It was the way I was holding the gun, I am not one to spend much time at chrono I think it was about +/- 5

Id think they would fit, but would PE sell it -- thats the bigger question. I would still love to see a GEO1 body with the board and internals of the GEO2


Mike -- any reason for the prop shaft front part to be a 2 piece unit? Just trying to figure out why those 2 parts are threaded together

Did you know notice any consistency issues? How is it over the Chrono? Especially after you shot a couple of balls.

I'd say ease of fabrication. Those parts also consist of different material.

I am not sure why it's two pieces, the front part is made of delrin or some composite plastic it's on hand tight when connecting it to the other shaft

It would be nice if they did for those who wanted to upgrade their current Geos but I wouldn't necessarily say they NEED too

haha, PE won't even release some lousy bolt inserts for the Cure 3+ non-SLS users. What makes you think they're gonna sell you the entire bolt assembly separately.

Lets hope for the best.
If the new propshaft is found to make a significant difference I may get another Geo and buy the Geo 2 propshaft and the GST kit. I wonder what the efficiency will be off a 68/4500? Hope PE releases some numbers on that.

Why does everyone expect them to release this engine?

definitely not happening until the geo2 has been out for a while. probably atleast until november/december if then. it may not be until the geo3. then people will want that engine and not the geo2's.

either way you can't buy the SLS cure 3+ with bolt inserts separate from the sls...I highly doubt you will be able to buy the entire geo2 bolt assembly separately unless you got connections or PE decides to change its business objectives.

I don't expect them to, but if they are interchangeable that generally hints at them releasing it at one point for all Geos. They could not do that at all, but some people with their Geo 2s will probably sell the bolt/proshaft for some retarded price and people will buy them.
