I am trying hard to remember all the 2015 needs and wants I had asked about here and on other forums

Hi Fred, The next run of these has just started. So they will be a few months off. I have you on the list as requested.

Thanks Brian

Hoping this progress on the Fox .36X stirs a few more commitments for the Fox .36 MK IV/VI project I started

Hi Bob,

At this point all 30 sets in this run are spoken for. I'll add you to the list though. If someone pulls out you'll get lucky mate.

Still doing finishing touches. A bit behind schedule. Not far off now.

These are ready to ship and I've started packaging. All that have paid will be getting shipped by the end of the week. There are some yet to pay but I expect nats prep has them busy.

Brian :
My 36xBB runs very well with your P/L/R setup.  Fabulous machine work.
So far,  a few, short duration bench runs using 10% nitro/ 25% castor followed by several flights mounted on my Scrambler  using 10% nitro  and a 22% equal castor/syn blend. Needle not fully peaked just yet, although I'm confident that it could've been.
I'm getting close to feeding it more nitro- maybe  next time out.
All in all, a really neat setup.

25% nitro last eve. We're starting to pick up the pace. 35% next time. Still well behind my neighbors who are feeding theirs 50%.

Hi Brian,
          Put me down for 5 sets of the Fox 36x BB. This engine has the baffle on top of the piston. The 36x BB has a small relief on the piston to clear the rear bearing in the case. Care has to taking in not making to relief to wide to pervent sub piston induction. I think the baffle should be made stronger something like the K&B 40 because the old piston is made of steel and some of us like to run 40% nitro to hear it crackle. This piston and liner set would work in the needle bearing engines with no mods. You could make a FOX SUPER DUPER STUNT by putting it into a fox 35 stunt by changing the rod & head. The new liner would also fit the 36 shiney case but I think the 36x has a thicker rim at the top of the liner and would give you more head clearance so you would have to do some checking. Motorman is right, the needle bearing crank is slightly larger in diameter than the BB but the crank pin is the same.
Al

I have a NIB fox SUPERSTUNT and I have know ideal whatís in it  except it has a ABC  piston and liner and Hemihead with stuffer backplate is that all there is or is something else different? Is that what Fox in the day called there SS

The factory Fox 35 Super Stunt that I know of was a steel piston & liner which was a higher timed with larger intake and exhaust ports. I never ran a Super Sunt, but our local Fox 35 Stunt expert prefers the original timing. Fox did make a stock timed ABC set that's a good runner. I currently use it to power my Flight Streak and can complete the pattern with only 3oz of fuel with No Burp (can only fit a small tank on the Streak) using a venturi restrictor.
 Post a photo of the engine and the box it came in would help ID the engine.
