Wow, that is just phenomenal! Way to go luisbelaustegui! I have so many questions...
Wouldn't fuel consumption be an issue compared to a four stroke?
Does the 150 have enough power? (it obviously does, it finished!)
That is just awesome! I love hearing these success stories, especially when it's someone that clearly doesn't want to follow what the rest of the herd are doing. I'm not too far from UMKC, maybe I need to drop in an buy him a beer!
