Re: Rotax Mini MAX Squish Change
As you may know, we at the MAXSpeed Group are always trying to listen to our customers and some have been unhappy with the current Rotax Mini MAX regulation in regards to the minimum squish gap. In trying to make this class as level playing field as possible, we have come to the conclusion with the help of our customers that the performance of the package has declined.
