TOO MUCH IS NEVER ENOUGH? WELL, THIS IS ENUF. Alan Scholes' unique stadium truck started out as a Thunder Tiger Nirage V-spec with a .21 engine, but he bumped the displacement to a 31. No, not a ".31"; Alan installed a31cc weed-trimer engine! By camparison, a .21ci engine displaces just 3.5cc, and we all know that's still enough for wheel-spinning,dirt-roosting action. This truck's engine is nearly 10 times bigger! Alan says he brought the engine as a remanufactured unit for just $60 and used CAD software to design a new 6061 channeled-aluminum chassis: hey, he is a mechanical engine, y'know! Check out these other features: __Streched 13 inch wheelbase. __Rear-wheel drive(no room for the original 4wd stuff). __Cable-operated throttle. __Custom-machined clutch bell fitted to a shortened crankshaft. __Custom-machined steel gears. __Custom-machined intake manifold with K&N Filter. __Kyosho Landmax F-150 body. And the ride? Alan says, "I have been pleasantly surprised by the performance of the truck; at first, there was just too much torque, and it was hard to control, but after I had installed an intake restricter, it settled down nicely and is a perfect backyard basher. The engine is verry reliable, doesen't flame out and will idle all day long. Run time is 45 minutes to an hour on one tank of fuel. I love running without making pit stops!" Still, Alan hasen't finished with this beast yet; he planes to increase its durability with heat-treated gears and will make "other improvemnets as needed. "One thing is for certain: "more power" isen't on that list! There is all is, but sorry I cant post any pics, no scanner. I hope this sort of in a way helped someone.
