Has anyone used a vw with or without a redrive on a CH701?
mr heintz replied when I asked about using a vw eng on that plane that he didn't recommend it. doesnt mean you cant i guess. that plane is the one i first had the hots for, but due to cost i wanted to use an inexpensive eng. thats why ive gone with the sonerai even though its the opposite of the 701. good luck. ive bee told that the subaru is a good candidate for the 701 though (by the co. that sells them) about $7000.
Am planning to install an RG TT on my 701. VW derived, with redrive. Got a lot of good reasons to do it, but haven't come across a good reason NOT to do it yet.
If you know why Chris Heintz advised against VW in the 701, I'll be interested.
Zenith gave me the name of a fellow in MO who is using a VW with a redrive. I called him and he is very happy with the result.
There's some pics of one here:
