You've sparked my curiosity, what video did you find on the 60hp 670? Was going to say sounds like a mower racer, but every sanctioning body for lawn mower racing does not allow for CVTs.

Would be nice if more small engines had an oil pump, rather than splash type. Bet you could do more with it and have it be more reliable.
