    Yes. The marine market was his primary customers. The "Eagle" motor was first designed as a possible new generation of race motor. But because the big 3 were not embracing multi valve designs. Both Nascar and NHRA disqualified the design for class competition. So marine racing was the market. It turns out motor boat racing is even tougher on motors due to the vibration stresses.

        I found a parts supplier other than MF bought the parts and rebuilt the damaged portion of my front suspension. So it's resolved although maybe not in the manner you thought. And for my troubles I received this at the GoodGuys West Coast Nationals

            Lol. Yes it is. Almost cartoonish. But with all the wild builds out there you almost have to go stupid to get noticed?

            Well a few years back when I was working at a hotrod shop in Colorado Springs, a gentleman had their tubular upper control arms on his 70 GTX, went through two sets of them before but a pair of QA1s, pulling into a driveway in a parking lot the passenger side control are broke at the welds. He rolled in and parked it. Next time he was backing out of his driveway going to a cars and coffee and his driver’s side arm broke and again.. at the welds. But this time was worse... because he was backing out of his driveway the car dropped and damaged the lower front part of the fender. He came to our shop for body repair and new control arms installed. Will never use or recommend them.

              So far, I've modified stock stuff for drag racing but not so much where it breaks. How do ya figure that out? Don't go nuts with it. Been into the 9's with stock front unmodified parts....once with my car and another with a buds car and it doesn't cost big bucks. The aftermarket stuff looks cool and pretty but unless I'm building it, I'm not gonna run it.
