Pretty small, you'll need to run one off each cylinder.

Weed eater/gas rc car use 2 strokes. FI on a two stroke makes less power since it just blows the mixture right out of the exhaust port.

I want one. Donít know what I would ever use it for. Oh I know it would make a terrific centerpiece for the dinning room.

speaking of cigarettes, California now requires cigarette companies to have self extinguishing cigarettes. Apparantly the chemical they use to make it do this isnt good for you so my malboro medium days are over and im switching to top rollies for my 2 - 3 times a day fix.
