Hi all,

I'm thinking about trying the new Rovan 36cc engine. Is anyone here running this engine? If so how well does it perform and how easy is it to start?

Thanks in advance

I only have experience with the HY redcat motor but on yputube theres plenty of the 36cc vids you can watch. They seem to be good running motors but have heard some with multiple issues with them, don't know but its worth a shot for he price...let us know if you do get to try one how it goes

On the 30.5 one of the wrist pin washers came apart and tore up the piston. On the 32 I found chunks of metal the color of the con rod but couldn't find where they came from so either casting flash or poor assembly room practices, that engine didn't make it long maybe six to eight weekends.

Thanks for the info. I have been checking youtube. The engine seems to start
and run fine. I'll try one in a few months when $ is available. and let you know how it
runs.

thanks again

Anyone know if the size of the exhaust port is larger than the exhaust port on the Zenoah G290. Just curious if my old pipes will fit.

One of my buddies has a G290 and it has been a fantastic engine, and it comes well outfitted! WT-990 carb, lightened flywheel. He pulled it out of his DBXL and moved it to his 5ive-T and I got to run both of my G340 5ives against it yesterday and it was holding its own under the pressure of my big blocks. If I got out front I could drive away but that could be down to chassis and suspension tuning as his 5ive is still box stock on shocks and diffs.
