Make sure the compressor mounting is tight on a regular basis! Otherwise good motors - if you're going to race it you can bypass the oil level sensor on the oil tank in the cowling to stop it going into guardian mode when the oil froths up from getting shaken about.
A pretty genuine 200hp or a little more as well - if you're not racing it leave it as standard and enjoy!
