    Do Engines Come Sealed?

    As the title asks, which I’m hoping isn’t a dumb question. Do nitro engines come sealed? Or is that something the user does? I get a lot of nitro leaking from near the carb when I run it hard.

    Engine options, not many.

    Unfortunately not too thrilled with my HPI Bullet. It does run well and starts up pretty quick, but the engine doesn’t have the power for off-road I’m looking for. It’s also a pita to get a decent tune, unlike my Losi 8ight, which was a breeze to get a nice tune on. Anyway I was looking around...

    Starting HPI Bullet (Updated w/pics)

    Well I finally got the car, but can’t seem to start the damn thing to break in the motor! I’ve read all the instructions, and searched and searched and searched, but no luck.

    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.
