    Need help removing a collar

    I recently bought a second-hand engine, the same displacement as my wrecked GX-15. It's missing the flywheel and the collar, though, so I took the flywheel of the GX-15, but I can't find a way to remove the collar. There's literally not a single post on Google on how to remove the collar. Any tips?

    engine sizing questions.

    Can you put a piston and sleeve in a .18 from a .16? also is there a size limit to a nitro drift car for engine size without a whole lot of modification.
