About February 2004 I will get first final sample. Then I have to test it for a while. The 3.5cc Buggy and 4.?cc pull-start engine will come first.

The induction window on the Dragons opens very early compared to other engines out there, but it also closes sooner.

Extending the induction cycle will help with the top end.

This engine is a standard and lasting engine. All materiala are the same with D3/5 so some engine modifiers will buy it to modify(economical ). Have reasonable power and inexpensive price. Very easy to adjust and stable which is designed for beginner or non-experienced nitro racer. If you are lazy to adjust engine every time,or hate to be played by engine,this engine will be your best choice. And...Also fast enough.
