Default Re: Now I own *two* DAX GT50r motors........

Yeah I'm sure it is a clone of a major name brand, maybe Tanaka....?

As to the power of it, I would think that at 49cc's it should be at least 2-2.5HP could be a bit more but probably not much maybe 3 at max RPM, I know I've seen some board scooters with those engines on them that seem to run pretty good, I've thought real seriously about sticking one of them on a DAX Friction Drive Kit for my wife on her 24" bike, that would be a pretty inexpension set up, less than $300 ish.

I'll bet that little engine will do a good job, I just wish it came with a fuel tank, here is the same engine with a differnt color shroud that comes with a tank and a few other goodies for $135 shipped....... what do ya think about this one?
