will be a nice fit for it. As for a pipe, Ofna, RB, or Novarossi pipes work well.

Thanks guys! What style crank is specific to the SNRS4? I see O.S. has a new .18 too, and since he doesn't really plan to race it.....????

For direct replacement you need a "standard crank", which is threaded. Be very careful because the T-max style crank is also threaded. There is also the "SG" style crank which most high output motors have the SG crank. You should be able to find the standard crank easier though since you are looking for a motor with a pull start.

the os .18 engine should give you plenty of power to move the big super, however you will have to buy one with rotary carb since there isn't a version with threaded shaft and slide carb

as rapidboy said you need an engine with standard crankshaft,i think they're also called "short Shaft" the tmaxx uses the same but its shorter, i don't think you can use the maxx shaft style in the snrs4

if you want a pullstart engine this should be fine

a non pullstart

the description in the non pullstart engine must be wrong since it says it has a pilot shaft or sg shaft

for the pipe this is the one im using and its very nice
