This is great and very useful. I've been scratching my head on this topic to the point that I haven't got much of a skull left. If I may ask though, do you think that the 97K needs to be tuned to reach the same level of performance as the TX200? I have read many a quote saying that it should be to reach these levels. I know that there is almost nothing in it, but accuracy is my top top priority :boogie: I want to be sure that It can match the accuracy of the TX200 out of the box or if I need to pay extra to get it to this point :hmm:

You'll need to tune a 97 to get the best out of it mate, a stage 1 tune'll cost up to 70, and a stage 2 around 150 so factor that into your budget.

Cheers, wurz

Would these tunes remain under the 12 foot pound limit? :signthankspin:

Top review. I've got the Hw97kt, but it's away for tuning, but I'm saving hard to get the pro sport because it looks and handles soooo nice..

Great analysis, cheers milegajo.

 

Why are your "circumstances.. rather peculiar and as such, I have unique demands and considerations regarding my equipment."?! I only ask as I'm curious as to how that may have swayed your ratings.

yes tryed both and went for the 97 just cause it felt better but does need tuning as has hell of a twang but other than that there wasn't much in it
