Default It is what it is ... XXXXXXX

Snapped a crank at 8K while out playing around with the boat, So after a full winter of trash talking I'm out for 3 races.

I'll be up and running Tuesday or Wednesday and good to go for the Michigan rounds.

He will replace the crank, no probelm..

But I'm stuck replacing the Flywheel, Stator,Top Cap, Piston, Rod, Block half; but in all fairness I think I can weld and fix the block half so that shoudl save me a couple grand.

Thanks Smitty, but I bought one from a racer in IL and I have another coming from California that’s replacing the broken one under warranty so I'm good there, The Block is the major obstacle keeping me from racing this weekend now.
