I have to disagree dont believe single engine source is good for sport or racers.It will price alot of the lower budget teams out of the sport instead of helping them.they now will have to pay a premium price for rebuilds which they now do themselves Baker Engines, Illmore etc.It also takes away the competitive edge for a engine manufacture to compete with its competition.Which in turn brings better product to the market.Everthing equal theres a lot of expense in props drives spacers etc so the better budget teams will always have more tools to do the job.so I vote no just my two cents its nice to see sterling vs mecury etc!!!

Great idea. Let's just see what the spring brings!

Make up with Gary Ballough.......... He's a damn good racer and a straight shooter.........like you.

After all............ Nobody's perfect..........

Sadly, a lot of people ( and an attorney or two) think they are.

Right on, TomCat. Great to hear your opinion! I'm definitely with you, tachyon, and T2x, but I don't know enough of the details to really voice my opinion (even though I really want to).

How is the cat coming? I hear the trailer was coming along. Good luck with the boat!

Thumbs up let's wait and see........

Let's give Offshore a chance to make some type of announcement before we attack them. Then I would like to hear from the owners / racers of Super Cat. What if the motors lasted 3-4 races without a rebuild with no loss of performance? Hey I may be getting closer one day to have the opportunity to run Super Cat in APBA . BH

Let's give the APBA some time here...This is not to generate any more money into the APBA's pockets, quite the contrary. This will work well. Just watch...

T2x,

I spoke with a young guy named Ryan. I guess he is a friend of Gary's. He is supposed to call me tonight. We will see if maybe some emmands can be made. Thanks for the thoughts and kind words.

Shane
