    Mike:


    I like the last sentence:

    ......And it'll blow those craft so far into the weeds, they'll need a GPS to find their way out.

    Pretty good article. This part of it caught my attention:

    The RXP's supercharged 4-stroke 3-cylinder Rotax SOHC with intercooler features a big-bore (100mm), short-stroke (63.4mm) design. Reduced piston travel means a longer engine life.
    There goes my plans of wanting to build a reliable 1700 cc stroker motor
