Kangke Monocoupe 90A (60 size)

Do you guys think that a saito 170R3 will be too much engine for the yellow, Kangke 1/5 scale monocoupe? the way I understand it, the 170R3 is about the same power as a 120 four stroke. But I thought I also read somewhere to resist the urge to over power this bird. I was running a RCGF 20CC gasser in it, but I am about to let that engine swim with the fishes. What a hunk of crap that motor is.

I already have the radial, so I wouldnt have to buy it. I was thinking of selling my radial as well as my other nirto and going all electric. But MAN the sound of that radial is just wicked though.....OHHHHH, What to do, what to do.

Rockin G,

I have a RCGF 20cc rear-intake engine that was a real dog. Turned out that it had a leak in the crankcase. It was mis-timed as well. Turned about 6400 rpm, tops. Jim, at Agape Racing fixed the leak and re-timed it. It now turns about 8400 rpm. You might consider having it checked out.

Best wishes.

The 170R3 is a good choice for their 90" Monocoupe.

Lifer, do you remember what he charged you to do that? Just trying to figure out if I want to throw any more money at this turd or go another route. Thanks for your time.
