What this kilo attempt is after is a raising to the title of the worlds fastest v-bottom, which is probably going
to require somewhere around 1500-2500 HP per side rigged in a staggered reconfiguration, or even possibly triples,
in a boat hull designed to look like a v-bottom when viewed from the front or from the rear.
This is all that is really needed to get that title at the top of the full page add, or in the SBI/APBA and UIM
record books once again. Isn't that what he really wants again? More room between himself and the competition.
There's always more room in the trophy case for another "World's Fastest".
Some will argue why to risk it if you're already on top. Human nature, perhaps.
Teams that already own the land speed attempts are always trying to raise their own current number.
