Simjet 700 experiences

Does anybody have a running simjet 700 or owned one in the past?
I would like to know experiences with these engines because I have nothing but problems with mine.

Regards Johan

So I gues I am the only one who has one of these no good engines.
I already spent about a 1000 on this thing, but it just does not seem to want to run.

I gues I am going to give it up with this one. To bad this screws up my nice speed project.

Simjet 700

I have 2 Simjets, of which one is a 700. Mine runs fine. But I have only bench run it one time. There were some problems with the settings in the software in the earlier versions. That may be your problem.
