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

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... :)
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.
