LOL!! Oh ya... really worn out There was some serious debate here about what to get... the smartest would have been the GP. Impossible to beat the service of GP with Lorne and Fergie.

I noticed Dan's 123 was fixed on the spot. That'd be a 4-week round trip to DA for service and 4-month round trip to ZDZ, LOL.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Oh my

The ZDZ180-Shine. LOL

They sure did a whicked machining job... no tool marks! Nicer looking case than DA or MVVS.

Need to order exhaust from Lorne now

I have to check, but I think the original 180 was sub 8lbs, so it looks like the shine added weight, LOL.

engine weight thread has 7.79lb for old model.
Should i use your favorite label "PORKCHOP"!

You put some exhaust bolts on it and its gets pretty close to the GP176evo at 8.3lbs

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Wow... big weight increase for shine, eh!!??

I wasn't able to look up the weight on Hane's Google spreadsheet with my BBerry here.

Almost worthy of Brick status, LOL.

When we went for training for the machine they had another machine cutter out an F-15 jet from a piece of billet aluminum just for shits and giggles. Was pretty neat to watch it widdle that thing out with details of panels lines and rivets. The plane was only about 4 inches long
