    Default Relentless out for 2013

    Looks like Relentless isn't going to make it this year. After all the work they've put into it, starter issues are keeping them grounded. Really feel bad for Kevin and the team.

    Ah man!!! She's looks gorgeous too. Their Facebook didn't really give me a clear "no Reno 2013" but that's how it seems. What a shame sorry Kevin good luck!

    Kevin said "we're done" and a spare was 3 months lead time from Continental. Maybe someone is looking for parts but, it didn't sound too good.

    really, a starter can't be found??? pray to the man upstairs they can find one. I love their determination and drive; they have to live up to their plane name!

    GO RELENTLESS!!!

    Continental? I thought he was running a Lycoming 720.

    Not sure what's under the hood at this point but, here's what Kevin posted on FB:

    "So close but in the end we simply could not milk the starter adapter with new springs. Continental is 3 months out for replacement! Nice.... Ron Simard and I work so hard and the plane was running so well.... I'm going kiting!"

    I got the letter from Continental at work a little over a week ago. 3 month lead time on starter adapters for Continental GTSIO-520 engines. Kevin, did you check with RAM Aircraft in Waco?
    Good luck guys, love me some Relentless!
