Hi all,

The engine in my Riot is basically caput at the moment. It hasn't really had too much use (about 3-4 gallons through it) but its low on compression so its hard to start and cuts out a lot. Won't idle etc. Since the X18 parts are discontinued its hard to find a replacement piston and sleeve for it so I was wondering about replacing the engine completely?

Does anyone know what engines would drop straight in or with a little modding?

I've looked at the HPI Firestorm engine and that doesn't look too bad and possibly a Traxxas 2.5 engine. The traxxas engine would need and exhaust manifold modding a bit but I'm up for a challenge LOL

Anyone have any suggestions?

Thanks very much,

John

Riot 2 engines can be found online; not sure how much different they are -
 
Block mounts and exhaust manifold mounts should be indentical.
