    ok guys here we go lets get it on:msp_mad:

    this is a work saw build not stock appearing

    ..............................Heres the rules....................................

    ---------------we are building 371/372xp 50mm (72cc)---------------
    1 cylinder has to be true to the saw,no big bore kits
    2 use any piston you want to use
    3 intake and carb has to be true to the saw
    4 has to have functional choke
    5 must use oem style filter
    6 saw must be completely safe to use daily
    7 must not have pipes larger than 1" diameter (od) protruding from muffler
    8 has to have spark screen (requirement on most felling jobs)
    9 saw must run on pump gas

    - i will provide 92 octane ethanol free fuel with synthetic oil for
    saws to run on at the gtg
    -i will provide the new 24'' bar and chain for testing the saws
    -we will be cutting 18''-22'' hard wood(oak,maple,hickory,ash etc)
    depending on what i can get at the gtg time
    -we will make 5 cuts and average the time
    -i will provide a good saw man that has no horse in the race and
    will not know whos saw is whos
    -saws should be ready to run when they arrive

    my gtg will be on JUNE THE 18th so anyone that needs to get one shipped to me can get in contact with me in a pm in advance of that date
    i will video each and every saw that is run and post the videos for everyone to see from my youtube page. if ive missed anything let me know or if you have questions . rules are subject to change if i have missed something. good luck to you all and let me know whos in....
    i will start the list with me

    I'm coughing up one for Brad, but that's all I can spare. I only have one other and that's going to my brother who is cutting logs full time right now.
