Is the OS TZ part number 11373 with slide carb, pilot shaft, and 3 ports the correct roar legal engine for this car?

If it is do I have to cut the shaft? I read on here somewhere you needed an SG shaft..
thank you.

old to off-road nitro but new to on-road nitro..

Thank you guys for your input.
Yeah I guess this is not the right thread for a question like this.
Still, thank you for your suggestions/inputs.

Hope to get me a nitro kit soon

Most of the off road nitro ie 1/10 trucks use threaded (pilot) shaft motors. The SG shaft is longer so you won't need to cut anything. you maybe able to convert one of your engines with threaded shaft to an SG shaft either with an adapter or by replacing the crank with an SG one depending on engine.

the 720 is better than the 710 yes but the mtx4 is still easyer to drive and work on,lets say this the 720 is easyer to work on than the RRR and it drives better too.

So I assume you've owned and raced all of them, right? Anyway, for the guy who was asking about the cars (driftkid), you can't go wrong with the 2 cars, just go with whatever you feel will have better support (parts, at the track, and online) in the long run .

Without having access to the car is hard to tell. From what I can see, the engine is mounted too much on an angle. If that is the only way to get a mesh, you might need to reconsider your gearing that allow you to mount the engine straight.

The engine is also mounted too much to the left. You are not getting full contact to the spurs.

No need to thread lock the pinion, just use the mugen tool to tighten it up.

Reposition the engine so the pinion gears get maximum contact to spur gears.

Unfortunately you need Mugen Pinion tools to tighten the pinion gears.

You can tighten the pinions barbaric style with plier ( with large teeth ) and rags. I don't recommend it because you risk to ruin the shape of clutch bell.

Infact I use bearing oil to tighten the pinions all the way down. I never get loose 1st gear problem.
