I have seen a .40 four stroke. I have also seen twin .21s. Just what are you trying to create?

August 2002 - Radio Control Car Action Magazine
Page 242 (Backlot - Last Page)

31CC (not a .31 an actual 31) Weedwacker engine
13 Inch Wheel Base
Cable Operated Throttle
Custom Machined Clutchbell
Custom Machined steel gears
Custom Machined intake manifold with K&N filter

Engine Cost - 60$
Power Comparison - .21ci displaces just 3.5cc (this is nearly 10x that!)
Runtime - 45minutes to an hour on 1 tank
Point - Intake restricter had to be installed to 'calm' things down ;)

I thought this was dropped into a TMaxx - It started out as a Thunder Tiger Mirage! DOH! He also had to design a new 6061 Alum Chassis. Also, because of the space issue, he had to drop to two wheel drive. Just not enough room for that 4 wheel drive!

Anyhow, its cool for being a power house. If you have the mag, check it out.
