    Not surprised. The piston is the same, the scavenging port setup is the same and the exhaust is the same. The only real change is CDI to create a spark since the motor isn't a compression ignition setup. The reason that a dirt bike sounds different is displacement and reed valves. You're hearing the braap braap out of a dirt bike because it's going back to idle frequently. If you were to leave it at high rpms you would hear similar sounds as a nitro trying to make do with one or two gears.

    The real gain is cheaper fuel and the possibility of not having to tune it as often. I bet it still is a PITA once the piston/cylinder wear too far and lose compression just like nitro.

    Wish it sounded better too. I can see many companies trying to make a tuned pipe that sounds better and gets better performance. I can also see this engine getting stuffed in darn near everything!

    Hmm….Interesting…..I've been waiting for somebody to make a gasoline engine for 8th scale work out…..I'd like to see this engine in a Short Course truck (Like an SC8) and maybe a buggy or truggy. Cheap Fuel, Less Tuning….I like that, especially since I have no luck in the nitro field. I just can't keep them running right for some reason…...LOL
