The other monster on pipes is the 160RV-J... Stronger than a piped DA170 and I bet would give the 3W170 a serious run!!
Trevor, I do have 2 X ZDZ160 RV-J. looking forward to one of them flying next spring.

Still the 180 is my dream engine.
But I often wonder how the GP176 would do on RE3's.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Brad I know of a young farm son that worked evenings in a tow truck. Ended up with an abandoned import, did the same thing with one of Dads discarded tractors. Burned the hell out of the pasture. Dad, told him to park it!
I have seen that before. Very funny.

Dale.. We've done that test and there's no competition. Brad can elaborate but he had a GP176evo on the front on his 50% Ultimate and then the ZDZ180... Both of which used the same props and both on RE2's.

Static rpm on the ground was close (about 100rpm less for the GP). But night and day in the air. This is what has made us realize the importance of mid-range torque. The ZDZ180 is a pure monster and in the air at top speed the ZDZ180 also unloads way more.

That being said, the GP is a very strong motor... But no match for the ZDZ.
