Kyosho Gigan, front mounted, with a Blower filter. The twin engine is just an option.

A guy out here runs one

He runs a 11 tooth bell with a 48 tooth spur and RE t-maxx adaptors
the rest mostly stock. The thing is awesome, I'm hoping when I get my newly converted H7 diled in I'll give him a run for his money

If you do it? run the RE cnc knuckles, the cast ones wont hold up

I think it would
Hard to tell from the picture if the clutch shoes will work
That tapered edge looks a little funny, might have to cut the shoes a little
And it takes diffents size bearings, but it might work

Well I was at the track last night and talked to Steve
The 11 tooth bell is a Kyosho part #40---? Forgot what he said
The downside it the bell he is using uses 5-8mm flanged bearings
Not nearly as durable as the normal 5-10 bearings most bells use

He told me he's going to the JT conversion, ans will sell me the bells, we'll see
