I ask, hey what about me? (!) Our kids look at me, Mom said not to get you guy's anything. As Arlene is showing off her ring from me.

Pro R/C came to the rescue.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Thank-you Jack.
But no answer back on how much header drop. Which I posted to an American site.
I really should ask Lorne (Pro R/C). But he has none in stock yet to get measurements.

Would he have dimensions? I should ask.

But won't you get the required drop for a twin?

Can you figure how much lower the exhaust port exits compared to a twin?

Then you would know the required drop for a single!

Good point!
I read that twice but it does make sense. Let's see if there are any instructions. You know how the latest/greatest provide instructions, manuals, etc.

No lets go 26*. Or was it just move it back 2*, left or right?
Who mentioned anything about a GP88. I'm old enough to know I have not changed my mind.

Let me repeat this "WingBurner" guy.

LOL.
