I finally decide to go with the 8001, then I find out they can't be sold in California, they don't pass clean air standards out here. I can get the 8000 so I will settle for next best.

Buy a 8001 online from ebay. They will never know the difference.

A card that came on my 8001, says a air index of (3) whatever that means. Wonder how that stacks up against the others?

They should just ban California period. They need their rules and regs stuck #@*^% They want there swimming pools, autos, electricity, but they want the polution to go some where else. I lived there so I'm not knocking the people just the stupid rules.

Did California implement tighter restrictions? Or did Redmax just tweak the 8001 a wee bit too much?

The 8000 was 'available in California'.

Banned in California!!!! I suspect that's the best testimonial RedMax could have possibly gotten for those in other states who might be considering the purchase of an 8001. I wonder how many 8001s running at the same time would it take to equal the emitted polution of one city bus. Hundreds? Thousands?

Yep - Redmax speak = anything with a 'z' - EBZ8001 - HBZ2600 - PSZ2500 - ZZ Top - is sporting the Strato-charged tech.
