    I guess if wood was such a concern they’d have metal spars for all the Wacos, Fleets,
    Pitts, Bellancas, etc, etc and countless wood aircraft. I think it’s a gimmick to make
    the ignorant th...

    I heard they were having issues with cracking the top piston ring and scoring the

    manufacturing process why fix somet...

    then Arm...
