Default Super tiger 2000?

Hello, I was hoping somebody could help me. I own a Super tiger 2000 and would like to know the specs on this motor. I want to use it on a GP Big Stick and was wondering if this motor would proper.( RPM, weight, Prop Size Etc ) Any help would be appreciated or any web site I can visit. I already went to super tiger web site but I can seem to come across that same motor. I am not sure if it has been discontinued and that is making a little hard to find info.[]

Thanks
Sergio

Here are a couple of links that may give you the info you need:

http://home.wanadoo.nl/pereivers/sup...tructions.html (bottom of page for specs)

The 2300 is the same engine, just slightly larger http://www.rcaerobats.net/STEng/ST_Story.htm

Hope this helps

No, no, no, the ST2300 is not the same as the 2000. The 2000 was the first popular, big glow engine at 20ccs or 1.2 cu in. The 2500 was in the same crankcase, but has 2500 stamped on the lug, as I recall.

These engines, as well as the 3000 & 3250, use a low oil fuel, 12%-14%. With regular model fuel, they don''t idle as well or produce max power. They will run. Morgan Fuels sells (or they used to) Super-T fuel in both Omega and Cool power. This was a low oil fuel that ran very well in these engines.

The 2000 and 2500 both turned up fairly well, whereas the 3000 and 3250 got their max hp at 7900 rpm. The larger 2 engines need to be propped for about 7200 on the ground. As I recall, a 16-6 or 16-8 was a good prop for the 2000.

The 2300 is a completely different, and newer, design that uses regular model fuel, 17%-20% oil.

The ST 2000 that I used to have turned a Master Airscrew 16x8 at 8000 rpm on the ground. I ran it on Omega Super-T and consider it the best engine I ever had. I deeply regret selling it and the Nosen Citabria it was in.
