LOL, the thought crossed my mind.
I like DLE, but I will only buy them NEW.

This purchase is going to be second hand so only DA's I will buy used, and maybe 3W.
Tried to grab a NEW 150L but that didn't pan out.. stupid work

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I bought my Sukhoi on that sale. Alberta price out the door, here in Edmonton.

$1474.19

And it fits in a mini-van.

Nicely done. Again another angle I never played.
As the saying goes, we learn from our pocket books!

If the 3w170 is anything like the 110cs..... Then Hell yes!!~!

DA170 was second on my short list, but seems to be first in line so why fight it LOL
My 170CS is a torque monster and loves big props. It really shows it's stuff in the air when you punch it. acceleration is instantaneous.

As for my DA170 it was nothing special on cans or mufflers. As soon as I added a set of RE3's it was a totally different engine and became a raging animal.

What a steal of a deal. By the time I got my Extra 260 home I was looking at $2300.
