I 'm sure there will be some speed bumps along the way as one can expect w/ any newly designed & engineered product but a manufacturers ability to react & rectify the problem is more than likely how the success will be measured. Ilmor customer service has always impressed me to date & I wouldn't expect any less going forward especially w/ the investment & release of a new drive & next generation of turnkey performing engines.

Bear in mind that this was the first set of Drives to be sold to the public. Compared to some of the "Growing Pains" other manufacturers have experienced, this was by far a minor issue. The impressive part was the level of attention that the problem recieved, and the manner in which it was dealt with.

Just my .02.... If it was the first set of drives made public.. I am sure you got the attention you needed.. They didn't have any other customers calling about the same problem.... LOL... Just kidding.. That is a sweet package and it the boat looks incredible.. OL did an awesome job. I would like to see more pics of the dash too...
