Very interesting, I'll have to look into that. Thanks for the replies.
Just use the kick start then, do you guys really want to complicate things for yourselves and spend $$$ when all you had to do in the first place was just kick it.If you are not using it for racing you are kinda wasting your $$$ and time.
But hey, they're just toys after all. Something to keep us from beating the wife and painting the walls downtown.
Heck, no mention of a lighting requirement. It's those pesky spark plugs that are the problem.Convert to glow plugs.Use straight methanol.Up the CR.Maybe trim off some cooling fin material (or block airflow through them to help retain heat)Just need a small battery to make the plugs glow for kick start. After that, the platinum in the plug will catalyze the methanol when the A/F mixture is compressed. Turn the staring battery off, and drive away.Want more power? Add Nitro.Won't get much lighter than that.
