« on: April 23, 2015, 08:14:08 PM »
Hey guys, I found this on DDM, has anyone tried it dontknow  Would it be worth using at all..........or if it's not a Reed engine, it's not worth it so to speak?

I'm thinking about getting one to try in my shorty Baja.......what do you guys think?

Hey Grim They do work well if the engine is ported to suit.  If you bolt it on with no mods the engine gets a little hotter with no real performance change. thumbsup

As usual the hate for Chinese and no knowledge. Done right very easy and cheap power gain. For example you can get 30.5cc ported REV long block for about US$70. Add Zenoah CA217 bearing US$5 and do the piston porting. Add wt1048 and you have cheap good power that will make you smile. You are not allowed to view links. Register or Login

By the way if you can get SCZ 29cc it is one the best you can get. Same as BZM but improved cooling and stronger crankcase and more power. I have 3 of them running on Tillotson carbs that you can buy from MMR at UK. Just shows you the brilliance of this page if you search reviews and advice. Most info go the other way.

Actually the Area RC is made in Taiwan. So coming from the same factory I say the DGI also is from Taiwan.

Some knowledge is needed when installing. Great piece of kit that gives excellent value for money power.

Actually a very good piece of kit if you know what to do. Easy gain and very simple and cheap power for those that have little knowledge and skill to do some piston porting. Of course reed won't work on stock piston. You have to lengthen the timing and that is very simple to do.
