OHH now its the 85mph mark,, whooaa hate to burst your bubble, but we have plenty of 23 Baja OL that will take that challange on!!!!!!!! I may have a 20 OL that can come pretty damn close and it has a Alpha on it.
Triple Dipchits, big diff from 85 to 100.01 , on average that is about 200 HP diff, but then again none of us are experts, we only do this chit for a living.
I'm not even getting out of bed for 85. You ran your mouth about 100. Hey, you did 93 with 4 people last weekend, whats the problem.
Your choices are..
1. Show up and run 100 and be a star
2. Show up and don't run 100 and be the OSO Jackazz
3. Admit it won't run 100 and go away

85 now? It was 100 before, until you got called out.. As far as your challenge, you have been made aware of several opportunities to show up at small v hull gatherings, yet amazingly enough you never show.. Coincidence? I think not..
As I have stated before here, on D.net and several boards: I hope you can prove us all wrong and you have actually perfected the miracle drive. There is whole world of folks out there that are seeking a performance oriented alternative to the Alpha, and will beat a path to your doorstep. You will be the outdrive king..
So, strap em on Sunday, show the world you are the man you claim to be..
The challenge stands MUCH taller now.....
TD, I've been hoping this thing goes down and you prove everyone wrong, I've read a lot of the posts on the various forumns you have been on and yes you do have the hecklers that follow you around. What I don't understand is why are you goiong to stoop to there level and say I am going to only run 85 because that is all they think I can run. Why not go out there and blow them out of the water, I'm sure they would be impressed even if you hit the high 90's as long as you went out there and gave it your all. If you go out there and half ass it because a few people on here say you can't break 80 mph, and only hit 85 you will only be shooting yourself in the foot and proving nothing to anyone on any of these forumns, and you will still get all of the BS you got before. You have to relize why you have so many skeptics, you have years of boating expertise on these sites and they know how most under 30' boats handle high speeds. Shoot my Dad has a 25 Nordic Rage that would go over 100mph, granite it has 925hp with a S/C 540, but once you start to hit that mid 90 mph range the boat really becomes a handfull. Anyway all I am saying is if your gonna show, you should give it everything you've got and shut everyone's mouth that is giving you crap or it is not gonna do you a bit of good to even show up.
