O.S. 30VG (P) ES ABL

The big block with big versatility.

While most .30-size engines are all about power, the 30VG has a square design that suits it perfectly for any 1/8 scale application. The 30VG's muscle is a natural for your monster trucks, but it can also be dropped into a buggy or on-roader for incredible speeds.

  • Comes with an SG (pilot) shaft (P), #8 glow plug and #203 air filter.
  • The crankshaft is oversized for durability, with a rubber-sealed front bearing and a rear bearing that's oversized to carry torque loads.

Engine Head
An engine of this size requires extra cooling capacity, and the 30VG delivers. The blue-anodized head's massive surface area combines with fins on the crankcase to carry heat away – and is V-shaped for better clearance.
