Some. I would love to build a set of harnesses. This could be a great event going into the evening. Followed by the Rum talk.

We all know, nothing around here could pull that 180 backwards.

Re: The never ending engine thread, East-West

Guys... Just got 4 successful flights on the new GP123 V2... Exact same rpm as my V1... 6740rpm on a Falcon 29x9. The old carb ran perfect on this one. It's tight and needs more breakin. I honestly don't see any difference except I now have to break in a new motor.

Now I'm wondering with the new porting and piston (Fergie confirmed both are different), whether I'm now a bit off on headerlength for the ES pipes and I'm leaving power on the table hear??

Ran flawless like my V1. Not sure what else I can say.

The length might be different Trevor. You might realize a bit more after break-in as well. Anyway, definitely a better engine design than V1 I'm sure and with lots of power.
