    RE: Bad Engine, Decisions

    That is really cool. I will have to do that. I had the spring and pin break on me though even with the stock owb setup. Wouldn't this just wear out the spring rally really fast?

    RE: Bad Engine, Decisions

    it does increase rotating mass, but think of the mass of the tires compared to that...almost a negligable in comparison. and i think this is a great solution to a really common problem, great video!
    So glad to have a savage again. Time to make it handle less like a savage.

    Rotating mass from the power source is different than rotating mass from the wheels.

    RE: Bad Engine, Decisions

    If your referring to the starting mod in that video on the f4.6, that start shaft doesn't spin when the engine is running. It has a spring and pin mechanism in the end of the crank and once that engine starts there is absolutely not driving force against the start shaft. I have a big block revo with one of these engines that I use the one way bearing in the end of a drill to start. Engine running you can grab that shaft , it's not even spinning. Like I said earlier some engine start shafts are keyed to the crank and yes then this would add mass but not with f series mills.
