I don't know if Jack does, but I have my ears on.....I agree, 
Tom.....anyone want to get the record back and put it up a bunch? I 
have some ideas and would provide our "Rose" as the initial test

I bet that a power train could be designed and built this winter for 
the record next season. The engine exists.....
