[QUOTE=sly6t;10216095]cant wait to see the pics bro you will put up .. and to see lil changes u will make .. also gunna be good to see how the drive train holds up with the foamies + NOVA .......... if i was u , i would buy a few extra belts and main gears (cos there cheap as ) from hobbyking just incase ya need em .. nothing worst than breaking sumthing then the wait for parts.

cant wait ... lol[/

I ordered the extra belts and gears back in DEC/11 I new they would be needed. Thinkig of converting to chain, but thats going to be awhile. I'll wait till I burnout what I have before starting on that setup. I cut out some 2.5mm aluminum for the engine plate, mangled it with a dremal but its on and will do for now. I'm going to have to find a shop to machine that part for me. Hopefully I'll get some pics up soon.

Here are some pics of the basic setup, the engine is a Novarrossi CX12 with a Dark Metal aluminum Roto. I use to race it in my nitro Bike, the pipe was from a modified bike I had. the servo's are the HK ones that come with the Kart, I took them off my son's karts. I swapped out the servo's on my son's kart and put some hobbypartz servo's. I believe there Pro-T, looks like you used the same servo's. I'm still waiting for the brake parts, I ran it for a bit without the brake today. Just wanted to see how it rolled it did fine.The four stroke is what I would like to put in it, maybe later some vid's to come.

I made a test video today but can't post it. This site says I don't have enough post to use URL'S from another site. You would think they would allow youtube.

You have to have a pull start type motor. I think you can pickup the roto at gotnitro.com.
