I always said GP was over priced for what it is.

I wonder if it is the manufacturer or the retailers ?

What do you think I found
Hmmmmmmm...let's think on this a bit!

Likely designings, stampings, and machining that's trying to mimic "the 2 best engines in the world"!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Week-end project. See if I can be patient enough to be the last GP176 owner to lift a jug.
How does this wear on my resale value ? I doubt I would expect to sell it. Does all I ask of it. Execpt go to work for me, damn.
Later, Dale.

Although, I know people who have used 2 stroke engines for a lifetime and still suck at tuning 'em!!! They always blame the engine...... doesn't matter who built it.
Brent, everytime I find you on RC Canada you have a different screen name and very few posts . Can't decide on a name hey

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Maybe, just maybe, GP is a step ahead of DA. They are grinding off the emblem on the connecting rod as part of the Balancing/Blueprinting process!

Wadaya thick Jack?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Lesson learned by me today ... never suggest that DA could have handled the GP Conrod fiasco better/different

Soon it's gonna be a far bigger thread than East vs West, LOL!... gonna be East vs West and South

There is a shytdisturber, we were expecting you. Just a few more yet. Primarily from the east.
One Albertan missing, oh and a few westerners yet. Going to be a great week-end.

I best catch up on the Crying Giants engine forum. I'll be back.
