Re: [B]why haven't the 2 stroke kit designers thought of this?[/B]
The issue is timing, to make the engine run in reverse. I'm not certain what all is involved but there have been discussions here about reversing the rotation of the China 2 stroke engines. Maybe someone here with more engine experience can shed some light on this for you. I can see where mounting could offer some challenges but the exhaust would not be difficult. Everything else should hook up without much effort. Keep us posted if you try your idea.
