If you had to choose a club engine for a local tag series which would you go with?
Im not racing any rotax sanctioned events so i dont care if the rotax is legal(updated parts) or sealed etc.
Track is a parking lot with barriers and is very tight with short straights, competition is very lax, i was lapping people in shifters in a prd fireball to give you an idea.
Leopard- you can tune the carb with needles, revs higher, battery recharges, short lifespan, starter sucks, high rpm, would probably gear it to 16,000 rpm nothing higher.
Rotax- Easier jetting (jet station), longer rebuild time, better starter, no battery recharge, have to roll on throttle
My prd’s starter sucks and i know its down on power which is my reasoning for the change. I like the rotaxes jetting as i have heard you can leave the jet alone for the most part and as long as the battery is charged and the power valve closes with the exhaust matting being in good shape you should be good to go. I also heard they have better power coming out of a corner.
What would you get?
