    Hey guys/girls,

    I'm thinking of buying a swamp buggy and i was wondering if a nitro engine from a car will work or does it have to be from a plane? Thx for any info you have.

    on most car engines it has a short output shaft & a prop on it
    will hit the carb [xx(]
    some air intakes or carbs will turn to make room for a prop
    but they will work ok other then that:)for a air boat
    i think theres a article in rcairboats.net that some one did a
    car engine conversion on[?]not for sure tho
