    Smoother low to mid, with about the same amount of top end. Much easier to drive. Was drag racing a guy down the straights with a WS7 3 at the last big club race and caught him with ease. He had his motor set on WS7 kill and I had mine just a tick rich. Better fuel economy, I am getting just over 8 minutes on a XB8 tank (120cc+ fuel lines), versus about 7+ minutes with my WS7 2. A little more tuning with the new pipe and I think the runtime and power would go up a notch.

    Homer Allman (tiltyard) has ran one recently and clamied it's his new favorite engine.

    Had a fair day yesterday. Qualified for the buggy A in the 6th spot and made it to 4th place after 20 min. top 5 so thats fine with me. TQ worked awesome with no breaks.

    Bumped from the B into the A in MT and scored 5th place.

    No carnage and no mud,, but a hot day, and a whole lotta fun.
