Thanks Nick. I love the way the Japanese have no engine snobbery and all use mats to catch the oil. clapping at the start of a friends engine, real enthusiasts all together. I do have a keen liking for these far eastern engines and hope more will be imported to these shores before too long

Not only are wheels a rarity, they transport fair sized engine (s) on those micro Suzuki trucks

I think they don't use wheels as they are on a sealed surface, would you fancy hammering pegs into tarmac to stop the engine wandering off?
