A 12x8 is a mighty stiff load for a .56, a 12x6 is perfect.

That was a tempting price, which I had had it to spend.

Man I think I will wind up skipping Toledo this year. Last year I wound up spending twice my budget on engines for the B-25. I don't need any more engines or planes.. I WANT MORE, but don't need more. LOL In a few years though I will probably start building the P-61 kit I have and will be back to buying a pair of engines, that one needs 50cc or better, and I haven't found any 4 strokes that fit that size for it.

Pete, Geri was 75 yesterday and I took her to the Outback Steak House in Fredericksburg today, I had a Peach Bellini and a 12 oz rib eye with a loaded baked potato

My 62 has always worn a Graupner 12x7, seems like a good match.

I left (no pun intended) the crystal ball hanging there and no one picked it up,just as well

Dave happy birthday to geri,love steakhouses yummy.Those peach bellini drinks are nice...did you know it's a fine and cultured italian invention,comes from the same country ducati's are made in.Would you rethink your american bias and try a modern motorcycle from italy? you may have ridden them years ago but as usual today is different to how it used to be.I started out with a mas 12x6 on the 62 and ended up flying it with a 13x6 apc.

Good evening, (down there) Pete, The only Italian bike the intrigues me is the MotoGuzzi MGX21, it's a 1400 and should go at a decent pace.

My .62 turns a MA 12x6 3 blade at 10,150 and sounds so nice with the TurboHeader

Tell him if he comes back under another name he will be banned permanently.

Pretty sure he's only on moderated status, he can post and they must be approved, he behaves for a while he will be fully reinstated.

Hobbsy, that Moto Guzzi MGX21 is a fine looking bike! I haven't seen a Moto Guzzi in the flesh for decades. We had a local dealer but he went out years ago.

This is a generic answer.

We moderate with a "tie goes to the member" philosophy. If a pattern appears that is constantly on or over the line then that pattern is discussed with the member, pointing out the rules they are violating that they agreed to when they signed up.

Then if it continues posts are removed and the member is reminded again that what is going on won't be tolerated.

Then and only then, after review by the Forum Manager, RC Ken, a member is placed on moderated status, meaning they can post but each post must be approved. After a period of time, generally two weeks or repeated posting within the rules the MS is lifted.

Some folks, either by personality, culture or whatever feel that the rules don't apply to them or they need the last word. Some believe that a history of positive and valuable contributions earns them the right to break rules or makes their other posts above reproach.

The fact is, they don't have the last word, they aren't more valuable than their antics, and repeated behavior after being warned will result in MS or banning. We don't like to do it, its a hard decision to come by, but we can and will. New names? Won't work. They can't keep their mouth shut, we've done this too long and know and can easily recognize the writing style, and they can't hide their IP address. THAT will earn a ban, creating a new account to get around MS.

You might want to be the biggest, baddest, smartest kid on the playground and thats fine, but it won't be this playground

Also, moderators can't do what we/they want. All of our actions are subject to review up the line. Hobsy doens't moderate this thread because he is a regular contributor, its done by someone outside the discussion.

Hope this helps.

Are you really sure you want to discuss that first topic? Doesn't Ken have enough headaches?
