Default Are all Zenoah engines compatible...

with each other?

I have a 23cc Zenoah from an old weed trimmer and I was wondering if the drive train components from Zenoah's RC version will fit it?

Its setup with the clutch shoes mounted on the flywheel, and the clutch bell is mounted in the output cover, which is my delema, I cant take the clutch out of the cover cuz it doesnt attach to the flywheel at all... I tryed direct drive to a tmaxx diff, but the 1:1 ratio is too much, it never revs up. Mind you it still does 50mph+ and when it flys by it sounds like an ATV in high gear, lol.

So really all I wanna do is reduce the gearing so it can be used in the grass and other surfaces that have a high resestance factor. Gear drive is all I can see fitting in the maxx chassis. I mocked up a chain drive gear set and jack shaft,(like the plywood tmaxx conversion) but its too big and bulky for my application...

Plus it looks stupid.

Any suggestions for this mod would be apperciated a lot!
