Buy one cheap and get a DD 2 stroke... then have Ronnie put the DD in it.

That's sorta my plan for the next skoolie.

I was thinking more like a 6-71T. But a 6v71 or 92 would be fine with me.

Those old 2 strokes are heavy and tall. Not sure how well they'd fit in an IC low pro chassis.

Love the idea though.

The dimensions on some DD's would work. The chassis being low doesn't affect engine room. That's the same. The low chassis just means less room to crawl under the bus and a harsher ride.

I thought the VT-365 and the maxxforce 7 aren't good engines for skoolie users?

People with strong backgrounds in diesel engines and shop space/time to do head studs could find the VT365 to be a decent option.


The Maxxforce motors are outright garbage and not worth anyone's time, however.
