I don't believe it. The other motor that I just got is shot too. The rear bearing is missing half the ball cage, and more steel balls are gone too. Piston chewed up, scraped at top (One side) Head button chewed up also. I give up, and will just use my brand new K5.9 motor instead. What a shame, as I wanted to use the Truckzilla motor. Do they have faulty rear bearings, and I did order new Boa bearings for the first motor ARRRR!!!...

Oh by the way. Thus is the piston from the other motor. Can I run it like it is.

Guys. Instead of using a .46 Hot Bodies motor. I'm gonna use a Thunder Tiger .70 instead (I'm made the motor plate for it) However, Should I use a 17 teeth clutch bell (Like the .46 uses) or a 18 teeth bell instead..

Just came across your thread,
the thunder tiger pro 70 and hot bodies .46 are turds,
ran both, pro 70 in my mgt and 46 in a truckzilla
a decent 28 engine would out accelerate and get them on top end,

ive bought brand new old stock parts for a savage twin,
my fueltank came from France
https://www.efm-modelisme.fr/article/265250
fuel tank came with 2 original twinzilla air filters and all fixings and fuel lines,

and the chassis plates and motor plate parts came from Ryper hobbies in Australia,
also ordered the rear shaft and linkages from them,

just received the new screw set today from a dude in France,

have 2 New Go28 engine, rebranded as trackstar 28 engines that arrived today,

the only parts I need now are both sets of motor mounts,

And the chassis stiffener, but this part looks easy made from a piece of 4mm alloy plate,
it just a brace really that holds the throttle linkage arm,

have you been successful in finding any, twinzilla parts?

il post pics of mine if you like?

Hey Sparky,did you ever find the motor mounts? I don't have any super skookum calipers,but I think I could figure out how to post a few pics next to a metric ruler or figure something out so you can have someone machine a set for you.
If I figure something out,I'll post some pics here. What was the shipping for the fuel tank? And did they have any more of them? Thanks,Stan O.
