Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Paul... really excited to see the ZDZ56!!! The 112 is the gem of the class - refinement to the hilt! The headerlength with the ES pipes on the ZDZ112 is complete butter!!. Sorry Buttermilk, LOL!!

On a pipe? You would get an atta-boy for that.

I thought that ZDZs were only seconded in heavy weight by 3Ws? I thought if you wanted lite you had to go ct ?

I'm looking forward to the 160. LIKE ANDY'S

-Dale-
Me to!

I had a H9 33% Edge 540 with a ZDZ80 then the ZDZ80RV-J and really loved the linear response of those engines.

One note. ZDZs like it WET! Meaning it takes about 8 flips on choke before she'll even wake up. After the "POP" only a few more flips and she's on fire!
