    Maybe they should have contacted John Slack, experienced and well known Bearcat mover to take it to Texas. I give the current movers less than a 50/50 chance to arrive in Texas unscathed. But, I'm hoping for the best.

    Now THAT is funny! I don't think Lyle's truck is around anymore. Besides, using the Slack method of traveling the back roads in the middle of the night, the package would arrive in Texas sometime in July.

    Your right Jarrod, it's because of the boil-off, but not for the reason you thought, as ChrisMX105
    explained.

    It's because now there's no one around who knows how it operates or how to service it.

    The team had two full time mechanics, but they were both fired. At the same time, they were asked to put together detailed servicing instructions, for whoever takes over the Bear.

    They picked up their tools and left the hanger, and it didn't happen.

    The rest of us on the crew who know how the system operates and how to service it were not asked.

    You can guess why.

    Wasn't the whole point of the program to make an aircraft that was "User-Friendly and Self-Explanatory"? After all Air Racing is "Simple, Cheap and Easy"

    Oh wait, we wanted to win

    "they were both fired. At the same time, they were asked to put together detailed servicing instructions".

    Sounds like management failed to do a "logic" flowchart before that move!

    I think the "Logic Flowchart" should have been done by the people that worked for Mr. Lewis. I am sure that in the business that Mr. Lewis is in, he faces unpredictable financial loss, maybe on a daily basis. But when a crew, staff or what ever becomes divided and the finger pointing begins, focus on the goal is lost, and bad feelings remain. It's time to cut losses and reload.
