Hello all,
I am picking up a 1997 Formula s 380 soon. I have read all about how they are very slow, and blah blah blah, but its an extremely good deal, and I can't pass it up. I had a few questions about the sled.
-How is the overall reliability?
-Any common problems to watch out for?

ALSO It runs but is missing the exhaust from the motor out
-Has anyone ever put a different exhaust on a 380 than stock?
-Did it require rejetting?

ALSO I was just dreaming about some possibilities
- Has anyone ever put risers on this sled?
-Did it require new/longer cables?
-How tall do stock cables permit for a riser?

-Would a rotax 440 fan bolt right up?
-Has anyone ever swapped in a 440 rotax fan?

Sorry for all the questions, very anxious and excited!
Thanks in Advance
Sam

Yeah I understand there slow but I'm only 16 and I'm used to an old phazer which tops out around 50-60 anyways.

Has anyone ever done a 380-440 swap? Is there clutch alignment issues or fitment issues between exhaust, and also with airbox/carbs?

Ok so basically sounds like a 440 swap would not be very hard just need 440 exhaust. How about the electronics. How do they differ between the motors? Would wiring harness just connect straight to 440 motor?

I already have the 440 motor and exhaust. will the wiring harness from the formula s chassis plug right in to the 440 motor?
