Default Did Triple X blow a motor???

I heard Triple X blew a motor Friday on a trial run. Word is that Reggie is letting them use his shop but they won't make the kilos. Is this right?

If one were to seriously go for a world title would one do it with engines that were 90% worn to the point of a rebuild?

I am just asking. I am thinking *NOT*

Triple X was not going to run in NC, it was Bob's new epoxy 47 that was going to run with the 2000hp Racecrafter motors. Bob is probably half way back to Racecrafters shop to give them back their paperweights!!!

Why would you stray from Sterlings? That is just borderline stupid when your rep is on the line....
