    Has anyone switched SH.18 to OS .18 in any Redcat? Or any other .18 for that matter?

    I am assuming you're referring to the Redcat volcano, right? I'm too interested to know if there's any direct fit engine replacements (lessen the hassle of mountings), obviously with an engine which has higher torque and horsepower.
    any suggestions besides the Vertex VX18? I want more raw engine power, but not the hassle...

    Almost a DIRECT SWAP. I did it in a Caldera. Had to make some thin shims to go between engine and mounts so the OS pull start (slightly bigger than SH) would chear the upper chassis. OS .18 comes with shims for this but in my case they were to thick. Also had to cut 2 threads off crank shaft to use SH clutch bell assembly. Happy with results.

    I would be carful.  IMO the engine is the best part of any redcat.  The stock drivetrain can not hold up to the stock SH engine, I would not add more power, it will shred the rest of the car/truck for sure.
