What gets me is other modders that try to tell these guys they fully balance the cranks. And for us that actually know this isnt possible it gets annoying... I think thats where German was coming from with his original posts about it. I honestly dont think he ment to argue. my .02
I agree with you on every single sentance you put. I don't want to talk about what moddifyers are telling to people-this is not my field.
Try and learn is always worth in my opinion. If you don't try you never learn.
I don't want to tell you what to do or teach you , I am just suggesting-never stop trying!!!!!
German Miscle didn't try to argue here and I never take it as argument. He just wanted to know, because what I sad was different from what he heard before-I don't see anything wrong with that. I tryed to expalne how we do balancing-then it is up to every racer to decide if he is taking it or not.

Edward and Colt, you guys said it, if you don't try you wont get anywhere. Even if you fail, at least you would understand the process better.

Who knows, you might use that failure to devise a different method that may eventually work.

I wish they would continue this series. I would love an instruction article like this for the OS RG .21 and some of the other commomly used budget engines.

Hi Mugenb.
Not neccessarely planes motors are torque and not RPM. It is depend of aplication-for airbatic you realy want to torq and you don't want to engine start winding up, for Pilon racing-they want to have winding engine.
Please send me pics of our crank and sleeve, I might be able to suggest something by looking on the pics. You can post them here as well, I hope nobody will be affended by those pics . I am not familiar with COMO S 40 motor, will look on the net, may be can find some info on them. But pics defenetly will be helpfull.

No much info I can find on this engine, I just found is was made by Super Tigre long time ago. Usualy they were 2 ports design and they were very unoficient engines, but in the mean time they were work horses and one of the best on its time. So to suggest you something, I defenetly will need pics-I had only one engine Super Tigre G15 and it was in 1977, I berely remember that engine, I do remmeber I used for while on control line speed with side exhaust mounted tuned pipe, I don't remmebr where I get it from and what happened with that.
