    I need your opinion. Both of them are good but i need to decide which of them has better quality and better performance. I've heard that Flying Horse are good and so is Thatsdax engines.

    Thatsdax = $244

    Flying Horse = $169

    Help me decide :D

    flying horse is a version of the china girl engines, completely stock.
    not 100 %so dont quote me but im fairly sure dax engines are balanced (very desireable in these engines) and have other minor (but important) tweaks and upgrades that youll end up doing yourself to the flying horse.

    theres a price difference for a reason and you get what ya pay for, good luck!

    And if you buy the balanced version you have to assemble the top end yourself. Granted, judging by the posts on here about the Dax balanced lower, it's worth the extra cost and time spend buying and assembling the top end.

    balanced means the crank is balance. straight off the factory line the crank isnt balanced which gives you the vibrations that many of us have. if its balance u should see minimal vibrations and just a whole lot better with u enjoying ur ride and such, not saying u wont with an unbalanced crank. just preference

    Another thing to think about also is that Duane at ThatsDax is a great guy and he has excellent customer service, he's a straight shooter and stands behind what he sells, never had nothing but good experience with him and never heard anyone else have a single bad thing to say about how he conducts his business, thats a big plus in my book...

    Keep the unicorn . To even think a flying horse would possibly even try to keep up even with Dax motor is ludicrous . And I'll go as far to say this, after running the new "GP360 BALANCED BOTTOMEND" you can put the GT-5 & PK-80 in trash bin with the Unicorn . Unless you order fries to go with the shakers!laff
