1. There usually exists more than one right answer.

2. Engineering is always compromised by cost. Given an unlimited budget, you can build a bridge to the moon.
Finally!! Some sense has come from all of this.
I've seen the Bob Holcomb works-of-art, but good grief man, these things are built to a specific, limited application. Brian is a Porsche hot-rodder who loves these cars. If he wants to come out with a product that is better than the competition (FabSpeed, B&B, GHL, Schell or OBX for that matter) in this market, then more power to him!
Stop being "header-snobs" .....there's enough wine-snobs out there to cover any industry.

Finally, if there are truly engineers out there, then some of you have lost sight of our profession, INNOVATE!
