Looking to replace the engine on your 1/5 scale car? Replace it with quality, and enjoy the reliability and extra 24%* power from this 26cc 2 stroke engine that can out perform almost any other stock 26cc engine on the market. If you're looking to race your 1/5 scale RC truck or buggy you will find that some AARCMCC classes will have engine limitations (see the quote from the rule book below) that limits you to a maximum displacement of 26cc which this just fits under being a 25.4cc engine ensuring you have maximum power possible in these classes.
"1/5th - 1/6th SCALE STOCK (Entry Level) 2wd CLASS
12.1 Engine Limitations: Vehicles can only run with a standard engine with a maximum capacity of 26cc."

Losi 5IVE-T | Losi DBXL
You will need to use your clutch mount and flywheel cover from your old (stock) engine for correct installation. Everything else should bolt up nicely.
TLR (Losi) 5IVE-B
As you cannot use the stock clutch mount or flywheel cover like you can with the Losi 5IVE-T & Losi DBXL (as it doesn't come with one) you will need to purchase this shorter clutch mount and a Rovan flywheel cover or the Hpi flywheel coverseparately for a correct installation.
HPI Baja 5B | HPI Baja 5T | HPI Baja 5SC
We recommend purchasing this shorter spacer (alternatives: HPI-102164, HPI-87458 & HPI-87571) for a correct installation (the Zenoah clutch mount's mounting stud is too long). Everything else should bolt up nicely.
Recommended petrol: 95+ Octane
Recommended fuel/oil ratio: 25~40:1
Clutch Engagement: 6000 RPM (STD Spring)
Carburetor: Walbro WT-990
Spark Plug: NGK CMR7H
