Default XCELL 99 converted to gas

MA-XCELL 99 SE ACH conversion to a gasser.

I'm interested in possibly converting this model into a gasser. I'm a newbie to the gasser models, so I know this won't come easy.

I'm wondering if someone could provide an exact parts list, with the included brand and size motor.

Thanks

PM rbort here and he should be able to help you. He seems to know all there is to know of those era MinAir gassers.

Only thing IM coming up with is, doubling up on the upper and lower frames, frame spacers, motor.

I've been told this is going to be pricey, but I just so happen to have the lower frame bits already. I also have the heavy duty gasser clutch and fan hub.

What else?

Default Question

Are you the same guy who PM'd me on the rim asking about this and wanting me to do the conversion for him?

I answered back to that guy that it might not be cost effective if you need to buy all the related parts. But if you have some of them already, it would be easier to come by.

You will need:

Metal upper frames or thicker top frames (for gasser 90-92 thousands for nitro was 78-80 thousands) or 2nd set of top frames cut out center section and double up around bearing blocks.
Lower frames
105-10 Front plate
Lower rails 105-94 and 105-96
4 long dogbones with screws
2 x 11mm spacers for attaching the front graphite 99SE radio tray to the engine mechanics.
clutch
bell with triple bearing block
fan and bolt
shroud and plate with bolts
engine and 2 spacers with bolts
rear mount plate for engine with bolt
muffler

I told the other guy it might be cheaper to just buy a Spectra or new whiplash when it comes out than to spend funds on these items unless you want to have a blinged 1005 gasser which would be a nice machine as the 99SE kit was the top of the line all upgraded from the factory.

I've had many replies on this topic, and I'm just going to leave well enough alone. It would just be easier to go out and buy the Spectra G, and be done. Thanks for the help.

Or take a serious look at the Radikal G-30 Carbon CEFB fybarless kit with the all metal head and tail. And if you prefer a shaft driven tail over the stock belt driven unit, you can add the CN1341C1 torque conversion. Total cost would be about the same.
