there is no small label
the engine has the carb trumpet and titanium prop bolt as visual differences. The ignition is the 10V type (3S-LiPo)

There appears to be a small engraving on the drive washer (part 1101).

Mine has the vlach ignition so i presume its a regular version.

Indeed there is the engraving.
Older prosports also had the Vlach ignition. Tha standard engine has a plain washer without engraving.

Do you know if it is OK to use an unregulated lithium battery at 7+ volts to power the Vlach ignition or will it cause damage?

Thanks

Vlach will only run with 4 nicad or 4 NiMh. Anything more will put the ignition at risk.

Hi,

I have got a second hand MVVS-58 and I am trying to guess if its a Regular one or a ProSport.
I don't really understand what you guys mean for engraving, I observed my drive washer but I can't tell.

It has the VLACH ignition coded EZM 1 TI on its blue box and also with a number: 241834.
Do this tell something to some of you?

Here is the picture of my engine's drive washer:


Other then this I don't really know how to identify what's the engine I have!!!

The prop drive of the prosport has "prosport"  engraved on it. If not, you have the standard engine. In addition, the prosport has a titanium prop shaft. If yours is zinc plated, it is a standard engine. Other changes are inside the engine, like reworked piston and expensive bearings.

Ohhhh,

so looks like the one I have is a regular one, ok, that's nice to know...at least I can be sure of what I have.

Thank you very very much for helping me to find out, you have been of great help.
