You need to take me for a ride now....I really need to know how many RPMs I weigh. Can't wait for Dr's appointments in the future and I answer the question, "do you know your weight?", and I will eagerly answer in RPMs.

AWESOME :shades:

Great!

That is almost exactly what Carol gets out of her DR/early 50's 25hp. The 30 hp is the same cubic inch as the 25 hp.
