The 1.355" (34.417mm) EC Intimidator Carburetor built for 1/2 Midget running methanol. The others fall short in their initial design and intent for other engine applications (most commonly 2-Stroke). While all things are possible, the XHR is a far superior carburetor from start to finish. Our Intimidator Carburetors replace our 3+3 Twilight Zone Custom-built Tillotson carburetor($600-1000+) with a blank body ready for any fuel circuit and modifications to fit any type of engine. These carburetors are built with custom plate stacks, billet needles, and our EC signature 3 piece throttle shaft. Unlike Tillotson HR carburetors that have a velocity ring (bull's eye), the Intimidator does not. These increases flow significantly without disrupting the design of the carburetor.
The XHR-8 is designed for 1/2 Midget.
Fuel: Methanol(alcohol) pure methanol only, DO NOT BUY METHANOL WITH TOP LUBE OR ADD TOP LUBE.
Caution: WILL NOT WORK WITH ETHANOL E-85 or E-91 or any other type of ethanol.
