either way, he'* been sccreeewwweeddd, and more than once.

glad to hear things are *finally* looking good.

hey, when you're done with all of this, we can start finding out how good that tranny is!

it should rotate smoothly. no binding at all.
and really shouldnt be any drag on it either. a crank doesnt fit in the bearings tight, there are a few thousands of an inch for oil to make up.

can you get him to pay legal fees if you win too? What about punitive damages? Have you been under emotional distress?

I've been under a lot of emotional stress. I mean I've now written (with help from you guys) 22 pages dealing specifically with this engine and its progress. I've been very excited for its completion from day 1 and now this. :( every time I think about it I get depressed....Ahhh....Ok well bent crank or not its getting replaced either way, I'm thinking with the settlement I can replace all the broken pieces and get this animal on the road once and for all. I got the chance to talk to Big Jeff of Intense Racing on the phone the other day, told him about my situation and he was understanding of my delima and offered his assistance. Since the problem was obvious I didn't need to rely on his experience. But we did talk about rebuilding it. He told me if I ship it out there they're willing to work with me on building it up. He said it'd take a little bit to get to though, might call back and find out how long a little bit is . I'm seriously considering doing the next rebuild myself but if there'* anyone I think I could trust almost as much as myself it'd be Intense Racing, heck thats basically all they do. But I'm jumping way ahead of myself here, gotta wait for the outcome before I decide.

Intense does mostly Series II stuff right? I suppose it doesnt really matter, they are fixing stuff, not developing. Maybe you can get a sponsor out of the deal?

Good luck. I would have killed both mechanics by now and burned the car down

Haha I'm sorry guys, for some reason I'm not getting email notification of postings on here....really nothing new to update though. I've talked with a lawyer a little but we're really just waiting for the mass spectral analysis. They told me up to 2 weeks but probably less. Its already been about a week I think. As soon as I find out what exactly it is in there I can start making strong demands. I'm excited for the results and I promise the day I know will be the same day you all know. Yeehaa
