MOST OF ALL GOOD LUCK

ON A side note..

Jaz Sam is probably like most of us when he tries something new and well priced and it works well for the time being you want to say you've found a quality product at a lower cost..I know i felt this way when my sts broke in and people were like what is that.."It's an STS baby" was my quote but soon after that all the stuff i mentioned in a previous post happened...



yer thats right JAZ, these are awsome quality

haha I wasn't implying they were good quality i was saying they weren't....too many quality control issues,bad carbs,crap stock bearings, If you rebuilt the motor frequently you might see 5 gallons on it lol

Dude, your signature reads "SIRIO", having run a few sirio's I know we would not be having this conversation about Sirio's engine, and please dont start making references to my questions, I was generally interested in hearing from Sam-E, what his reasons for the blind faithfulness were. I am not trying to make fun, or start any Brand wars!! Nor am I looking to argue with anyone, so unless you are Sam-E, let him answer his own questions, Please.

Thumbs up

I like the STS motors for a number of reasons, they
  1. are easy to tune (if Joel can tune one anyone can!!!! just ask Keiffer or Dan)
  2. cheap, I can get 3 sts motors for the price of one RB
  3. provide good fuel economy
  4. are powerful and quick
  5. parts are cheap as well, but you genrally dont need parts!!!

well at least you are satisfied and while it's true you can purchase 3 for the price of 1 the 1 will almost always out last the three so my question to you is...is it really cheaper?

but hey can't knock your preference run what you run I know I do...so like JAZ said go win some races

I highly doubt Adam Drake ran an STS! Any proof of this? There would be sponsorship issues.
