Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I think the ES-55 pipes are a little small for the 62cc cylinders of the GP123, coupled with the fact that I've been really beating on this combo... The pipes have started to leak exhaust through the epoxy/weave of pipes and have turned brown.

I was talking to Lorne and he has some new no-name pipes that look very, very similar to the SmoothPipes at a whicked price.

Here they are next to the ES pipes. Over the next week I'll be testing these on the Gp123 at various header lengths to see how they perform

Great news Trevor. As I am running ES55 Composite pipes on my GP123. Header length as per your set-up. Mine are nice and quiet. Flew 6 more flights today. But if you like the No-Name pipes, I might try a set as well.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Huckfest 2015, Western Canada!

Sounds like the Trout Farm Fliers are willing to host a Huckfest in 2015.
Proposed dates Aug long week-end 2015. Same week-end as the local Big Valley Jamboree, Country music festival. For the ladies (sneaky hey).

Hope we can generate some interest.
