    Bigger is better, just don't forget the Baja was designed for 2.5hp
    Better wear safety glasses when you pull the trigger LOL!!!

    I'd say, take some time with the stocker to get a feel for the baja. After that, hell ya that is a beautiful piece of machining!!

    bigger is not allways better, but all depends...
    If your looking for torque bigger is better, but if your looking for speed bigger is not better

    it was a joke. i have raced rc cars and motocross for quite a while. i am very familiar with how it all works. the bigger is better comment was referring to the typical american way. i may try to get that motor just for kicks though as it is a piece of art. will have to learn more about how it revs compared to a 28.5cc motor........

    and there is definately truth to the saying that there is no replacement for displacement. just depends on the application.

    from what ive been told by esp a 26 cc with a reed will have the same amount of torque as a std 29cc but will rev to 18,000 with load
    mental eh?

    plan on getting one, when is the question tho. when i do get it tho im going to run it first with just a ported 23 to see what kind of power it makes. if its not enough will move up to a 26. don't think i'll ever put bigger then a 26 on it. thats just too much, like strapping a model rocket engine to a hot wheels car.
