Anyway if you want proof of a 2strokes higher power to weight just look at things like chainsaws etc - or this the worlds most powerful outboard!!!

2.5hp for 1lb weight - cracking little aux motor - you could have loads of them....

It was Fred's post: "thinkin half the Weight and twice the Power had and still has a big bunch to do with it."

Would actually be more than a factor of two, but who's counting?
