Thanks, I use post image to post pics....……… https://postimages.org/
From what I see that truck looks pretty cool...Whats the MSRP?
That engine youre using is 1.6hp for the 40mm cylinder and 1.9hp for the 44mm cylinder and the engines are made for trashpumps,brushcutters and ice augers.....
It takes a lot of mods and porting etc to get them to even 5hp on pump gas....Depending on your mechanical skills and tools you can add a few more....First thing is getting rid of the floater carb and get a pumper carb, modding the clutch also getting a rocket key plus replacing the stock sparkwire for one from an automotive set...
Modding the reedplate is essential too....

My mechanical skills I would say are good. I'm a self taught machinist I have a Bridgeport and a 12x36 lathe that I do all my custom Gun work on.
I might buy another engine since they are cheap and build that. I would love to put a better engine on this truck its too bad they chose this engine and not the standard RC engines. Mike Taylor at RCMAX is looking into fitting one of his HP/TQ makers in it.
A company called TMR is building these engines just for these trucks and are making pretty good power but for $1150 ill pass and built my own They are using a custom Reed and a HDA48 carb and a lot of work inside balancing the crank, porting jug , case etc.
I have a RCMAXX GT50 50cc Reed Case on order that makes 15-20hp soon as its paid off it will be built.
check these bad boys out expensive but worth it. https://www.rcmax.co.uk/
This RCMAX was just shy of $2k but I just cant see spending $1150 on one of these Chinese engines when I could make a little more power out of it myself with a little help. Lol
I'm not looking to get the most out of this engine I would like it to have at least double the power if not more but I don't want to make it unreliable.
I'm going to run a Walbro WT1107 Carb 15.88mm bore and a 13.5mm Venturi. I run these on my 32/34cc and will be running the same carb on my RCMAXX 50GT.
What would you say to do or not to do so I don't waste money/time?Lol I would love to just run a piston port engine cause I know they are torquer but not sure it would fit with the pipe being in the way.
I have a 3 piece , 3 port/ split transfer port reed case cylinder/head kit with a windowed piston that I just bought it looks nice but definitely needs some machine work to make it work. Any thoughts or info is much appreciated. Thanks again Mike
