    They would be fine to use for a twin engine project. But It depends on whether you are able to run the engines OK or not. The old .74's are good...

    You can get a tuned pipe header from Macs Mufflers and then you can use one of the 26cc canister mufflers with it. You can also make a Mousse Can...

    earlwb replied to a thread leftover r/c car fuel in RC Fuels
    I have used the car fuel before. You add more oil to bring up the oil content to 15% to 20%. With 1/2a engines it works great just like that. With...
