Cory, they have a lot of torque and don't lose it as readily as the twins, without having to go to the somewhat peaky range of pipes. Can run on cans or muffs and still outrun the 170cc class. The only one that can outperform is the 185cc ZDZ on pipes.

They are smooth, expensive....aaaaaaand supercool in every aspect!

Most of all Cory....cause I wanted it!!!!!

John, you and I understand that. I believe Brent has not seen an airframe of this size/power up close yet. But he will sooner than he might ever have thought.
When he started a few years ago, I'm sure he never pictured himself flying 120cc so soon.

Ha, I'm done! Nothing over a 100cc for me. I don't know where to source the goodies to go under the hood.

The angles on that fuse of Jack's are a cool way to add strength to the firewall. I no engineer, but have fabricated enough stuff to know the value of avoiding 90 degree intersections where strength is required.

The tunnel in that must be something! Hope it all fits together without a hitch, and serves a long "Best Before" date!
