We have a 0-55cc gas/muffler class. Whats the saw of choice? 254? Partner 55? Something else?

Just throwing ideas.

Partner 550 was a most impressive runner stock big time  :o with the longer stroke it has.

Poulan 325  / Partner 5500  53cc     basically 5000 plus with 46mm bore

254 is an easy find around here. Partners are less so.

Only one of those I have even seen or even test cut with went up your way.

254 easily beats a 55. 026 is hard to beat for sure. The 026TW was.

Is this stock racing, woods ported saws, race ported anything goes gas saws?

Just thought if porting you might look at the poulan 330 3450 54cc with the  bigger HDA carbs stock, open transfers and plenty of room to work under covers.

Anything goes. Going to build it myself so won't be too elaborate. Shooting for 4.2-4.6 sec 3 cut range. My old 026 would drop in the high 3 sec range.
