Evening guys.... i know a few of you on here are metro challenge fans. So thought this is best place to ask..

Spoke to a random guy today who said he was heavily involved with them back in the day and has an old engine that he may be selling.. we swapped numbers and am awaiting to hear from him, so thought id ask what the specs were whilst im waiting.

Thanks.

Look the regs up online, that will tell you what it "should" be.

If something is worth doing, it's worth doing half of.
