    Has anyone seen the infomercial for Evinrude on TV late at night? It shows about a 15 minute segment on the world record breaking pyramids that the four teams joined up to make. It shows the Mad City Dyne with the 3 225 E Tecs going to work. It is pretty cool. I saw it on FX about 3:00 in the AM a few days ago.

    I'll get some video to Daniel of this. The teams involved will all be receiving copies.

    That would be really cool. I have tried to find it on the web with no luck.

    As soon as you can. Plus if you have any inside conections on getting site approval to use this video that would be great. Otherwise I will contact BRP/Evinrude myself and see what it will take to get it up.

    I saw this clip this morning, it isn't as long as it could have been, but it proves that Dynes are still king when it comes to towing a heavy load. BRP left it until the end of the infomercial as a high point, listing the combined weight of the skiers and showing (if I remember correctly), how some of the ropes broke and had to be replaced for the next attempt.
    It was very impressive! I can only imagine what it would have been like to be one of the skiers at the base of the pyramids.
