Default Tamiya TNX 5.2R Engine upgrade to OS 30VG?

Hi Everyone

My TNX 5.2R engine seems to have had better days. Would it be good or advisable to upgrade it with an OS30VG?

I hate the stock motor and I experienced lots of starting problems since day one. Our family does have four 5.2r with only mine a dud. The rest seems ok.

The connection rod also shows signs of wear between the crank and big end.

Regards,
Hennie

I own a TNX 5.2R and LOVE it...(Except feeding it clutch's daily)....My engine seems super strong and runs like a bat outta hell...It'll run anything that I can throw at it down.....I have never had any real engine issues with it..Does your eat clutch shoes like mine..??..Just curious..
Cheers

Yes mine eats clutches as well!!

There is a 3 shoe clutch upgrade available, which I'm thinking of getting.

The engine is probably a dud. I will purchase a new Ofna Force 32 and just do the starter conversion to have it standard. The OFNA is exactly the same engine, just half the price!!
