Supertigre C 35 TONGUE Muffler
« on: October 31, 2018, 07:24:26 AM »
Does anyone make a tongue muffler for the  ST C.35 ? (G.35 should be similar)
Got the later version with tangs on either side of the exhaust port.
Thanks

Can't help you but...

What'cha gonna' put it on???

This past Saturday I received my C-35 back from Gluedobber's Tigre Guru Randy Daily. Wow... looks fabulous and feels awesome. This is the same Tigre that I purchased as a kid and has been neglected for decades. Nice to have it back... but I doubt I'll ever build an airplane for it.  :'(

Hey Andre :
On my silk 'n dope Voodoo. You saw it ?
Two Fox guys with  Supertigres -haha.
Not in the speed league with my LS 36x BB or those with the Gardner P/L.
This one runs quite well. Easy start.
 Pacifier ala East Coast.
Just like taylor ham & Italian Hot dogs. Got to experience it.
See Ya

Okay... I remember talking of putting an ST on your Voodoo.

If I had more motivation, I could see building an appropriate ship for my C-35 to power.

Ah yes... east coast diner n' dive food: Good stuff.

Frankie, That would be the same as a G-21 .46. There should be some of those in the stunt crowd. I just put my C .35 on my 1970 Nemesis. Should be fun.   TS

That's how the original flew until Howard got the hots for speed.  The C .35 was good for 100-105 out of the box.  Adjusting the head depth, plug depth, and increasing the shaft timing a bit would get it up to 110mph.

The G-21.35 could pretty easily go near 120 mph on a Nemesis.  For maybe as many as 10-15 flights.  It made the plane nose heavy which required re-trimming. Then it would suddenly get really hard to set.  A couple more runs could ruin the P/L going lean before it puked the shaft at the crankport.

                                The moral of the story ............. run a Fox.......(or just stay with the Super Tigre C .35).  I did.       D>K       H^^

The G.21 would puke the shaft running on 10% if it was a good one.  It just took longer.  The 12mm shaft and the way the port was cut was just bad all around.
