Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

LOL. Perhaps they have

All new engines look good in the box

But I can say this. If I were able to get my hands on the DA70 Twin.
I would give it an honest Chance. Actually have something I mind to put it in. With pipes and all
The EME70 may be alright. But I have done enough Beta testing for the past year. I will hand the job over to others now.
I have time . I can sit back and watch next season unfold

Yes Brad....proven for so many years though. It's called quality! No need too worry about their ability to provide some of the best engines on the planet....Nothing but the best materials and people, not just out to rape you of your hard earned money time and time again!!

Really no different than Trevor buying the very first in the line-up of ZDZ's. When you invest in quality products you don't worry about the repetitive and ongoing failures of the crap on the market.

Well the "non quality" companies are owning up and replacing parts or complete engines at no cost to the customer tells me a lot too

I wonder how MVVS and 3W handled this stuff in there earlier days? Anyone got experience in this??

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

I have had a new 3W 157CS that needed a replacement crankcase. Was done "free of charge and shipping" by Gerhard!

The great thing about it is, I had a quality engine when completed, not the ongoing problems re-occurring time and time and time and time again...year after year after year!
