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.
Trevor, you mention RE2's. Jack did last eve in a corispondance. Saying he would be using RE2's on his 150L. I thought that the 80-90cc cylinders required RE3's.
Please enlighten me.

Thank-you in advance,

Having mentioned mid-range for a number of years to a number of different parties....glad you gents are noticing!!

The ZDZ's have always been strong contenders....just poor service and parts availability in the past and likely the present..
