I had to go look at my small collection of Fox Combat 36X engines. Early versions of the series.
Anyway I had converted one for RC purposes. One engine still has the open intake for use with a bladder or a pressure fuel tank. The other two have the special venturi intake restrictor inserts for slow combat competitions.
