Buy the convetsion kit from someone like RC Extreme Power. Easy enough to do yourself.

Everything I've read says the EI makes them run much smoother and I'd like to put an optical kill switch on it but I don't think I can make it work with the magneto.

I was hoping to find someone that did a conversion like Ralph Cunningham did.

There ya go .... the master is still doing his craft.

EI will make an engine run smoother at idle because of the retarded ignition, but little difference at full throttle. EI is easier to start and live with.

Super simple. It is a 15 minute, bolt on application.
With directions..

Yeah, but if he sends it to Ralph he can do the rest of his modifications on it too.

I would like to hear what else he does? The top speed from our club still stands with one of
Ralph s 62's. I did not know he did anything other than ignition?The owner of that engine since rebuilt it and it never was the same. Do tell.

A little known fact is that Ralph is actually a Wizard. He casts a magic spell on every engine he touches.

I talked with Ralph yesterday and got my G-62 shipped off to him for his EI conversion, this should make for a great setup.
