    Insane 1/5 scales with Big Blocks in them!!

    The purpose of this thread is to talk about big block motors in 1/5 scale cars. I consider inline twins or any motor larger than 27cc as a big block. If you have a 1/5 scale with a big block in it would you share how you set it up what kind of tires you are using , what type of motor and post some pictures if you have any?

    here is a picture of a FG with a BZM big block in it I think this prototype belongs to Maxit. He went 117mph with a 50cc BZM in a Baja.

    That's my rally on the first picture there. I did not get the braking performance I hoped for, so I have now mounted hydrulic brakes on it. Still waiting for a guy to cut custom epoxy brake disc's in a water jet though..

    Here is my build thread, I think the pictures will tell you more:

    $1000 for that BZM mini moto engine... ridiculous.
    Her name was Lola. She was a show girl.

    I found this picure of a inline twin in a MCD. So I know a twin will fit in a MCD. This is what I want to do to my MCD.

    id question this, the motor is not mounted in the MCD, it's just laying next to it??? actually it is mounted with HPI baja rear section and clutch housing, I doubt this ever went into that MCD...

    As for the FG with the BZM 50, do you have anymore pictures of it? would like to see the other side..

    I am in the process of completing a fg 4wd baja competition with inline twin 57cc and dual VRC pipes, will get some pics as I complete the project.

    Thanks

    I don't think a twin will fit and if it was mounted it would be offset too much...

    OOPS!! I posted the wrong file My computer crashed and I lost the best pictures of this project I did see a video of this Mcd running with a twin in it . I know for a fact that a twin can fit in a MCD a guy up at largescale put one in a MCD before he completed the project a customer purchased the car. Here is a picture of another twin in a MCD.

    I am pretty sure it will fit and if it does not I will just put the motor in another car no big deal.

    I wonder how long it will be before some one puts a 125cc shifter cart motor and tranny in a largescale landspeed attemp vehicle.
