They tried that with the RC-51 to no avail - HRC wont supply them with parts and they just dont have the budget to do it on their own. I LOVE seeing the support teams kicking factory butt, but, its just too costly to happen on the Superbike playing field. Im surpried they booted Jake, granted he hasnt done a whole lot, but , neither has anyone else ! Duhamel should go -- Give Josh his dues , but, I guess thats the Honda way - see also Colin Edwards, but, thats another rant !
Go Tommy !
