Nah not for me that Rovan kit, would rather buy a long block engine and fit my ancillaries to it. Just bolt the original one back together with bearing fit, refit and run till it goes bang then upgrade/rebuild.
It should give it more torque down the low end, and more power at all revs, however it will not rev as fast. So say top out at 18,000rpm rather than 20,000rpm. But should be worth the investment to get more power all round
this is how I should have worded it , I always try and over complicate things , even when trying to describe something ,
Know a few who have firked about trying to fit Rovan parts to Zenoah bottom end and had limited success/engine lifespan. My advice would be as above, then when its firked contact Ian Harris about a Zen 320 long-block.
Hes on "people i would like to punch in the face-book"
spents yeah im a simpleton - More of a Keep it simple silly person me =)
nah mate your not a simpleton , your just asking the questions cos you didn't understand, we all start to learn at some point and the best way to learn is hands on and just ask the questions , that's what the forums for mate, for myself I ask about brushless stuff cos its new to me and I have almost no idea when it comes to brushless leccy witchcraft stuff ,
No mate its a stock engine with all the bits took off, you fit your flywheel, coil, pull-start, engine covers, engine mounts, clutch to it. Be interested to know how much he charges to change your crank for a new one, then run and tune engine.
I would try bolting yours back together with new flywheel first and see about getting it running before I spent anything.
I have been quoted a price =) If you can guess it you can pay it ? Deal or no deal lol - So there is no point getting a long block then if it does not produce any more results or am i missing something ?
No mate its just a way of replacing a firked engine without buying all the other bits you already own or stepping up to a tuned engine with your own ancillaries. Crankshaft refit £50 -80 including parts Longblock Zen G320 £120 -150 delivered
The term long block and short block come from car engines, short block generally is just the engine block with no heads or cams, long block comes with heads and cams and maybe a few other essential parts
So from what I understand it is all the big core parts of the engine. Not much mroe expensive than you getting a new crank, but all professionally put together and probably a lot fresher than what you have. And cheaper than buying a new engine with all the accessories that you already have. Seems like a good idea.
I am a mad RC loving lawn mower racing lunatic with a desire for over-powered RC's.
Yeah i was thinking that but i think if i want to go and spend the money for something a little more i might want to look at some more umpth... There is time to think about it any way, Little uns BD next month so hes a priority not an engine at the moment =)
