Tech Notes
 
NOTES FROM OUR TECH DEPARTMENT
          This is the O.S. Max 30VG (P) ES Electric Start, Rear Exhaust
               Monster Truck Engine with Pilot Type Crankshaft.

FEATURES: Preinstalled E.S. Starter backplate is designed to use the DuraTrax Kwik-Pit Super Start for the HPI Savage or the HPI Roto Starter System (HPIP8711), see COMMENTS Same mounting dimensions as .21 size engines making upgrading easier Advanced Bi-Metallic Liner (ABL) cylinder liner construction This process uses a double layer of plating material rather than one thick layer. This helps the metal bond to the cylinder and is more durable. Also, the plating process is more consistent, resulting in a more precise fit between piston and sleeve for better compression and longer life. Machined aluminum piston, 3-port cylinder liner and double bushed knife edge connecting rod 21E single needle Slide Valve Carburetor with insulated sleeve to prevent fuel vaporization SG (pilot) type oversized crankshaft with rubber-sealed front bearing and oversized rear bearing to handle high torque loads Two year limited warranty

INCLUDES: O.S. Max 30VG (P) ES Electric Start Monster Truck Engine, illustrated manual, #8 glow plug, #203 air filter, two foam filters, two air filter O-rings and preinstalled E.S. Starter backplate

REQUIRES: Duratrax Kwik-Pit Super Start System or the HPI Savage Roto Starter System (HPIP8711) Car blend nitromethane fuel with 10-30% nitromethane content, 20% nitro content recommended as starting point Most of the fuels we carry meet or exceed the lubricant content required for optimum performance and maximum engine life. In the past, the conventional lubricant content used in fuel was 18%. But with new advanced technologies, fuels like Red Alert and O'Donnell for example, have a better quality of lubricants even though the percentages of lubricant content are lower. These high-tech lubricants provide exceptional cooling and protection.

SPECS: Displacement: 0.298 cu in (5.0cc) Bore: 0.728" (18.5mm) Stroke: 0.717" (18.2mm) Practical RPM: 4,000-36,000 Power Output: 3.0 PS, 2.96 HP/28,000 RPM Weight: 12.7oz (360g) Crankshaft Size: 1/4-28 Factory Needle Valve Setting: 2-3/4 turns OPEN from fully closed Mixture Control Valve Setting: Needle head flush with the side of ball link housing then back in 1-1/2 turn Distance Between Mounting Holes Same Side: 0.83" (21mm) Distance Between Mounting Holes Opposite Side: 1.4" (37mm) Distance Between Mounting Holes Diagonal: 2.3" (59mm) Height Bottom of Mounting Tabs to Top of Cylinder Head: 3.8" (97.7mm) Width of Mounting Tabs: 1.8" (45mm) Width of Crankcase Below Mounting Ears: 1.2" (30.8mm) Distance from Front Bearing to end of Crankshaft: 1.2" (29.5mm) Distance from Center of Engine to Front Bearing: 1.7" (44mm) Distance from Center of Engine to Backplate: 1.4" (35.6mm)

Needle Settings: High Speed: 2 3/4 turns out from fully closed Metering Needle (low speed): flush with ball link body, then 1.5 turns in Throttle Stop Screw: 1/2mm open from fully closed

COMMENTS: The manual says to install the backplate from the HPI Roto Starter System onto the engine. This is incorrect, the compatible backplate is already installed on the engine. The backplate for the HPI K4.6 engine will not fit on this engine.

To use this engine on the Duratrax Nitro Warhead, use OFNG0098 Clutch Nut.
