2 litre racing

I may be buying a phantom 21 and racing it in 2 litre next year but i have a few questions, ive already got a 2.5 200 black drop on powerhead could i put this on a 15 " mid ? can i use a powerlift? what mods can i do to engine if any ? can i use a prop of my choice ? in fact any information on what i can and cant do would be usefull.
And last of all is it worth racing or just do the basics ?

Try this link;

This info may be from an older PB1 (rule book) but I think it is up to date especially given the 'old style' engine yr running.

According to that i cant use my 2.5 block even though its only 200hp, looks like i'll put my efi on and just do the basic races.

although obviousely not ass fast, the 2 litre racing loks to be really quite good, close-stuff & very competative. Probably more fun than having the fastest machine and doing the basics.

but heh; take no notice of me, i'm to scared to go racing!

You can use yr 2.5 block as it is a standard/stock 200hp powerhead from a homologated engine.

Likewise the 15" leg is also ok as is from a homologated engine.

Yr set up is similar to anyone running an XS200 head on a 15" leg - I think there are boats with this???

By the look of the for sale section & comments made + other boards on the net, looks like it could be very thing in 2ltr next season.
Hope not it is the most amazing class with tight & close racing

I don't reckon you can mix and match parts from different homologated engines.
I also reckon 3C has either the xr2, or the xs200 as the main homologated engines, with some other epa ones too:

But, the (UK only) F200 concept is to allow you to race more or less any 200hp motor. So the 2.5 200 will be fine.
