Hi,

This is my first post, so I hope it's not one that everyone reads and gasps, 'D'oh, how can he not know that...'

Anyway, I've a Ninco Clio with an NC5 Speeder motor. Nice car, but the club I go to only races RX41's. - Is it possible and easy to mount an RX41 in my Clio?

I have no access to anything beyond basic domestic tools, so would appreciate guidance along the lines of buy this adapter or that plate etc rather than having to make anything.

All help much appreciated!

Really!!

I didn't think it would! Not that I've tried, of course! But the brackets supplied by Ninco for the original Clio for the NC2/5 motor and the SCX motor are different.

The RX4 is a longer motor. If you want to fit it you will have to modify the chassis.

If this is allowed, then I suggest you buy a Ninco "Spanish Motor" adapter, cut out the appropriate rectangle from the chassis and glue it in.

If not, buy a Ninco Scooby and buy the alternative chassis, which accepts the old mounts.

Really!!??


I didn't know that, McLaren! Got a part no. for that alternative chassis by any chance? And have they done alternative chassis for any of the other NC2/5 motored cars? That could be the answer for Buddha, if they do it for the Clio (New type-with suspension).

To try and summarize for you Buddha;

I was assuming you were talking about the latest Clio (with suspension), and if you are, you definitely can not fit the RX4 SCX motor into your existing chassis, as Mclaren points out.

If you were actually referring to the original Clio (NC1 fitted via a motor bracket) then you can buy an adaptor bracket, part no. 70106 " suplemento motor especial", and click your RX4 straight in. As you said you have an NC5 motor to replace, and if you are talking about an original Clio, you would already have experience of changing the motor bracket.

Hope we're finally getting somewhere

Welcome to the forum


The shaft on the RX-41 is a bit longer than on the NC-5 so you will have to shorten (and deburr!!!) it, but other than that you should have no problem with it... solder wires on instead of the spring contacts, and off you go

The actual motor is too long for the chassis hole. It simply will not fit, no matter how much cutting of the motor shaft.

Here's the Scooby chassis (Part 80826):



Unfortunatly, they dpn't do this kind of chassis for any of the other new cars.

That can't be right! Look at the photos. The NC5 is WAY bigger than that teensie little SCX motor. 8>)

Thanks for all the replys so far - and the words of welcome.

The clio is indeed the recent one with suspension. - I was aware that for the 'early' cars fitted with an NC1 motor that a conversion plates was available - just wasn't sure about these newer motors.

So if I really want to run a Ninco rally car with an SCX motor, the ONLY car I can use is a recent Subaru in conjunction with the 80826 chassis.

Looks like I've got to go shopping! - Cheers all.

Interesting! I wonder why they did that? I see that according to Sean's site 80836 is also a Subaru chassis which accepts the motor brackets-Prorace perhaps. It would be good if they did similar for Saxo, Punto, Mini and Clio as we run Ninco hatches with RX4s in at Farnham and it would help introduce a bit of variety.

And CG, your mission, should you choose to accept it, is fitting a 16D in a Caterham!

Hmmm - pictured is a engine with "Pro Turbo Plus" written on it - is someone in the pay of a certain Jexy!!?

Why doesn't your club drag itself into the 21st century and use NC5, we have a Clio class at our club and it provides the closest racing we have on our calendar though out the year.

.......sorry a bit harsh, but all this hassle about fitting RX motor into a Clio!

Perhaps my initial post was a little simplistic - The class concerned is 'Ninco Rally' and motors allowed are NC1 and RX41 - This class has existed for a few years - I've been a member a few weeks.

My question was borne from the fact that I have a recent 'Ninco Rally' car albeit with an 'illegal' motor.

Gives me 3 choices;

1. Get an old Ninco Rally off an online auction or similar
2. Put a 'legal' motor in my car - hence this thread
3. Don't race this class

Option 3 doesn't really appeal (D'oh!) and I've not found an old Ninco Rally to buy, but thanks to the help posted earlier I know that option 2 isn't really an option with a Clio.

Thanks again all for the guidance.
