    I just saw that Edge Performance is making their own modules, too.

    Both of my IVs are/were straight VS.
    The elevator has some differential to it, though.

    My early model (1997) 912UL with the low compression Big Bore now has almost 600 hours of trouble free fun time on it.

    Poly tone is like lacquer.  It will melt into itself.  Just mist another coat over the damaged area.  Done.

    Still waiting to see that elusive 2-stroke Detroit that does not have a blower.
    BTW, this is the smallest Detroit 2-stroke, a 1-53 engine.  Note the blower on the side.

    If you're interested in the road trip there's a couple of us up north...  Mine's a model 4, but I have a good friend with a Mark 4 Avid that will give you a ride, too.

    With the pitch setting I have now, I see 5500 to 5600 on full power takeoff roll.  The Prince I was getting 5200.  
    Cruise at 5000 rpm I see 100 mph now and ~90 before.
     
    I played with higher pitch settings and saw 125 mph at 5500 rpm...

    So far, so good.  Performance is good.  The Prince pulled harder out of the hole, but the Luga/NR is faster on the top end.  I went from 200' takeoff to 250'.  I can live with that.
    After the world of bullcrap is over, I'd like to try a pair of 79" blades in it to see how they perform.
