You mean “maxter” right?  Darned spell check.

Because I race at Italian Motors corporate track (SIMA), several of us have been beta testers.  As a piece of hardware it may be the best thing out there, and the reliability in testing has been outstanding (it’s a detuned and de-stressed KF4 motor).  Very strong: We’ll be racing it regionally this year and we’re starting out with a 25 pound weight penalty versus the Leopard and 10 versus the X-30 and Rotax EVO.  Personally, I don’t think these weights will stick, but it shows how much power the motor has.

The real question is how much market traction it will get since the big-time national series (read Rotax and SKUSA) will never allow it.
