As far as I am concerned I hope everyone involved in the Kilo runs get exposure and increases sales. They are truly the reason we watch races and pay the money to go to Key West. If not for exposure like this no one would really know what performance options are out there for us to see.
I agree with you 100% !(too many pro Reggie types in here). I understand we all have our favorites but lets just let the numbers speak for themselves. Yes Cig hasnt broken the "old mans" record yet but maybe they will or maybe they wont its just great competion right now.

We know your pro reggie.

But we also know your close minded and pretty much stated you do not believe either John Thomlison or Bob Teague.

In fact even though I only have a few posts. I have been viewing and pretty much anything you post is to do nothing but stir it up. Try to stick to facts and let your opinion remain just that yours.

I guess OL and Cig should be running their 39's up against the 42 Fountain then...

Man, this thread sure has gone down the crapper.

Just to clarify....I didn't think Merc supplied the Power for Reggies record run, nor did I say that. What I did say was it's funny that Merc supplied the power for Cigarette, because Merc owns a part of Fountain.
Before you get ahead of yourself (again ) I realise Merc didn't have these motors available for Regiie when he made his run.

I agree, I don't have any beef with any of the manufacturers either but I could also put 2000 hp in a john boat and make it go fast. If they really want to see who's the fastest they need to have boats of equal length and power go up against each other.

I've met Reggie in person and although I don't have a preference for his boats he's seemed like a decent man.

I agree 100% about the power for the fastest v-bottom. I don't necessarily think it needs to be the same length though. It's the fastest v-bottom, not the fast 42" v-bottom.

Just my opinion...

I agree... Pick your boat out of your line, drop like engines in and meet on an even playing field....

Speed records are fine, but it won't translate into the boat you buy as a customer when you buy a fountain. They are a production boat and Cigs are not.
