    Aha, no veit eg kven du er, hehe

    I guess it is not hard to fabricate some new engine mounts here, but you might have to move them closer or wider to accept a new engine in the car. And you also might have to lower or raise them to get it lined up with the clutchbell. Brushless conversion can also be done, but then it will loose some of its original charm with being a nitro.
    Find a job you love, then you won\'\'t have to work for the rest of your life.

    jepp, må bytte avatar slik at det er likt her også :P
    the engine mounts fits a .21 engine, but the crankshaft is too long, and the exhaust hit the side chassie plates, so i will need a side exhaust engine.

    RE: swissflash/tamiya tyrell

    Since Tamiya Tyrell P34 was never available in nitro configuration, I doubt its part would apply to this vehicle at all.. looks like you need a small nitro engine... or you can probably convert it to electric with some custom made motor mount..

    I agree. Ive search on most of the search engines i know of for this car, but nothing, This i know for sure, it aint a Tamiya as they only made it in electric. Kyosho didnt get the copyrights for it too.
    Ive even tried Swissflash......but i keep getting knives with flasdrives...lol

    What scale car is it?

    It probably uses a Veco .19, like all old nitro cars.

    RE: swissflash/tamiya tyrell

    i have done alittle of work to it, the engine is a old .21 without crankshaft. i made a  plate for the tank and servos, aswell as a 4mm milled chassis, and i have started to polish the wheels, and remove corrosion on alu parts, aswell as rust on steel parts.the suspension arms where so rusty that i had to make new ones. so far, i am happy with it:

    RE: swissflash/tamiya tyrell

    looks awfully nice, so you have an issue with the crank being too long in most standard .21's? why not get a machinist to cut it and re drill and tap it?

    So glad to have a savage again. Time to make it handle less like a savage.
