If it is true,the engine price will be at least double. Maybe $1,400.00USD for a .21 on-road engine.

As I know here in CA it is ban on 2 strock gasoline engines, but not for Nitro. I heard the guys will try to adopt their old engines to Nitro base fuel.

Default ban on two strokes

California has all the nutty enviromentalists , first they ban the manufactures from making them but you have some more years before they stop all use of them the old ones. they already have the four strokes on the market but once everyone is making them the price will not be much higher then the two strokes.

I know the 4 stoke ones, you have to be a muscle head to carry one of them around all day. I had them in my last business and a couple guys quit after walking around with one all day. But your right, Cali has some wacky laws. Heck, next you know they will be regulating your farts

They will also put the farts on the list of known chemicals that can cause cancer.

don't worry, the ACLU will oppose it, they will consider it un-constitutional, like everything else.

Yeah im glad I dont live in CA either. Then all my rc stuff would be cancerous. Luckily I live in FL where this stuff isnt known to cause cancer.

I always got a good laugh out of opening up servos and reading on the side this product can cause cancer....im like WTF a servo too?

Oh well.
