    Several sites are advertising the HS engine 4 stroke kits for under $300. If you notice these sites only show one view of the motor itself and never show the gearbox side...nor do they tell you that it has a piece of crap "Hoot" gearbox.....These engines are great but the gearbox is terriable...

    You get what you pay for. I agree that HS is the only chinese clone co that makes a quality motor.

    I agree with you. That nice HS motor will not take you anywhere for long through a crummy gearbox.
    There is supposed to be a new version the the G4 belt drive being sold now. I haven't heard if they solved the problem of the one way bearing seizures.
