    Hyper 7 connecting rod broke ??

    Can I use a rod from another engine and does it have to be from the same size engine ?

    What specific engine do you have? So many were available with the Hyper Series. 21/26/28/32

    pretty much same brand you need. Look in your engines manual and look for a part number last time I replaced one it was around $25 on a k4.6

    also check what 1QwkSport2.5r said in your other post if the piston is damaged
    With great speed comes greater repair bills.

    Not many Force engine parts available, even at Nitrohouse. Check your manual to see if this will work.

    http://www.nitrohouse.com/Connecting...32_p_9087.html make sure its the same part as in your manual(the Force JL .28 manual I just read online has the same exact part #)

    http://www.rcplanet.com/HPI_Connecti...Fenm7AodF1QAjA not sure if it would work as it states its for a SG shaft (I will be honest I forgot the different shaft definitions), but the F4.6 is a Force .28

    I wouldent bother with that to much.... First thing to do is get the piston and sleeve out the motor....u need to do this anyway to replace the rod. But more importantly u need to inspect both the piston and sleeve first.

    well in retrospect one little mistake can destroy a brushless motor, ESC, or even a whole RC which usually cost the same or more then a decent nitro engine Just look at the damage a broken bearing can cause in a BL motor can short out the coil that would damage the ESC junking the whole system. On the engine I seen a conrod sleeve, and piston set for his engine for $40 so its not like its a insanely huge issue if its all trashed.

    I know.... Lol just messing around, but when u think of it..... The chances of that happening of a brushless RTR kit is low, and generally it can be claimed under warranty.
