Default New Engine

Hi All,

Just joined up and need a bit of information regarding a new engine.

I have a Tamiya TGS with a FS-12SS I believe which I use for bashing and having a laugh with, however the engine has gone kaput!

I am looking for a new engine to put in with say max of 100.

I know I need a side exhaust and rotary carb, can I use my old exhaust?

I have seen the HPI Nitrostar T3.0 and the G3.0 but I am unsure of what one is suited.

Cheers All,
Simon

What have you done to find an answer by yourself?

With 1 minute google I came to this site:

A nitrostar .15 is a direct fit and while the .18 engines are also a smallblock they must fit as well.

I saw that, but as its a different car and a different engine, i wanted to make sure?

So really I still dont know because the engines I posted up above each has a different shaft coming out, one long and one short......

best bet is to take it to a hobby shop and ask. Most people on rctech are more so racer type rc enthusiasts so maybe they won't know what will fit this car.
