add-ons

I don't think it would matter either way. I would think however that boxer engines may be more efficient by design. One thing is for certain- with the lower center of gravity you get a LITTLE BIT better handling and less roll-over risk.

Anyone know the rod length? The rod ratio, or the length of the rod divided by the stroke, greatly effects cylinder wall sideloading, and thus wear. Longer rod ratios are usually considered better. They also have effects on the VE of the motor, as different rod ratios have slightly different pistons positions at some crank angles (anything but TDC and BDC really).
