what radio gear are you using with your electricsI've got a bluecase 40 and a bluecase 46 in my stash, can attest, they run real well. They're also VERY mildly ported! They've only got two transfer ports and one exhaust port; good chunk of empty cylinder wall where a third x-fer port usually lives. They really can't breathe.
I don't know what I'm going to do with either of mine tbh. They're weak, but durable. They'd be great on an airboat where surviving a drowning is an important consideration and power less so. I might do some science with them, put them through some bizarre crap, abuse, et-al. They don't owe me more than 20 bucks a pop.
currently planning on mounting one on my test stand outside and letting it sit out in the cold this January, try to start it shortly after sunrise. People say these engines won't start when they're cold like that and I'm curious to see if there's any truth to that. I doubt it to be the case. If I can get my hands on suitable starting fluid to use for ether I might try to track down that Davis Diesel head as well; I want to dabble with model diesels and the fuel has always been the hangup.
Not really. I run my models out of fuel at the end of the day, I use a fuel with castor in it, and I store them inside my air conditioned bedroom. And kitchen. And TV room. They don't rust.
If I'm perfectly honest my electric RCs...however few they may be...give me more grief than any of my glow models do. My WPL D12 has no power and likes to cry about signal loss if it's >30 feet away, my Mini-T 2.0 has a wonky connection somewhere in the high-current wiring that makes it cut out for no good reason, and my CA-10 scaler likes to test my patience with random failures. But my glow birds, cars? Yeah they work mint.
