Going by retail numbers only, dle120 vs gp 123.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Fair enough.
Are the specs out yet? Or, are we a little early?
Truth be known, I'm not so sure all the details are easy to locate for the GP 123 either.

Cory, I don't all the specific's...first off there is a new owner of MVVS. So these are his designs.

Yes the engine is easier to mount, new crankcase, but along with that I believe there's quite a few improvements internally.

Although they don't list any improvement we'd have to have one to compare.

Again it is forum hype. So the specs avail are limited Half of these firms aren't sure what they are assembling IMO. Just as long as it sells and the client pays cash

Well, that is the nice part about being patient. We can wait a while. See what we are given as fact.

It's got me curious, I'll see what I can dig up for threads on the new engine.

The funky mounting didn't seem like much of a drawback to me. A dremel, hacksaw, and some rectangular aluminum tubing solved the problem for me. But if you're not into that part of the hobby (or don't have helpful friends to call upon like I do) I guess I could see it being a deterrent. Especially now, with a lighter generation of engines out and ARFs coming with firewalls pre-marked for them.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Would have been nice if the MVVS Engineers thought about the environment and saved some Aluminum for others

MVVS116 = porkchop to the extreme!! (sorry - Ken's pictures of the pig has me going, LOL)

A common opinion, but it's all in how you look at it.... Most people say the 116 is the heaviest 100cc class motor going... I think of it as one of (if not THE) lightest 150cc class motors available. When I had it, it flew my 42lb edge with all the authority I needed and I only sold it to try electric.

Most things look a lot better when you see them in the right circumstance... Kens pic being a great example. Look how pretty that pig looks when contrasted with the UGLY of Futaba!
