Boy,

There is a lot of possibility to cheat with a home made two-step. Especially if the builder is an electronics whiz.

Remember the mattybox

the key is using quality components and top notch fabrication....

personally I would not use any of the taiwanese junk that this person used in something as critical as my two step....

beware of this... the reason rev limiter "pills" are "potted" or "encased is ceramic" (it is actually epoxy) as this guy says, is because they are designed to work in a high heat and high vibration enviornment. Typical 1/4 watt resistors that you buy at radio shack (or mouser electorincs for that matter) will deteriate and change value quickly. That means your two-step will be unreliable.

For reliability and consitancy, stick with the "pills"

It is fun to be handy with a soldering iron and experiment, but cheaper does not always mean just as reliable.
