Anyone with experience with the SCAT engine kits with either the cast

It looks like a pretty good deal, but I can't help wondering about why the 78.8
mm stroke. It makes me wonder if there was a problem with the forging/casting
such that it just wouldn't clean up at 79, which would have taken you ALL the
way from 2028 to 2033. The extra 0.1 mm of radius can't make any difference on
the clearance to the case.



I don't know about the extra 0.8mm either. SCAT seems to be the only crank manufacturer that does that.


Anybody know why?
