    Default Mpd / comp jet???

    Somebody needs to tap the resources of Mr. Mclure for C/J. It would be really cool to see a boat come out of that shop. I would be willing to help in any way I could to see that happen. Jack has been a tremendous help to me in the past and I want to see him at the TRACK!!!

    Anybody have any circle racing pics of him in action?

    It would be cool to see all the pictures he has. A few times while I was at MPD jack pulled out his photo album to show me some pics of different racing boats from back in the day! He's got some old school pics!

    He came out to a long beach race and stopped by my pit. Im gonna assume if he does any work on a circle boat, I'm sure he would come out and support. Just a thought though.
    Love aint nothing but a four letter word, just like f*ck and sh!t .

    I totally agree, I'm just surprised that nobody has had him rig a boat specifically for this class. If i Was n't so busy Kickin Rankin's azz in my class , I would kick some jet azz, hahahhaha!!!! Right now there seems to be a monopoly on the class from one certain camp......

    I saw him as well as he came over to peek at my boat. I wanted to chat with him about some handling issues I was having but I was in the middle of running my valves. When I was done, I went to go find him and he wasnt to be seen again the whole weekend.

    I have heard whispers of his shop and/or names of some other people who frequent his shop putting together a boat for quite some time now, but have yet to see or hear anything since.

    If I had to guess, my guess would be Jack winding down and not taking on new ventures.

    But my guess could be wrong.

    What a great guy and a wealth of knowledge. I attribute our boat's good performance to Jack
