    Can you weigh both motors and let us know?

    Just got my hands on an IT250 motor, 6 speed and air cooled, might work for this kind of build

    funny, i've got an IT250 that's way modified... keep trying to get the chassis where i want it without luck.
    the motor is great; wide powerband, comes on the pipe hard but without a sudden hit, more linear. simple and reliable. the chassis on the other hand sucks. i've been thinking of using the motor in a more modern chassis/suspension.
