A dark night in a city that knows how to keep its secrets. But high above the quiet streets on the 12th floor of the Acme Building, one man is still trying to find the answers to life's persistent questions. Guy Noir, Private Eye.

But Tunick did eventually buy it from TCW in 2002, supposedly for $15 million.

Received my replacement A and B Q-Jet motors today ( with the narrower diameter casing). Tried it in a few motor mounts, fit every one. Was expecting a piece of heat shrink tubing to hold the igniter in the nozzle but nada. Instructions say to use a piece of masking tape. Only heat shrink is attached to the lead wires to mark the correct position for inserting.

Also saw an announcement on the Quest website that the C and D motor pre-orders will start shipping shortly after Labor Day weekend, and it might take up to two weeks to clear the backlog. Haven't received a shipping notice yet for my pre-order. Twiddling thumbs, drumming fingers......

Once the C and D motors are IN STOCK and shipping I will order.
Not falling for it like that last 18mm Quest D "coming soon" debacle that was reminiscent of the vaporware Enerjet D21 in the 70's or the Quest BP Thunderjets like 10 years ago.
When in doubt, WHACK the GAS and NEVER touch the brake !!!
