Found this to be entertaining.

Haven’t watched yet but I bet @Alan_Dove will wanna see this. There was so much controversy around EVO.


I was just disappointed Rotax din’t bring something new to the market. But they probably were never going to get the investment to do so. Even their electric thing seems to have gone off the boil and that’s not in-house tech I believe,

The EVO was always going to deliver a little better power otherwise they’d never have sold any,


I remember I created a graph that overlayed the two power curves. I was contacted and asked the question “where did you get those”. I got them from rotaxes own graphs.

I haven’t watched the video still. But did they do any kind of a test with throttle response at differing RPM. Of course the throttle application would need to be consistent between runs, but that’s also one of the advantages of EVO.

:wink: Well go do that first, then you’ll know.

I really wanted to, but then I found the episode of “The Littlest Hobo” about karts with Paul Tracy in it and just got sucked into the retro goodness :smiley:

Epic thread. So many hours of links.
