I am looking into installing the Hot Bodies Truckzilla Big Twin Conversion in my Savage X and putting two O.S. FS-26S-C Version II engines in it. Would this layout work, and what kind of performance can I expect from these two engine? Also, how would I actuate and connect the two carburetors together (which are mounted at the back)? And where would I have to mount the throttle servo?

Not sure about the engine you are running but I sure will not run high oil content in my car truck engines I run! I base this on experience as well as what others say! Here is just one web site why.

I do believe in your car and truck engines you will see an increase in performance I did as well as lower temperatures. Now your 4 cycle being and airplane engine do not know what to say.

Sorry man i work 50 hours a week at my job and another 10 to 15 in my garage at home on DSM's. Im tryin to finish this thing as fast as possible, trust me its hard to stuff a 4 stroke .82 in a 10th scale truck. A few people asked me to keep them updated on the progress thats why i keep posting... Here is a vid of a few of my projects....

Nice!! I've always wanted to put a 4 stroke in my Revo. If my Nova Rossi P5X would sell, I will add a 4 stroke to my second Revo.

Keep us posted!!

Very nice work here.

I can only say I run a 4 stroker in a plane. They say a 4 stroker needs more oil than a 2 stroker but I don't know what to think, so I run 16% oil. Any more and performance drops severly. Most 4 strokers are also only shimmed for 0-15% nitro so that's another concern when running higher nitro.

Looking good! What air filter are you going to run? Least you have the torque to pull all the bling. LOL Get some videos when you have time. Is this the first time you ran a Perry pump? Have all ways wondered how well they worked. Thought about trying one on my Savage to try and cure the half tank lean. Here are a couple of pictures of my poor beat up MT 1 ¾. As you can see I have a little run time on it.
