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.
