    New item

    I just bought a new SH.18 enginge and a 1/10 aluminum exhaust pipe. I was wondering if it would fit my redcat lightning. And i would also like to know is it possible to get a rear exhaust for my lightning.

    Yes it will fit just fine and no there is no rear exhaust to my knowledge, you would have to fabricate something.

    That is the flywheel, you should be able to just pull it off. If not just pry it off gently with a screwdriver.

    did you take the nut off the shaft? there is a long black thing that looks like a long nut with a shaft you need to unscrew then your flywheel will come off.

    I'm not quite sure how to tell you this, but .18 cubic inches converts to 3.0 cubic centimeters (rounded up to 3)

    .18 (cubic inch) = 2.94967152 cubic centimeter
    If you look at the specs for the Volcano you will see the that Volcano SV ships with the exact same VX .18 engine that you claim it doesn't have. The Volcano SV Pro also ships with an .18 CI engine as well, but it has the Infinity .18 instead of the VX. But it is still a .18 engine.
