Default RB Killer 9 presentation

Hello from France,

I see a minor detail that I don't like. It's missing the little lugs on the crankcase for manifold springs. Minor I know but hey, we all have our quirks

Well that sux, works for me. Some real good close up internal shots on there. Maybe we can get him to post some of them in here. I tried but they are some sort of flash format that I couldn't figure out how to save.

I tried going directly to the site and still
nothing. It looks like the site is some kind
of flashplayer format.

So how does this motor perform? I'm in the market for a new engine and plan to pull the trigger on one this weekend. How's the bottom end power? What pipe works well with it? I have a Dynamite 053, would that be a good fit? What about run times? I'm having a hard time finding answers to these questions.

Probably because very few people have run it yet. I did see a guy complaining that he was having trouble keeping it running but he might be a noob, I don't know. The 053 will probably work great.

+1, if you want answers ti those questions your options are buy one and run it or wait 3-6 mos. My guess is that if this is made under contract in Asia, you're not going to get some of the things that make RB's popular, most notably long wear life.
