Default Re: New (old) stuff

My dad came by yesterday, so we went for a ride.

He started out on the 66cc huffy, I was on the skyhawk. The huffy is several pounds lighter, but he weighs 300+. I am under 190, so I figured him on the bigger engine bike with the lighter frame would be more fair.

I would rip past him without a sweat.

So after a mile or so, we swapped. He's now on the heavier bike with the smaller motor, and I'm on the lighter bike with the bigger engine. I'm able to pull away at first, but once we get going up around 20, the skyhawk bike flys by me.

It's official, the 48 is better for now.

Next steps:
-do all the port timing measurements that I said I was going to do but haven't.
-tear the 66 apart and balance that shaky rotating assembly
-port the 66 to equal that of the 48
