Default super tigre 2300

i know there is a lot of bad rumors on these engines. i`ve used the smaller ones for years,no problem.then i decided to go to 1/4 scale,bought a couple of these online,did the usual 2gal breakin.didnt notice at first but both had different size carburators (internal barrel dia.)started to dial in the larger sized carb ,couldn`t get a decent transition.yes i think i`ve read all the mods to help.and yes they do help.but what i wanted to say is after some inspection with the carb.i tryed the smaller barreled. nice transition,but not enough top end. for me any way.then i switched spray bars with the two after some dialing in WOW what a difference nice transition and great top end with out a fat midrange!no i haven`t tached it yet,have to wait for some help holding the plane.cant wait to fly it. any how my 2 cents. with the larger diam.barrel carb and the smaller dia. barrel spray bar in the larger one it sure woke this engine up.

Default big Tigres

Glad to hear your 2300 is a runner. I have lots of the smaller STs myself, and wanted to try a big one on my first 1/4-scale airplane. I bought an S2000 (25cc) and I'm getting ready to put it on a test stand a give it a go. (I bought a Perry pump carb and regulating pump just in case! )

yeah i too put a pump on mine (unfortunately,now discontinued robart pump.small and works great.)only due to the fact that i put the tank about 12 inches from the carb,in a goldberg sukhoi.tached it with a t/f 16x8 at 9500 great speed but not enough thrust for torque roll. need to try some 18x8`s.with a os f plug and a bisson pitts this is all ive done no dead sticks with a great transition and a low idle.
