Basically a replacement of the plastics on the engine minus the top because the exhaust is a tight fit I'll need to vent the pullstart some more aswell

Might get a water cooled isolator and add a radiator and fan 1/10th scale and a nitro fuel tank to feed the water mounted at the back not sure tho there is space

He could have saved so much space with all 1/10 scale parts I'm thinking of wrapping copper tubing round the header connecting a pump and a radiator

Today is the best day ever had a 30 minute carpark run after heavily ramping the piston no heat issues rpm was higher than it's ever been I recommend those esp ramped pistons highly even tho I did mine myself all I gotta do is stock up on rovan 45cc engine parts for when it does finally give but for now it's running like I 60cc or so .so much power and speed shame all 4 tires couldn't keep up

Congrats! πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ˜Š
Why not try to build a Dyno and see the numbers she's putting out. I'd think, 13.5-16hp 😈
Also for making videos I'd suggest getting some camera glasses and it can be a POV video and u don't need to drag anybody out to film πŸ‘πŸ‘

I had heat issues before but the speed the fan is spinning now is blowing like a hair dryer keeping it cool when it's running but kept spin ing tires I would love to dyno it tho it sounds like a ported 23cc it screams but loudly like it should be an 5th scale formula one car not a rally car
