Quin gets a win in AX Hydro

Postby LarryR » Thu Aug 08, 2019 7:05 pm

Quin started his AX career with a second and a third at Standish Maine in May, while winning J Hydro on Saturday and Sunday.
He got a win in AX Runabout at Thompson, CT only to loose it for being 3-lbs underweight. :???:
He got his first AX Hydro Win last Saturday at Pleasant Ridge, Maine.

-they get a good show of Mercs in MaIne, mostly in J/AX, and 25XS . Poppers would run as A-mod, and the SSOA does not schedule them or  DSH.

Bottom picture above is thee last Mercury 25XS sold by Mercury Performance Products (in 1996).

I was second owner and sold it to Dave Young around 2011/2012.  It says "Brockmeyer" in Sharpie pen on the flywheel.

-so, how many 'revs' would there be in a 'Brockmeyer Signature Flywheel' ?
Larry downs says;  "there's 100 revs in every box of L62Rs"

They wrote it... Not me!  Dave Sr said it's so they can keep track of where their engines come from.  In Jesup, GA they ran "The Brockmeyer motor".

LarryR runs a VERY tight ship in the pits!  I have witnessed it first hand and all his equipment and record keeping is top notch!
