Definitely from the Pacific Northwest US. Now in AZ and playing in the sunshine.
The Blaster has now gone through three tanks of gas since I put the new top end on and it runs really well.
Learning where the powerband begins has been a whole new experience for me as I'm unfamiliar with 2 stroke engines. Once it gets there, I'm having to get used to hanging on for dear life as it stands up and runs.
Now that it is working as expected, it's time to do the detail work like getting all the body bolts/screws in place and tidying it up.
