Engine Rip-off of the Century - How I got Screwed by Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing
In 2005 I bought a crate engine from Bill Mitchell Hardcore Racing. It was
a total disaster from start to finish. Within a year the engine had become
a coffee table in the reception area in my office.
I can laugh at this $43,000 screw up because it is several years ago now.
And because I think I may get the last laugh. Watch the video all the way
to the end to see why.
Please send this video to everyone you know so that no one else gets burned
like I did!
UPDATE: 4 Sept 2009, Bill Mitchell Racing has UNsubscribed from my videos
and deleted my video from his favorites.
Guess he has no sense of humour...
UPDATE: 5 Oct 2009, Bill Mitchell Racing has blocked me from his channel.
Awww, I was having fun.
UPDATE: 15 May 2011, Bill Mitchell has finally noticed my little video and
has launched an aggressive counter attack to discredit me. Read the last
135 comments - it's pretty funny.
UPDATE: 17 May 2011, Bill Mitchell has disabled commenting to his videos to
get rid of the huge number of negative comments.
I've opened an online store where you can get 540Merlin T-shirts and other
great stuff! This is the only source in the world for 540Merlin stuff.

A drive in the 57
This is a quick video that I threw together to show the car driving. I'm
not happy with how much wind noise that was caught filming, so I will be
doing another video next time the car is out. Also my dad never really ran
any of the passes at full throttle since he still is getting used to
something with this much power. I have run it at full tilt and it is way faster than any of the runs in this
