Jim, Todd, etc

I agree that it is sometimes justifiable to want to tear down and inspect a Rotax. If a driver was way ahead of the pack, faster than anyone else, and there was not an explaination, then YES, do an inspection, minimize the costs, but do the teardown. No problem here, and I think all Rotaxians would agree with me.

BUT, from the results page I see,

Zach was almost 2 seconds off of pole and took 3rd place…….
I repeat,

There is NO way you can justify tearing down his motor. I’d like to hear the justification, as I am sure other Rotaxians would too. And not one of those ‘because I can according to the rules’. Tell me WHY you would want to cost this driver ~$300 for a re-seal. Why you believed that he was not in compliance.

Rotaxians aren’t asking for a free ride here or a coupon to pass ‘go’, just some common sense on the $$ expenses.
