Default The new 55AX is here ... now

Looks like the latest 55's have a different carb and muffler indeed. (40K instead of 40J , and E3071 instead of E3070) Has anyone noticed a performance change? A new thread here to see who had the latest version.

res://ieframe.dll/dnserror.htm#https://login.secure.co1.msn.com/wls...TDF&OCID=HPDHP

So why hasn't OS made a big deal out of this, call it the 55AX II, and raised the price?

Thanks!

I bought one a while back and will be shipping it to fellow Bro, McDDD for a comparison to the old version. Mostly be a carb test. Stock mufflers are replaced with a Macs header and Coke can (Coke can pipe/CCP) for usage on forty sized slabs.

I don't seen them on the Tower site. Is someone swapping the carbs and mufflers and reselling them?
