    I guess I will find out. It is on it's way from ddm this week. I had success yesterday getting the engine to start. It wouldn't start without giving it about 1/4 throttle, he had the idle screw all the way in till the spring was crushed. He had the low needle way too rich. So it is running pretty good now. I wasn't sure if I was going to use this engine or not, but it sounds strong. Now just to figure out how the roll cage and body fits on there. This was completely disassembled when I got it. Thanks for the input guys!!

    I found a g320 long block at ddm for $144.99 with ddm code $137.50. It was 1 of their deal of the day items. Going to use that engine instead of the stock. It works well in my MT so it should really scoot the DR

    She is getting there. I just need to finish up the electronics, need to bind the new receiver and hook up the superbee to that end. Reinstall the fuel tank. Went with the snappy vent kit too. Going to do the engine break in this weekend.

    Thanks @Phill. I think I am going to get the belt for it too. I really like it in my MT and you say you love it in your DR. I will wait a little bit though, I have too much money tied up in it as it is lol. Should be fine till I get more rc money

    Got this roll cage for a can't pass it up price. It took a bit of fenangling to fit it in there. I couldn't use the rear portion of the new cage because the rear mount jetpro. So I used a portion of the stock roll cage and 2 engine to transmission spacers to fill the gap.

    I ended up buying a foot of 7/8 inch silicone hose with a max temperature of 300 degrees. It fit perfectly, not too tight or loose. Hope it holds up. I used regular zip ties instead of the hose clamps this time to secure it.

    @Phill I got tired of my DR being a grass sweeper. Hopefully this helps. I have to get more of this aluminum screening for the roll cage next. What you guys think?
