SH Engines PT21XT3-P8 .21 On Road Engine
I am not an owner of this engine but a friend of mine bought this engine and during break in his engine started to run funny. He took it apart and the con rod bushing was worn and the piston and head button were ruined. I’m pretty sure the way to prevent this is to add a head shim but it is a good idea to either have the shim there from factory or put in the description that a head shim is needed. I’m sure the engine is very good when shimmed and tuned well but the fact that happened is very unfortunate. Thankfully the engine isn’t crazy expensive.

It has good top end but never could get the LSN right and the overall carb just never seemed to dial in (I'm not new to nitro). Even after proper break-in and a gallon of fuel the LSN needed to be set to almost 100% in but engine was still getting too much fuel on the low side (HSN was spot on). After much frustration bought a REDs, put it in the same car, same fuel, same fuel lines, same fuel tank and it runs like a champ, required very little tuning.

SH engines are amazing for the amount of money. So far the engine runs great and is very strong. Cant wait to see the car go around a track.

Fast engine. Have not run it much so cannot say what the reliability is. Had one problem with the carb but it was fixed by a local hobby shop.
