I have NO choice. My radio will not do a 320 mile range. However my boat will kick his armpit if he dose not come in up the top. Off to Hong Kong tonight. Already got my new engine so just have to window shop out there.

OK Heres the frist of many pics taken down under.
The Hydro on the back of the pick up was taken at a park called Carribean park just outside Melbourne. The second is from the Adelaide club on the river Torren.

You have bee a busy boy!
Funny enough I brought a RMCK engine of Dale while I was there. I had to post it home as it caused loads of agro at customs on the flight from Adelaide to Perth. I couldn't stand the agro all the way back at each airport. I hope it gets here this week, then i can fit it in my Makara.  What do you think to the engine? 4 crank bearings water cooled crank case must all be a +. Do you know what I have to do to tweek it?

Hi mate i havent run it but they look nice seems very beefy,a guy well known on the american forums reckons as regards modding them they are a modders dream so time will tell how good they can be.From all accounts theyre top notch although some early ones did have piston issues ,might be worth checking which piston yours has i think the ones with a hole in the piston are the problem ones but rcmk will replace it free of charge for you apparently.If yours has been run by Dale it should be ok though.Cant beat 5 hp for a little more cost than  a stock zenoah.Heres a good review on it by the modder i mentioned.

Hi Martin
It dose have a good right up. I went for it for two ressons. 4 crank bearings , Water cooled crank, Oh 3 solid billet bottom end.  It just seems like a well engineered bit of kit. Dale told me there are things that can be down to tune it up, but I think I will run it in for a bit and then tweak it. A and when i do it I will see what he recomends to be done.That way I know it has been done before and it works.
Cheers for the link it was good stuff.

Yea i think they seem like theyre a good company to deal with too,the fact that they have changed pistons when issues arose free of charge shows to me good customer service etc.I will be trying one out this summer for sure,even stock they seem pretty dam good motors and as you say well engineered.Keep an eye on that forum for a modded version soon as i know Scott will be doing a review on one soon .Hes modded one allready i believe just not done testing it yet.
