    Theres a few threads about the Epic on Wake World as well. I have never personally herd a lot of great things about them but they are a very small company in the boating world.

    The one i saw at the Texas Jam is the first i saw in person, i didnt get a chance to see it in action, or look to closely at it, the people who brought it < i think a dealer > just didnt seem to interested in pushing the brand as much as enjoying the party.

    Active's selling a bunch, lots on the river this year. When a guy loads one up with options they are nice boats, definite 'Bu styling.

    Transom embedded tunes and dual rudders are about the only thing that interest me. Too bad they look like they rearended somebody and never got fixed properly.

    I also saw the turbo diesel in another thread on here researched and saw it was powered by a Hyundai diesel. Kinda cool as I've worked for Hyundai for 10 years and was wishing they would make a wakeboat considering they are the largest ship manufacturer in the world

    Man if i could get a Diesel in my boat, id be sold, then id be 3 out of vechicles in my stable are Diesels but i think the biggest problem with the Diesel is it would need to be a closed cooling system due to the engine needs to be 190 to operate efficently and pumping cold lake water threw it only keeps it in cold mode.

    Id love to see more on that Epic they put a diesel in and know exactly how its cooling system works.

    My only concern would be the fumes while being towed or surfing especially.

    with wakesurfing running at lower rpm's and wanting tons of torque to get the boat out of the hole loaded down, seems that diesel would be a great application, but I'd question it's usability for slalom? seems that the higher rpm's would be better suited to a gas v8?

    Would probably need a multi-speed tranny behind it to be more versatile for higher speeds.
