I built myself a few of these from components and call them TeeDeeReedie. Very fast engines and spin the 5*4 black COX Int'l prop at higher than 20k when unload in the air. They run about 6min on 1/3 oz of fuel.

Thank you very much for the reply. That is what I was hoping to hear!

Agreed with Andras, this combination
of parts and mods works well together.
I have an EX Model Lynx, and it's a
good, high reving engine.

I know I'm asking late in the game...but what is special about the backplate?

I get the HD crank (longevity), and the Piston)cylinder (better flow).

Is the venturi on the backplate a special size?

Thanks in advance...off to do more searches.

The venturi has larger diameter and thus restricts the flow less than the regular backplate. Nevertheless I still jam a small wire mesh into the KB backplate intake as a filter and see the engine performance retained without any impact by this small choking.

Hi Balogh,

Thanks for the answer. I thought I read that some place (can't find where, though).

Does this then mean I need to pressurize the tank? I'm thinking uniflow or some method of pressure from the engine...but then how do we get pressure from the engine? Or am I over thinking it?

Any chance I can take a normal, white backplate and drill it out to the same size?
What is the size?

I'm just looking for ways to pep you product engine short of replacement.

Again, I appreciate the schooling!

You do not need to pressurize the tank because the venturi cross section at the spraybar is narrow enough to generate the same suction as in the regular backplates . The rest of the venturi is wider than regular backplates thus pressure losses in the KB are less.

It was pushing 19K, one of my first vids and didn't realized tach was out of sight. As you can see it really sucked down the fuel quickly.
