I do not think a one mile drag race in flat water really proves who has the better hull. LOTO shootout is a blast but it is a drag race in every sense. Small props, gears, crank up the boost and spin the engines to the moon. I plan to be there but will not be setup for a drag race that is needed to win. Many people do not realize how much faster many boats are capable of that run the shootout. It takes miles to really hang a big offshore boat out to it's potential top speed.
