...but if ya can't be bothered to hand the cam to a buddy in a chase car or film the GPS, don't bother to post what speeds ya think ya reached as honestly? The folks who know these motors are either laughing at ya, or really want to know ALL of the exact details down to the last MPH precisely - because after all, with these tiny lil motors it really is about the most fractional gains.

Without proof - it's all jus' stories *shrug*
BarelyAWake, this last posting was awesome. Thank you for sharing your thoughts...seriously, post of the month material. Very insightfull, again thank you!!!

No worries, Barely, i don't take anything personally. especially over the internet...

i agree with you, and my post wasn't aimed at you, even what i quoted from you was used as an example. there's a lot of people out there that don't think these motors can do anything. i like proving those people wrong.

i also agree on the proof. which is kinda funny since i've never posted any, but at least i have reliable witnesses.

tomorrow, i'm meeting up with a couple people, with a GPS and a video camera, so...

The engine imbalance is the greatest hindrance these engines have. Maybe the chinese factory finally ran out of the out-of-balance parts and now are utilizing ones that give better balance.
So your telling me he just so happened to get a motor that is balanced,lighter piston and or flywheel????Your out of control....This guy has a stock motor like the rest of us and it doesnt even have a aftermarket carb,exaust pipe or anything else....
IF I CANT FIX IT,IT ISN'T BROKEN!....ummmmmmm so I thought....
