from the thread on cub acrobatics I quote Denton:

My Cub (N2182M) is a 1946 J-3 65, with an STC'ed C-90 on it. I love it, the C-90 is the best engine by far for the Cub, I have flown several 65 Cub's, and they are fine, with full fuel, and a passenger, at fairly low altitudes, but not for mountains.

I am flying in a cub with a C-90 also, but always with the instructor as I have not soled yet. I am told to expect a suprise in preformance when I do fly solo. Is solo flight that much different?

I have been looking for a cub with a 90 but realisticly how well would a 65 work with a pax? and according to Denton in the above quote mountain flying would not be appropiate for a 65. Would that be true when solo or just with a pax?

Did they ever make a 65 with a starter? (bad shoulder)
