    Ken: I cannot wait to hear the Gas 2300 run with the right prop. It will sing even better when it gets broke in also. Best Regards Capt,n

    RE: Super tiger 2300- gas

    KI8FR,
    Many people would like to have a low cost, light weight, powerful gas motor to fly 120 sized planes. You get all of the usual benifits of gas, such as clean operation, lower fuel costs and very reliable operation. And as an added plus you can put the tank anywhere you want.

    RE: Super tiger 2300- gas

    Mine turns an APC 13 x 6 at 11,600 rpms. It doesn't have much time on it, so it could improve a bit.

    RE: Super tiger 2300- gas

    Hmmm, if my Super Tiger 2300 turned an APC 13 x 6 at only 11,600 rpms, I would be pretty bummed....

    Super Tiger .90 running on Gas/Glow 11,600.5 rpms with an APC 13 x 6.

    Ken, I have been here in Aripeka near Spring hill for a while. We are moving to the Ruskin Area Monday. PM me your phone number & I will call. Oh ...give me a best time for you when I call you. It is finally warming up now. Hope it stays that way. I am looking forward to seeing you & the Tiger collection. Best Regards Capt,n

    Shouldn't lose too much power on gas as compared to the recommended low nitro mix for the big Super Tigers. However, I would run it on Gas/Glow myself.

    You might offer that option in your sales Ken, as you could sell them much cheaper without the ignition....

    So yeah, how much??

    I just came across this post, I know its been there for a while, but I have a Super Tigre 3250 engine, made in Italy. I bought it at a swap meet and it did not have a carb. I put an ASP .91 carb on it, as this was recommended as a good carb for this engine. I had to make a sleeve for it to make it fit. I am just curious, what is a gas/glow conversion. I do not want to go the gas conversion route, as it seems to complicated. I would rather stick with the costly nitro fuel.

    Now I really like that idea. So basically I could put a Walbro carb on my Super Tigre 3250, and just go with the gas/glo fuel mixture?? No other changes?

    RE: Super tiger 2300- gas

    Well, not exactly. Without converting your Super Tiger to roller bearings on the rod/crankpin, you would need more oil. So it would be a bit of an experiment. The Gas/Glow mix comes out around a 32:1 overall oil mix more or less. The Super Tiger's that have not been converted to roller bearings are recommended to have 10% oil, which is of course, a 10:1 oil mix. I believe some guys here in the forum have run bushed rods as low as 16:1 oil, but one would sure want to be careful about doing that...

    More info on converting Super Tigers: www.lambertsrc.com

    BTW, I have a Super Tiger .90 converted with roller bearings, a Walbro carb, and running on Gas/Glow. Works great!

    RE: Super tiger 2300- gas

    I ran a ST3000 I converted to gas with a bushed rod on a 20:1 ratio using synthetic oil. Drilled an extra oil hole on the leading edge of the rod with a large chamfer @ the crank pin( have no clue if it really helped, but felt I had to do something). Flew it quite a while until I sold it and the plane. Easy conversion, ran about like my Homey 30cc.

    RE: Super tiger 2300- gas

    I couldnt decide if I wanted to use a Quadra 35 on my Stinger or get a carb for the ST 3250 and use it, in spite of the nitro consumption. I felt that the ST 3250 might have a little more power. I have never owned a nitro engine this large, so I have no idea how it will compare to the Quadra 35. I wont be doing any gas conversion to it, since there is too much involved; at least for now. If I dont like the ST, I will switch to the Quadra later on. This Stinger is built like a brick out house, lots of ply. It has some hours on it and it is not a beauty queen, but its the kind of plane you dont mind just having fun with, not worrying about getting a scratch on it.
