EBR and Amsoil
Wondered if I was reading this correctly. I enjoy watching supercross, moto gp, and super bike racing, and think I noticed a "trend" which has me confused. EBR (Eric Buell Racing) as two entries in the super bike circuit. He also advertises for Amsoil, which ads run during the super cross races.
Initially he stated that he thought he had an engineering problem, in that he was suffering engine failures. Praise Ala, Amsoil showed him that he only had a lubrication problem, and they were able to sell him "bearing in a bottle", which saved him from having to re-engineer all his motors.
Was watching the super bike race at Aragon, and saw his lead bike lose an engine. Clearly a complete engine failure based on the smoke screen he laid down, but no explanation on his web site.
OK, so now I'm curious about what he actually said in his support for Amsoil, so I scrolled through the Seattle super cross race, searching for his ad. It was a new ad, with no mention of his previous engineering issues.
So here's my confusion. He has the same oils available to him that all the other manufactures do, yet his engines purportedly failed using what everyone else finds success with. Is he not admitting that he does have an engineering issue, but overcame that by using the famous "bearing in a bottle"? Yet he's blowing engines in the race.
Am I missing something here? Perhaps the proverbial "boat"?
Admittedly, any bike's motor can and will blow. But the series of events here has me stymied. I need a nap.
