Default Vegas Carts stroker crank& house cam

I'm leaning towards VC stroker crank in my 420 Lifan for 440cc, with the zero deck height longer ARC rod,.. And their basic $60 house cam..

Im goung to run VC 35# springs, VC stock length pushrods,.. And stock rocker arms.


Anyone have any input/ warnings etc?

Leaving the balance shaft in place,.. And removing the governor.

I already have the NR Racing Honda UT-2 non rev limited coil.

Sounds like a great setup, though you may have to run premium fuel. I don't know if you want to run a timing key, would have to do some research.

I dont know that the longer ARC rod bumps up the compression quite that much but im not opposed to running premium

Get the new balance shaft from Vegas then you do not have to grind yours for the arc rod to clear it
Also I did this on my duromax and had to hone out the wrist pin hole on the piston but I think that is just on the duromax engines
I think I had to take .049 off the top of my piston. I did not do the striker crank though just a longer rod. While your machining stuff might as well take .050 off the head to bump up the compression a little. Also I would go with their better pushrods.
Good luck with your build.

After discussing the components with Aaron at VC,.. im done,.. I just need the motor done, right,.. get me to& fro reliably with no hiccups... I choose the easy button.

The one thing that is kinda handy/ unique is I can (well should be able to) use my Lifan flywheel (UT2) with charging circuit yatta yatta,.. and utilize my UT2 no rev limit coil..

Now to crap out $600, have to sell one of my pistols or something but I want this dundie'..

Why couldn't I be patient enough to wait until I had more funds the first go round/ ah well... its 'did, so sense dwelling on it.

Not a bad deal.

I cut .050 off the head of my 420, it came with a very thin metal head gasket. I run a 4 degree advance key with the old flywheel/ignition. This is the max you can go with regular fuel. This would knock sometimes with the stock clutch if I slowed then gassed it and it caught a high gear and lugged it for a moment before the clutch would backshift. The 94c with a spring in it does not shift down that low so now its fine.

The 460 is a nobrainer, you get a lot in that deal. I would have put one in but they didn't have that deal then.
