Default Rossi 60 with tuned pipe is this too much ?

Hi Guys,

Have a dilema, i have a Rossi 60 with full tuned pipe laying around and a new in the box Hanger 9 Twist ;-0

Just wondering if its worth risking the 2 together............. just not sure if the engine would rip the airframe apart

I own a Pizazz, it's predecessor, and my opinion is that is not a good combination. It is certainly a combination worthy of grunts and smiles during a bench racing session, but I tend to think that in the air the effect would be like tying a quarterhorse to a plow. I think the Twist and the like are airframes that will thrill you more by and are better suited to overpowering with 4-stroke power. Based on the performance of the Pizazz on a Saito .72, as a more everyday combination I would say the Saito .82 is a great choice. Using that at a baseline for comparison, I would look at power and weight of other choices. Are there .90/.91's that are similar, or is that the universal jump to a larger and heavier "block"?
