Hey, not so fast...Obie Wan.

Facts and figures from the link:
Originally developed with an 1150 BMW engine adapted to run on E85 bioethanol. The engine was changed in the run up to the 2010 Expedition to a Rotax 914, which will be better suited to lower temperatures and higher altitude and is proven to deliver more horsepower

I guess the WET HEAD wasn't considered either!

Ive heard about ULM's who have a Boxer twinspark engine.
The biggest problem with the boxer is overheating when they are still on the runway.

Looks like they may have even sprung for the Ohlins suspension.
