    you are talking to the wrong person there must be. very good engine company that sponsors some good races. They have a lot of good motors out there, talk to Todd Ewing.

    huntsville engine sucks

    then something is very different now at Huntsville engine. as the economy gets worse, the more the truth of a company comes out.
    as far as todd ewing, he offered the most preposterous excuses as to why a young engine would blow up. then he was always unavailable for my calls, not unlike an ostrich.
    i have had great success with other engine companies since leaving huntsville engine forever.

    Please Explain what happened to the motor to cause it to break ?

    Todd is a good guy and I am sure they arent ducking calls. I've been down this road with a new motor, they are race motors if they break they break. Schmidt is the only motor shop I know that offers a warranty. There is way to many what if's for a motor shop to redo a motor that broke, unless it broke on the dyno.

    Hammertime SAID: "Todd is a good guy and I am sure they arent ducking calls"

    in your attempt to defend huntsville engine you have not considered the possibility that when i called huntsville engine each and every time using my name and asking for todd, they put me on hold and came back to the phone claiming he was not available so i immediately called back and used a different name and only then did todd pick up the phone.
    avoiding a customer phone calls is not the sign of a good guy and a reputable engine shop.

    Maybe they are then ..

    I'll ask again what broke on the motor and how many passes are on it ?

    I'll also add again motors do NOT come with a warranty just how it is.

    And avoiding to answer questions or provide details about your situation sure is not helping your cause at all, either.


    SP... Fact or Fiction??? No Facts so far.
