Default Got an OS .18 for the BJ26!!

Bought a brand new OS engine from CRD for $150 shipped!! I cant belive the size of the carb on that thing [X(] . My original BJ26 is pretty beat up(lots of cracks[:@]) but I have a spare one which I will be epoxying the engine compartement, installing my custome running gear with a grim prop and pulling off the turn fins. Hopeing for at leats 30-35MPH. I'll update this thread with pictures and hopefully a video as we are heading out to the lake on Saturday.

What prop are you going to run? I put a Grim 42/55 on my OS .18 powered 24" Wild Thing with good results.

Thats what I bought for it a while back. The .15 couldnt even turn([:-]) it so I got a smaller 3/16 prather prop. I forget the dimmensions but with the .15 it only get sup to about 18MPH or so even though it kicks up a nice rooster tail.

Going to break in the OS with it and then fine tune it and throw the 42/55 in it. Should have some progress picts up tonite.
