Engine Master Challenge engine for sale

I saw that Traco's EMC engine is up on eBay.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Traco...QQcmdZViewItem

He says he finished 7th. Strange - I finished 9th and had a score 60 points ahead of him with 60 more peak HP. Must've been another contest...

Yeah....probably a different contest. Everybody knows that all those folks on E-Bay are upright and honest. :roll:

Somebody asked him about the scoring, and it appears he used some "creative accounting" to come up with his seventh place finish.

I don't think it should really matter to the buyer. Seems like they should be more interested in power produced, fuel requirements, and durability than what place the engine took in a contest.

I wonder what good these engines are for other then dyno racing. I am sure Barry could verify but some of the modifications I have seen are for very short term use only and intended for the sole purpose of dyno racing.

Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid-in-sideways, totally worn out, shouting.."holy crap.... what a ride!"
