Warbird Racing rules and are not limited to . 95
displacements for a two-stroke engine, there is one gas engine
that might be fun to try in the Spitfire 40. The Evolution
20GX 20cc ( 1. 20 cu. in.) gas engine with a pumped

Tony Pacini was a pioneer in electric power and he has been
at the top of the leaderboard multiple times.
