Advanced Bi-Metallic Liner. This process uses a double layer of
plating material rather than one thick layer. This helps the metal
to bond to the cylinder and is more durable. Also, the plating
process is more consistent, resulting in a more precise fit between
piston and sleeve for better compression, longer life.
Side exhaust
E-3071 Power Box muffler with squared-off shape enables it to fit

Fuel containing 5%-20% nitromethane with at least 16% lubricant
Most of the fuels we carry meet or exceed the lubricant content
required for optimum performance and maximum engine life. In the
past, the conventional lubricant content used in fuel was 18%. But
with new advanced technologies, fuels like Red Alert and O'Donnell
for example, have a better quality of lubricants even though the
percentages of lubricant content are lower. These high-tech
lubricants provide exceptional cooling and protection.
