How long before an OSO'r vouches for the guy, encouraging others to buy.......

I know a guy that bought two of those motors and they are bumped up to 550 HP, come with warranty and new exhaust still in the crate/wrapper. He has 600 hours on them so far in salt water, run wide open all the time, even races with those motors, not one problem..........

Seller even threw in a gold Rolex and can get you a deal on new Myco trailers for 5K each.......

Just takes one I guess, but it's not going to be me. If a few OSO's can vouch for someone like this I would take the chance, but I'm not going to be the ginny on the first try.

Just the fact that it isn't even advertised properly is enough to cause suspicion.

Nah, Mr Greedy will only think that it is so cheap since the guy doesn't have any idea how much those motors are really worth, Mr Greedy is going to get a "steal of a deal".

and all payment methods listed are those in which mail fraud cannot be claimed.....take 70 $50 bills and throw them off the roof of the tallest building around you.......it'll be more fun watching people fight for it then waiting for this motor to show up (and you'll end up with the same thing in the end...NOTHING)
