Maybe everyone should call Rod at Racecrafters.

563-590-7223

He states that there were three (3) engines there and none of them had a mechanical problem and they never used the spare engine that was in the truck as the contract stated.

There is two sides to the story but Tsciggfrie says the boat didn't perform due to the boat not the engines.

Time to substantiate facts not rumors.

Just when I think JCPERF found the perfect avatar he steps up to the plate and once again surpasses the previous one

Keep up the good work

Bob Russel's boat was the one they used, which has been around since the early part of last summer. I guess we will all have to wait and see what happens!
