....Really small stuff I've seen when I was a kid I saw a old man that made .010...he'd put them in little boats he hand made...I don't remember all but I think he was trying to sell them to companies like KB. COX . Mc Coy....this was back in the early 70's..never heard of him after that...but I do say the engines he made were tiny....I wished I had pic's

I emailed Comanpagnucci asking where its possible to purchase their car gas burners, so ill post what they say. I dont think it should cost any more than a decent .28 ~$220
Cool, I would really like to know a price for these things...I might buy one and test it in one of my cars, then do a full-length product review on it for my website (www.pxpracing.com).

Yep, Cox .049 and there are millions of them around. But they also have the Cox .010 if you need really small . The next one up is the .020.....
do you have the link to the .010 engine? i would buy it.

Actually it's quite a bit smaller...[8D]
(The .020's piston is about the size of a pencil eraser )

lol I happen to have one right next to me(had it for a school project). The back plate has a need in the back and it also controols the anout of air into then engine too. Never ran it but im shure it wont run since its old and hasint has oil in it, but i hear you can run diesil in them. But might break the crankpin since the compression is SOOOO high.

There are aftermarket throttles available though...for the .010 .020 .049 .051 .09, and .15 Cox engines.
They wrap around the exhaust ports of the sleeve...( a variable restriction of the exhaust )
There are also carbs available for the TD .049/.051

Take a look here:

There's a whole forum devoted to the small stuff
