Yeah , I was all jacked up on the new yammy until I found out about the weight ..... Merc has the new Verado dialled in pretty good ..... the 300xs requires good fuel ..... If you do the math , the 300 HPDI is still has the best power to wt. ratio , unless you can run the good fuel all the time ... which I cannot .... Brian , I will be following this very closely ! Whats you expected first build date ?

I'm waiting on quotes now from several tooling companies. Early 08 for sure! We're going to offer some " BLOWOUT" deals to help pay for the tooling. I'll keep you posted.
