    diesel switch over?

    Hey all, sorry if its been discussed before, i tried searching a few times to no avail (maybe its just me).
    Im really into diesel and was wondering if there is any run off the mill diesel engines one can drop in a revo? ive seen some of the conversion kits a man makes but i dont know how to get a hold of one/ if theyre sincerely worth it. Also, the airplane type-but it seems they exceed the 1K$ mark and well, are extremely large for what we have to work with.
    Elsewise im considering dropping the ball on a .26 Red dot, just wondered about the diesel setup
    Thanks for anyone who can offer some advice.

    Even with a diesel set-up, such as from Davis Diesel, you need to run special fuel which costs at least the same as nitro.

    OH not only that,,, you have to use a special head that has a variable compression setting... You think tuning these Nitro's are fun? Try that....

    I've worked with a couple of them and they are a bear to get right... Oh,, and any change in the weather,,, your back to playing with the compression as well as mixtures...

    I'll pass.

    Not worth 100$ in my opinion you could do a lot with 100$
