Well, I just picked up a brand new Norvel AME 25 Revlite for my lanier Shrike 10. Will this be pretty hot? I hear nothing but good things on the little Norvel 25.

Anyone else running this combo or similar? Did you have to lengthen the nose a bit?

Hey Jim, it will be a very good combination.
On my shrike I'm using an O.S. 25 Sx & Macs pipe and I'm very pleased.
With an APC 7x8 turns 18100 on the ground and an estimated speed of 140 to 150. I think you will do much better with a norvel 25
Yes I did extend the nose about 1/2 inc./ so i installed the battery way back in the tail.
