Those are (ERFA legal) .21's i dont think i want to drop that kind of money on an engine. Not when there are plenty of high rpm .12's out there that would give me plenty of power. The trick is getting it to bump start. Their isnt the room on the underside for a bump box wheel to engage the flywheel. Basically im stuck with pullstart capable engines. Nova has made some but i think the best solution would be novarossi's revo/maxx direct replacement setup.

I put a hyper. 21 in one used shaved sc8 mounts and tmaxx tank fit perfect. I vote for sparkly green or rust red primer

I think ima spring for the nova. Ive had a few now and they are worth every penny. My first engine was used, withtwo pinches on it from the first owner, i had 2 more done and its still tight and slop free and the crank and rod. Bearings are originals as well. 2nd one was cooked a few times and ive had to do a pinch on that plus new rod pin but the crank and rod are still tight, and again, stock original bearings. Even most of the carb seals are originals.

Its good enough that im loathe to risk burning either up doing speed runs. Those cx12's are dang good circle track engines.
