Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Jack... we've got (3) ZDZ112's running around here and they are working great! A very nice engine and really light. I may be way off base here, but it seems the ZDZ's need to be treated a little more gentle during break-in with good cooling. If that's a success, they seem to be very reliable and hassle free and can take a serious beating!!

I'm a big fan of the 112's... really smooth, awesome throttle response and light!!

Undoubtedly be a great combination! I am very seriously considering THE ZDZ 112 for my new project...but the price makes me vibrate a bit...
Same price as the Shiney 120 or the red 110.

Only, it has less vibes and less weight. But it doesn't shine. So basically it has nothing going for it....... hmmmmmm Best you move along then and find something else

Trevor, my findings from years gone by are the same. Should even be better now.
