The runout , end play etc are next to zero. It is a well made piece.

Couldn't agree more Hanes. Those 3W's are quality units!! I absolutely loved my 3W110cs and the 55cs.. huge refinement. And was always nice to see it beat on the DA120 and come very close to the GP123 with less displacement.

That's the kind of information that helps customers solve fit problems. Such as what Jack went through last week.

It should be no secret. It is the insides that make the performance.

The unknown. Coupled with the known, and availability of RE3's helped me get a set for my upcoming ZDZ180. No delivery date yet on the large smooth pipes.
Lorne, are you going to install a set in your 126" Slick?
I for one would like to see them perform. I'm sure they will be everything or more than what is on the market today.

So they are lighter than 320 grams each?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Dale... Thanks to Lorne and Dave at Planebender, Dave is sending me a pair of his prototypes to test!!!

Game plan is to test a DA150 on Proflows, RE3's and the Large Smoothpipes. Then I plan to test the same 3 exhausts on my MVVS190 quad. Then a ZDZ160rvj on the same 3!!!!

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Trevor, did you buy a ZDZ 160? I knew you were looking for one. Or, is it Andy's?

I will be looking forward to the test results. You always do a great job of documenting all the results.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Is Andy's out of his Edge?
If so, possibly upgrading?

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Hey, I'm thinking that the 160 comes with RE3's!
