If you were a privateer like Pyn, would it be worth taking a motor that might grenade and strand your rally in order to help out a front runner?






I'm not sure what I'd do. What would you do?

No way! This is a "once in a lifetime" dream...I am really really confused here...

Since we're talking about Pyn and that it's his first (privateer financed) race: I'd keep my engine.
Were it my non-first race, perhaps I'd go into negotiations about it.

If you're not cheating, you're cheating yourself I guess.
I'm staying tuned for this one.
Oooh I see what you did there.

For the n00bs, Niles has a couple of Dakars as Team Rally PanAm's mechanic under his belt, supporting Jonah Street and others. He's probably not talking right out of his...árrivee special stage...

No. I posted Pyn's initial SMS to me. Haven't heard back on my clarification question.

Don't worry, you guys will know when I do!

I'd say I'll do it if you pay my way for the 2014 Dakar.

I'd trade motors for one solid gold coissant and the keys to his Andorrian home.

There's quite a few folks that will make that trade, I recon.

Could Lyndon swap with him now, get through tomorrow and swap again for the "Factory" motor he was traded for and take a 45min. finish with a hot rod motor and have some extra $$ in his pocket for his trouble?

I bet the Dakar was too easy for Pyndon and he decided to spice it up a little by using a half broken engine. Imagine CdP's face if Pyndon gets the broken engine and finishes the stage while he runs out of fuel or something...
This will be a monumental fOck up
