Default Class 6 Boat with a #4 Drive and 880hp Engine!!

24 Panther.. He's only going to race a "Few" events he said... Fricking engine sits almost as tall as me!!

I'll try and snap a few pictures, right now the deck is off and they are adding some serious beef to the stringers and transom and moving the tank up to fit the trans.

My advise to him was "Just keep it within the rules" - and you should have no problems.
