Default Re: thatsdax friction drive engine choice?

If you want to climb rocky mountain grades without pedaling, you're probably not going to have much top "cruising speed". You might want the 4 stroke and use the smaller roller in the kit. You should be able to go faster downhills by picking up the drive roller off the tire.

Engine is a TITAN XC50 4 stroke. Roller size is 1.25 inch. Friction drive sold and made by DAX and can be found at fro around 129 bucks. Also. I did no pedalling at all. Enjoy the ride..
