    Hi All
    This is BIG NEWS for Aussie Buyers who shop at ZBOX.

    The Z50 & Z80

    The Z50 is updated from the F50 ( still at AU$ 235)
    With the inclusion of Conrod Roller bearings
    on the Piston Pin,
    which replaces the Brass Bush.
    Also the Inclusion of a New
    "Super ball bearing chain guide"
    + a SPARE spark plug
    + Spare exhaust gasket
    + Spare chain clip .

    The Z80 is called "the Super Z80 kit @AU$275"
    And replaces the F80..
    And i am waiting (from Zbox) for the detailed Info of the Z80 internals,
    and whether it has the same upgrades as the Z50.

    I will update this thread when i am in the know.

    Ok-I received response from zbox regarding Z80 internals,
    & Yes is the answer!!

    Zbox is committed to sorting out the "happy time" Quallity issues from his particular supplier,
    Read the following

    "Dear Jase,
    We have spent US$40,000 on this project to bring the Chinese engine up to international quality standards. There has never been a better 2 stroke engine to come out of china until now. I don't know what more I can say. Buy with complete confidence - I am a perfectionist but haven't had the funds until now to get this project up."

    Zbox webpage has been completely updated to include the new engines

    i have used Zbox and repaced an engine after 4 weeksbecause of failed conrod bush.I replaced it with a grubee engine and would never use z box again. grubee engine far better,quieter,faster,more power,powdercoated etc.

    aussieboy and jman: just FYI: you're 'carping' on this guys' thread.

    he is giving info on a product, so this thread is not the place to either gripe about this product, nor discuss differences/similarities of other brand kits.

    EPA & ISO certificate

    The EPA & ISO certificates are now fixture on the website,
    regarding both the new Series 3
    Z50 & Z80 engines.
    with con-rod needle bearings,
    For me the EPA Certificate is Great (considering it's 2 stroke, ).

    Everyone who buys from now on can be at ease with themselves & others about the emissions factor of riding the happy time.

    I cant wait to get my new Z80..For me thats a few weeks away..

    Does anyone know if that EPA certificate is bares credit
    in the tough CALIFORNIAN EPA laws ..

    i agree with djase10 on the z50 engine
    how was it treated and maintained did he run it in or run it out, just cause it cost $235.00 doesnt make it indestroyable
    3000 engines a year in australia alone and who knows in the world
    sounds like a lack of oil to me,long hard revs or not run in
    only he would know and wouldnt tell if he did, would you
