I thought the bryants were bullet proof.
Good news (well kinda) the crank is still in one piece, but I sheered all the flywheel bolts
Don't know the cause yet, but workin on it.

Might be makin the Chicago Poker run after all!!!!! Maybe I can stay out of the throttles this time

Thats great news.
Funny that I saw this. I was just on the phone with Lance Messinger and we were talking about your bad luck and how that isn't suppose to happen.
Any chance of you bringing it down to the shootout in Aug.

I was kind of planning on it. I hate to think of floating in line for 2 to 4 hours. Reminds me of breaking a tranny in Catalina and idling back for 5 hours (in my old Cig). I thought we'd head down there for the party and Krooze around, and maybe run....is Lance going? I know he won his class last year, but this year....different story, huh?

I've got a lot of acceleration out of my boat, but there will be some serious competition this year...Leon, Burns, etc.....I don't know how the classes break down??

Lance said he would be there. We will have a large group with us. You are more than welcome to hang with us if you want. Also the fun on Friday is a great min-poker run, about 30 miles each way.

Alot of the places are sold out, I know ours is. There are some real nice condos close by that are a much better deal and better local. I will have to get the # for you tomorrow. You will have a great time, guaranteed.

Thanks!!!
Lance is a great guy! He gave me a ride Saturday afternoon to the last few card stops. We had a talk about that. I fully trust Jack, he's been great to me and takin care of everything. He is one smart MoFo, and I'm sure it's just been bad luck so far. I don't know too many people who have had good luck with PSI blowers cranking out serious power and living without some problems. I've been trying to crank out all she'll give me. Jack is trying some new things on my motors, I need to give it a chance. Maybe if I can learn to relax on the throttles, we'd have some better luck. There is nothing like riding a rocket though!!!!!!

Don't worry, I make sure everyone in my boat is comfortable before myself. I haven't pushed any top speeds, just acceleration.
