You should do just fine as long as you install a decent clutch on the motor. If you try it with the original parts, I can already tell you that you will have problems.

You need at the least a hard spring on the clutch.

I have a BLACK K-Factory 1.8 spring coming - standard clutch shoes Black type and i have weights either 2 in each shoe or should i put 1 in each shoe?

now i know we talked about the clutch gap, tension and so on so on, but lets get a basic guideline setup off the begginer, same with the tune!!!

It's not an onroad car M7H - I think the FT pipe will be more than ample, unless of course he wants thefront wheels in the air all the time!

Isn't it?.. really hard to tell from the picture....

Yes, this might be fast enough, but maybe you will not get all the possible power available in this engine with this pipe....
And probably not with the clutch on that car.......

Excuse me, your right... pleas ignore my remark then....
Yes, I think it will run better with an Orion pipe set, but as this engine actually is for on-road racing, I think there is no (user) experience with this pipe set...
So maybe it will run ok....

The only problem I think, might be your clutch.
It is not visible from the picture, but I guess the clutch is a standard centrifugal 3 or 4 shoe type, which is not adjustable, can you clarify this?

The air filter is fine, it's better to have a bigger one than a smaller one^^

You can try your pipe, it should work ok.

I recommend using regular CRF plugs, they are super durable too.

I have been testing with a 2wd truck and the .12 CRF engine, ran pretty good, nice top speed, definitely way more punch than the original .18 engine. Depending on the grip level you might want to use a stiffer clutch setup and/or different gearing.

thats correct, it is the stock clutch that comes w/ the factory team gt2 kit, and another quick question, is it uncommon to see this mill in a 1/10 scale gt truck? Should I sell this mill for one geared strictly towards taking/enduring the rigors of off road? And should I get an adjustable .12 clutchset, if so which one should I get? thanks for your help, as this is my first NON pull start mill
