It's a new season and all ya'll that want to complain about Fountain need to build a Super Vee to race next season 06. Reggie is not scared of racing other boats, Reggie or Mike are not scared of a drag race. I would love to see a Super Vee class with all the top boat builders ie: Donzi, Outerlimits, Cigarette, Nor-Tech, Skater or any other boat you like. And the winner would be the one with the most money and the best driver which always go hand in hand.

Yep! Everyone complained about his engines sounding like Super V's next to all the other F2s. We all also had a problem them being able to dump & fill ballast tanks during the race. We were not allowed to have those & it stated such in the rule books. reggie said he wouldn't disconnect the fill pump but he promised he wouldn't use it
When they won particular races, the boat would be on it's way back to the shop before any of the other f-2's were out of the water. Whenever we won (& lapped reggie in rough stuff once or twice) we were picked apart.
Ya know what? We still had a damn good time

Look for next year, OL will be racing next season. We will see if Reggie can find enough reasons to get us banned from an entire season instead of a single race like this weekend.

You can'thide from the truth, and next year the numbers will settle all speculation.

I thought OL learned from the last whipping Reggie handed down. Facts not speculation.

A 3 to 7.2 mph average faster than the other 3 identical boats?

Rio Roses: 89.8 with the fastest lap speed on lap 1 @ an avg 91.8 mph

Wazzup: 86.8

Rodriguez Group 85.9

Joe Boxer 82.6

Same boats? Same Power?
Maybe it is just a crew advantage?......
not really the same boats
joe boxer has been around and probably weights a couple hundred more than the others, technology has advanced, and if your in the factory sponsored boat it WILL be fast.

So far we have gained 6 mph and now the only thing left is to put her on a diet. On paper the gain should be approx 3 mph after the weight loss. We were unable to run KW due to a sponsor pulling out on us last Friday. But life goes on as does racing. We'll be back in full swing for next year though. The boat is now located over at our shop in Melbourne, so if your ever in the area, give us a buzz.

Trent

Trent,
Will do, send me a PM on how to get hold of you. Love to stop by and see your rig.
Thanks,
Dean

Outerlimits will be in next year, but also heard rumors of a new cig super v unlimited. Would be pretty cool to see all three line up and race.

Rieegie wouldn't have to spend so mutch money supporting SBI, if they would let other manufacturers race, they might be willing to throw some sponsorship money around.
