Brent... it was just a theory of mine about a slightly detuned version. But just a theory to potentially explain a couple hundred rpm less than what we were getting here. Nothing confirmed, so I don't want to start any rumours, LOL

Detuned or not, the advantage that can't be felt with a simple run-up on the ground is the insane torque and response in the low-mid range that nothing else can match (perhaps the MVVS175 - we'll see).

The ZDZ180 is the Ferrari of the twin class and will outpace even some of the strongest 210-220cc engines.

This summer I will be able to confirm what you said!
I'll be equipped for the World Championship IMAC2014 with 2 aircrafts ready to go, the first with ZDZ180B2-J and MTW-RE03 and the second with a ZDZ210B2-J with XL150 canister.
