The only problem I see..is the marketing of the drive issue..and hopefully that will be resolved in the next few months. No bravo drive will ever compete against a NXT or something with a tranny..

Not to throw stones, but I recall seeing that 32' Skater for sale in TX a few years ago with a blown engine (Ilmor) and it did not have no where near 800 hrs on it. Wasn't it for sale from Bud Bloom?

Telling the truth good or bad isnt throwing stones-

At the the same time a bit more info than a "recollection from several years ago" would go a long way.

Id love to hear his story- send him a PM if you can and lets hear what his side of the deal is.

Id really love to hear what may have happened because I would have mailed him personally before I bought if I'd seen a story like that.

Anybody got a link to a thread he wrote about his experience- I don't know anybody with a blown engine that doesn't yak about it.

Doesn't sound right to me. I think it's BS.

My personal claim was 3-400 hours-

I also said I "wasnt going to go that far out", but these units last a Looong time as long or longer than their v8 counterparts of similar output.

That data came from the same inquiry posted on SOS- here's his quote verbatim.

I believe the current ILMOR record is a 32 Skater with twin ILMORS & 800+ hours and ZERO FAILURES. Thats pretty impressive!

Anyody know Dave P and if he is or isnt a story teller?

Let see if we can contact said skater owner and get him to verify this claim- Id like to know.

Not as much as the Liberal B.S. that spews from your mouth

I think you should call Ilmor and dispute the claim

Nope - not a story teller. Call Bob Mason @ Ilmor for details

Seems to me Dave P stands behind his claim.

DaveP is Dave Patnaude, longtime Charter member. We've had our differences with politics but he's not into exaggerations and mendacity.
