My friend won his class with a 26 eliminator Daytona, probably due to the HTM crashing. The 26 isn't quite as fast as the 25, but seems to be a lot more stable and I think that is why he was able to go that speed compared to the other smaller fast boats. I'm not sure if you were in the same size class or not. He turned in 120 MPH a couple of times, but the GPS read 122.4 once & 124.6 another time. It turns out that he was hitting the rev limiter but couldn't hear it with the helmet on. If we had known that, we would have put on the 36P, but he was just trying to keep it in a straight line and didn't have time to look at the gauges.
Anyway congrats on the attempt, and I'm glad all is good.
Cord, Nice job as well. If I remember right you hit 106. Sorry I didn't get to meet you guy's, but I meet a lot of other oso members. Maybe next year.
OH and I blew a head gasket on the way back from the Big Dicks trip on Friday. Life goes on!
Thanks for the kind words. We never even made the second run. Do not normally jump the boat out of the water like that and did not want to hurt the drive. The X is so high on that boat the prop comes out easily. Could not hear it with the helmet on either.
I was surpised to see half the field under 100 MPH.
The back seat bottom was in the floor after that partial run. LOL
Even had to thrash at the tech inspection. The kill switch was not even hooked up !! The owner uses it religiously and it did not even work.
Pulled some speaker wire out and connected the kill switch to the MSD trigger wire.
Need to add that one to what we have done to save a boat ride thread.
