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

    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?

    Except Cyril ?
    Pyndon who is getting Cyril's engine :D
    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 :D

    Absolutely not. This is likely my one and only time to experience the personal challenge of Dakar. We're here for entirely different reasons. My personal journey trumps his job.



    Unless, they are willing to pay for the whole package and time off from work for 2014. And I get an RV of my own. ANd they fly the whole F5 team out. And cater to their every whim.

    If Team F5 ever makes it to the actual Dakar grounds like that, there'd be a TSC sing along around the campfire every night!

    while waiting for confirmation about the engine swap, i was searching YT for some footage.
    all this talking about CdP and winning the rally is kinda unimportant. have a look
