55 is technically "in the 50's"

also, my usual metric is asking "is there a better category or place for this"

and RD60 is WAYYY more inline with an MB5 than like, an LS2. functionally anyway. It suffers the challenges and limitations of a shifty 50 and really only has the difference of registration depending on the state and your level of honesty.

We just made 50cc decals for them. then "legally" it's a 50 shifty! yay!

Yeah they fit. You can also get later model dt50mx or air cooled RD factory CDI and plug them into a Top racing box for factory reliability and still the benefit of an ignition curve.

I would make sure you cross numbers over from HPI’s site and confirming the exact one treats has. Like that review said there’s 2 different dt50’s that accept different ignitions for euro and us.
