    Hate to say it but if it's been a whole year that this guy has taken your money and not sent the parts, you've probably been ripped off.

    That's been my experience too. My little solid tire maule tw worked just fine but it sure had a rough ride. The 3200 is much nicer in that respect. My brother has the 8" pneumatic tire maule...

    Simple. Because the atomization of the fuel in the venturi cools the carburetor throat and induces icing in carburetors. A drop in air pressure does certainly have a cooling effect but not nearly as...

    Fair point. Just seems like the consensus is that 4 cylinder Continentals make more carb ice than 4 cylinder Lycomings. Perhaps this is not the case?

    Just a small point of correction. Lycomings still have the carburator before the sump so the air passing through the carburator isn't heated beforehand. I think the tendency for Lycomings not to make...

    When you increase the total number of dollars in circulation by almost 40% in the span of 18 months it tends to put a lot more cash in consumer's pockets and they are bound to spend it on toys.

    I'm with stewart, a 172 or 182 fits the bill. Heck, for perhaps even less money a Cherokee fits the bill and you wouldn't get made fun of for flying a spam can.

    The 76AK-2-XX prop really is the ticket though. It can turn an okay performing plane into a great one. I'm saving pennies and searching for one currently. It was a night and day difference on that...

    This model of wheel/brake is for 1.25" axles but they're missing the bearings, races, and grease seals. Should be a good deal for someone who's handy with rebuilding wheels and brakes.

    Can't argue with you on the prop front. Short of field approving one, the C85 is the easiest way to get the 76AK-2 on there and yes, the prop makes up a large amount of the difference. My brother has...

    I would disagree with that fairly strongly. The C90 makes MUCH more torque than the C85 in addition to more horspeower. JimC has the torque and HP graphs and the C85 doesn't look great on those in...

    Seems like mainly hard surface. The slick tread baby bushwheel wants to skate around from what I've heard. Of course in snow I'd imagine the ski itself does okay at steering.

    It's a good point but at least the Wag bracket looks pretty minimalist. The Atlee one is a massive bracket for such a simple installation.
