HI Lordmik
Thank you for ur reply. But i have noticed in the past that the engine did not die when i used to refill after a spin.

ALso Mark thank your for ur reply. Is it possible to replace the bearing.?? Are parts available ?? This buggy has just done less than 2 qts of run.

What other engines are good for my Himoto syclone 2 speed 4 WD

Thank u guys

We have a bearing for the Vertex .18 Taiwan motor. Himotos usually have the Infinity Japan .18
Not sure if the bearing is the same. If you tell me the size I can compare.

Here's a link: http://www.topspeedtoys.com/index.ph...9314d736a375f0

I will get the size of the bearing later today. When and if you get to tearing down the motor check to see if the measurement is the same.

Does anybody know of any wheels that are bigger than the ones that come on the truck that are available? (himoto eldorada/redcat volcano) I'd like to have more ground clearance. Also, are there any other bodies available?

thanks.

Dan

hey nitro_racer_1, i was wondering what the aluminum upper plate you have on your car is for? im guessing for reinforcment?? is it a worthy buy?
well i wanted to make the truck all aluminum mainly for the strength, just cuz the aluminum is stronger than the plastic, and it prolly stiffens up the chassis a little which is a good thing for handleing, and yeah i would recomend it, carbon fiber is good too, im actualy gonna replace my alluminum upper plate with carbon fiber, ive been in touch with Noob2nitro, who is working with top speed toys to make CF parts for the buggy, if i were u i would hold out for the CF stuff cuz its strong and stiff and really light.

HI Mark , Hi all

On the front engine bearing , is there a part number as per the manual ?. I see in my manual as

02079 - OIL BEARING 15*10*4.

Is it called Oil Bearing or engine bearing ...are both one and the same ? will this fix my problem of fuel leak that i see when i prime the engine?? Does the front and back bearing usually have the same size.

thank you

No lucas, 02079 is a brass bushing for the wheel hub. Comes w/ basic RTR nitros. Better RTR's have bearings there but this
is not an engine bearing. Also, no engine parts are listed in the manuals.

You need item R011... see attached pic.

No sorry, I did not. I was looking for it here but I think I PM'd the size to someone and can't find it.
I'll have to try to get that info tonight.

yes thats a 2 speed hpi clutch bell that is the original tranny case with an hpi 86038 2 speed tranny kit installed its an hpi onroad setup but have had no problems with it shifting it runs good the engine doesnt wanna wind out 2nd though think its just a lack of power i could tweak the shift point a little though the engine has a weak top end think ill stick to my orinigal idea of slapping a OS .18 tz in it that should give me the power needed to wrap it out

also if its leaking at the front of the motor, i would check the seal at the botom of the carb, or the nut that holds it on could be loose.
