    Default Mono fascination ... why ?

    Came across this foto , and have wondered before ...

    Now , why would you take out 1 cylinder on a beautiful V2 ...

    Ok, i get it , to race with others having the same fetish ... or would I be the one missing something here ?

    Someone please explain this fascination with monoís

    (Iím not judgmental here, just curious )

    Rules in single race series.

    If you remove the piston and replace with this counterweight then you have something that can rev much much more than a normal single cylinder engine so producing more power before exploding.............easy way to get around the rules and win.

    Yes, think this foto is a mock up ... I have seen others finished , but that was the vertical cylinder that was taken out of action...
