    Yes i have to agree with everyone looks simply amazing, BUTTTT, if a ring goes bad and destroys your head and cylinder/jug. Your out some $$$$. but then again if i had the $$$$$$ i would've done it to lol. Great looking and problebly the best looking HT iv'e ever seen so far.

    i dont know if you can tell from the pictures but what i did was paint the engine with black engine paint then sanded down the fins with a dremeltool (got to love the dremel) so dont really know if it will overheat and is a new engine so im running 20 to 1 mix to keep it cool for the break in i guess whell just have to see but i have a backup engine for parts . also another thing i did was cut the exhaust pipe and built a baffel inside it using a smaller piece of pipe and dremmeled out slits and bent them inward on the insert pipe and it actually worked to quiet it down i drilled to holes and bolted it inside the exhaust pipe its about 14 inches long with about 12 slits that are bent down intoo the pipe to block the sound i was suprised that it actually worked it still loud but was way louder with just running a straight pipe larry ca

  16. I hate chrome. I would make more sense to plate the inside of the cylinder.
