probably the fact that if ed bridges puts his name on something it has to be top shelf or he wont even bother ...and coversely probably trinity wanted to cut corners somewhere ...but just pure speculation ...at least some people got some pretty dicey motors ....i quess i can take the extech out of the loop for next year ....the only reason i was looking at it was because of the eb stamp

it looks like it's going to be a very sensitive topic for some time.....on the other hand, I agree the only reason I went for Extech was the EB Mod stamp on it, and I will follow it !!!!!!!

I have run a lot of .21 motors in the past year, GRP Tuned, OS V-spec, Go and RB. The EBmods ExTech is simply the best motor I have run to date. V-Spec second. EBmodded V-specs have always been highly prized in the racing community, hopefully he will go back to OS.

Ed bridges knows his stuff, he was actually my in here at trinity. Things happened over a a race report and a "Sponsored Driver",The the matter got out of hand, and it led to one thing after another. Unfortunately i was never able to talk with him off the record since this happened, as we all know things travel through the web, and i wish i could of expressed my personal feelings. Being i had something to do with it.

Unfortunately Driver Chad Phillips got thrown under the bus with this one, when he had absolutely nothing to do with it, and Ernie was actually un-aware of the situation till the day it started. So in this case, no The Owner Ernie had very little to do with it, and our engines are of excellent quality and will continue to be if not better.
