You know, rule #1 under engines would suggest the Fox 36X piston and sleeve would make it a combat engine and be outlawed?

The rules say Fox 35 stunt engine with a maximum displacement of .352 C.I. That is leaving the door open for replacement part to be used in a Fox 35 stunt engine. Over the years Fox made a few different style pistons and heads, plus Steel, ABC, Ceramic piston and liner sets. They even made a High compression head for the 35 stunt. So how would you police all that?

Easy, if the exhaust port in the sleeve is up to the top of the cut out in the case it's a combat engine. It doesn't matter, you can't put the rain back in the sky and I think they dropped the event from Brodaks anyway.

even though one of the best .Brodaks is not the only game in town

not that it matters if u match the stock 35 sleeve timing to the combat timing ,it would look the same as a combat looking through the exhost port

       Fox also made the Super Stunt that came with different more aggressive timing. I agree with Bob that this is a cool fun event and you can mod the stock timing to what the combat engines have anyway so what’s the difference. I know Brodak drop the event but I will still bring my Fox Speed model to Brodak to fun fly because people enjoy the novelty of it. We will still run Fox Speed in NJ using Power Master  GMA 10% nitro 22% oil fuel. The Fox stunt engine can have guts changed but the exterior of the case must not be modified, so if you can make it a .60 without changing the appearance of the case, bring it to Middlesex we love to see it go. In are club there are 5 people that have them and one more that is being built.

I see, it's not combat timed it's super stunt timed. I guess that's ok then.

I've got 3 of these engines that are loaded for bear. Don't know why I built them, guess I was just bored. Anyway, might get around to building a plane and driving up there one of these days.

Are these always run with 25 castor and 5 nitro? I thought some were using other fuel?
