    Not impressed with the WhirlWind. I see no improvement over the Warp Drive.

    I'm running a 2 blade tapered tip warpdrive. I have a 75" Whirlwind I will install after the landing gear upgrade. Can't wait to see if it's as smooth as everyone says it is. I got my WW used so I won't be bias cause it cost twice as much as my other prop.

    Slipper clutch is the best upgrade i have done! It really help with startup and shutdown operations. I can defiantly lower my idle stop screws now.

    Well the slipper clutch install is going as expected, I need to order some different sizes of shims. Now i wait on CPS. Also doing a ratio swap. Hope this quiets the prop some.

    Are your tires 31''?

    Wow, it sounds like your Rotax has been nothing but problems. It stinks that you have had so much trouble with yours. Mine runs great, I'm just tinkering. Even if I didn't do one thing to it i would still be happy with the way it operates. BTW what year was your engine produced? Some of the early ones had ignition wiring issues. Did you complete the 5 year rubber replacement? Mine was over due and my carb sockets still looked new.

    Crossover doesn't seem to make much of a difference. The Ballence Master helped more. I have a slipper clutch on the way. By no means do I feel like my engine runs ruff. I just think it could be as  smooth with the ULS cylinders as it was with the 80hp

    I planned to tap the manifold so i could adjust the direction of the fitting, but there was not much material left after machining the hole. I opted to weld and prey its where i need it. hope to try it out this weekend.

    It helps some. I would not call it the Holy Grail of balance but i believe i could notice a difference. Next is the crossover 1'' mod and a slipper clutch for the gear box.

    Still waiting on my new gear from AvWeld. Found a landing spot today and gave it a go.
