    It's a simple engine to run the OSGT15. Its ignition module is smaller and lighter than that of the GT33/GT60. I'm turning an apc 14x8 on mine. I'm using the same 50:1 mix as I use on all of my...

    I will let you know.

    I'm not sure if the GG15 is popular. That goes for the GT15. The first batch of GG15's sold off and they have been waiting for the next batch.
