Default Engine crank silicone?

Hi anyone could tell me the type of silicone is used to fill the crank? Could you use sikaflex?
Cheers

While most people hardly feel the difference with or without the silicone I wonder what noticeable difference your secret stuff will give.

The difference is not in the performance but the quality and finished result form the different silicones.

Sorry wont be there, Kendall has no desire to run the Mnrc races. Maybe Ftr, he really likes the effort Sean puts into his races.

I could tell you but then I would have to....

Like Lance said, it is not better just easier to work with. As for a guy to buy some silicone for him self, be prepared to spend $25.00 to $35.00 if you get a good deal, do 2 motors and then next time a year later buy another tube because it gets hard. You have to do alot of motors to make it worth while.
