Fit this engine in a Losi LST XXL 2 to replace the gas engine which was troublesome. Took a bit of modifying the flywheel and clutch but that would need to be done whatever engine you use. As for the engine itself, it is strong from low end to mid range. Top end not tried yet as I've only run 1 litre through on the break in period but you can feel the massive potential of the power this thing has.
Once first started it has started first pull every time and responds to mixture tuning very well.
If you buy one of these it's a good idea to tie a bigger knot in the pull start cord as mine pulled through second pull and I spent an hour piecing the pull start back together again. Would have thought such a big engine would also come as a roto start selling with the pull start but doesn't which I will rectify as soon as I can.
All prices are in AUD.
