Nitro, ashfordhobbies.com has the CMB engines and everything you need for them. Thats also the only place I know that carries them. They are so far away from me and now I have to order more CMB plugs

Blade, fine job so far

Very nice blade, you will love that CMB engine. If mines will make burnout marks nearly til second gear on take off, imagine what your will do to that 1/10 chassis

It shouldnt fold the chassis, that chassis is thick from what i see so I think it will be a matter of keeping it straight!

That was a joke Vortex  But Blade is putting a real stump puller of a motor in it!!  it will be real interesting to see what kind of topend speed he gets.

Awesome build Blade!You and NH5300 build some outrageous cars! Now I want one of those kits! I hope Wofpack is reading these posts. Seems there is a bit of interest! As a side note, if you need anything from Ashford hobbies, Robert is outstanding for help. I highly recommend them! I've spent time on the phone with him and he's a great guy who knows his stuff. He was friends with the late Ron Paris.

Why not go water cooled to prolong life and produce better performance.

Watercool is cool on boats, because you don't need alot of equipment to accomplish cooling.  But  for a car, you would need a radiator, fan and a pump, this equipment is going to increase your cars weight and possibly offset any performance gains.
