Drove Teebones 800 Rotax!

Just wanted to say thanks to Ted for letting me drive his Rotax today and letting CHUBBS hang out in the rhino,he had a problem with his exhaust so I turned him on to my guy that did my exhaust, turbo & intake the MAGNUM BOYS need to shit can whoever is building the exhaust for them,the guy has NO FUCKING IDEA WHAT HE IS DOING,Ted's engine cover melted,seat burned and the valve cover has a hole where the exhaust rested against it and now is leaking oil ''nice'' The guys at MAGNUM are more than capable to build the exhaust them self, keep it all in house guy's.Not talking shit about MAGNUM I just don't want see them getting a bad rap for someone that doesn't know what he's doing.

crusin the Rotax

I have to say first off the guys at Magnum did not charge me for the exhaust and they are sending me a new engine cover.
The exhaust guy gave the guys a double wammy not only did he make the headers wrong, he kept the car for almost a week forcing them to work overtime to finish the build on time. Like I mentioned in my thread all four of them worked from 6 am til 830 pm. I think they will be building their own headers from now on.
When I was at the dunes last weekend I was so happy with the way this car dunes now I didn't notice the seat smokin next to me. I didn't notice the valve cover until after I got home and removed the engine cover I had to go a different route, the header just weren't going to work. Bens friend Frank was able to get it in this week. I do like the wrap around the driverside better they can be low and a way from the seats and cover plenty of room on that side...... I should be back out on the sand by the end of the month Got to say love the Rotax.
It was cool hanging out with Chubbs yesterday he is cooler than the other side of the pillow..

Very cool. I just put my bed and cage on tonight, I still have a few more little things to finish up can't wait to dive it when it's complete. I dove mine the other night with out the cage and it felt great, whole new machine just did not want to go too fast with out the cage. I hooked up my tail and brake lights today an noticed the tail light turn on with the key is this how it suppose to be? I looked on the wiring print and it looks like that's how it's wired. Brake lights work fine.
