I'm trying to figure out if this pull-start engine is worth $140.00 I'm looking for good torque, high speed, at a good low price.

I have 2 of these 1 I have run till it lost compression.
Both are non pullstart. I think they are great, best for the money

I have one in my Hyper-7 and it runs great
plenty of power unless you're a pro racer and want to spend $300+ and go crazy fast.

you can find them on eBay for less than $140 sometimes

That is the displacement or capacity of the bore of the cylinder in the engine when the piston is all the way at the bottom on its power stroke. So an engine that is .21 is .21 cubic inches or 3.5 cubic centimeters of combustion chamber capacity.

Hummm ... eheheh OK

Here in Portugal we talk about cubic centimeters, in Portugal our metric system don't use the inch, so now i understand what you guys are talking about

Thanks for the explanation.
