He built a 70mph gila e50 on the same setup we all did, im not sure it went actual 70, but Colin's did, and his and nicks were definitely high 60s.
I dunno if he truly never seized anything but it's probably because you can't seize something that doesn't run... he spent a while borrowing a series of loaners around then, so was the brunt of a lotta shit don't run jokes anyway...
That said, he managed to build a hero kit e50 motor with 2 backup engines for pinball, not even test any of them until 2 weeks before start, and realized he had ported them all identically, and made the same mistake to where the intake was open at bdc and just blew everything back out the intake. All 3 motors, totalled, without ever being run and a week to go.
He just last minute slapped on his old gila, which was years old at this point and definitely not still going 70, blowing sparks as the soaked crusty 5year old baffle packing burned out, and said fuckit, cross your fingers
He broke down a lot, but with the team dnf help from buzzards and Co, he eventually did finish.
And for all the shit we love to give each other,, I'm damn proud of him for it
