    What a horriable couple of days, as some of you know my best friend Taylor Lastor has lost his entire business, TRE Racing Engines in a horrific shop fire that destroyed his shop.... Our brand new engine was on the dyno when a flywheel disinigrated, and cut the main fuel lines, starting the blaze. Thank god no one was hurt, parts and pieces can be replaced, but people can't. Please keep Taylor ,his famliy and employees in your prayers as well as the loyal customers that lost engines in this horriable fire.

    We will rebound and return from this....God has a plan, not sure what it is right now, but we trust him!

    Sorry to hear that Shane, I was reading about it elsewhere last night. Glad no one was injured and I hope everything works out OK for all of you.

    So sorry for all involved Shane. You know I mean that. Tough times don't last, tough people do.

    Shane,Sorry to here your loss. I wish all the best involved. If you can tell me what ur combination is maybe we have something that can get you racing. As you know all of my stuff is centered around C/A but I am sure between what I have and Martino we might be able to come up with something (at no cost to you).
    Just a thought.

    Wow Art, what a jester! You are a true gentleman..... Our combo was a 353" SB2 for B/SM... 343" to 353" is what would work best for us. We will be looking to do something shortly. If you could call me sometime, maybe we could get something going. Hopefully insurance will do it's job. If not we will rebound somehow! On a side note, all of you engine builders with dyno's....After witnessing first hand the devastation of fire, I urge you to have a fire suppression system in your dyno rooms and shops. We emptied 5 fire extingusers and they did NOTHING ....You can not fathom losing everything you have invested in your lifetime going up in flames.....
