Default Project 1/12 Missbud w/HPI 18SS

My poor old Missbud had been sitting around for the past year. Just bought an OS 18CVR for my RS4 3 18SS kit. So why not put the HPI 18SS in the Missbud. Perfect fit. Except for the exhaust. Just need to install the eletronics and she's ready. The stock motor was a Dyn. 15 and claims 30mph. I wonder what the HPI 18ss will do. I'm guessing 40-45...We'll see...

I'd make sure that front intake is open for a cooling flow, then out the (fake)exhaust, maybe a little computer fan or something, and keep her moving for air ot get rammed in there, I have seen aircooled boats before, but most have open tops, like riggers and such, or if you got creative and had access to machining you could make a water jacket for that head, thatd be real sweet, Im sure you'll see more power, could probably prop up a bit as well.

I see that you had trouble finding a wrap to center header for it. Some headers can be modified to work if they are cast aluminum or look at what Traxxas has to offer.
You might want to consider either opening the holes in the plastic insert in the scoop or removing it completely to let the engine get more air to the heat sink.
