Just so there isn't any misunderstanding, I went back and modified my post by adding the following:

"This post in not intended to knock a particluar manufactuer but rather to point out that they all test new things and there is no better way to do this than with race boats. I'm certain that the readers of this forum are not naive. We all realize that if new things weren't tried and tested, we wouldn't be able to benefit from new advances in materials, technology, etc."

actually the NSX was originally designed as a ferrari, but they didnt build it because it wasnt exotic enough so they sold the design to acura.

when will they put turbines in these things??? where are the AMF boys with this?
ill take a 47 gtx, t55's, and bpm drives.
The NSX is a slow underpowered POS. I don't know what you are talking about as far as it being designed as a Ferrari. I talked to an Acura dealer the first year it came out and he had a whole bunch of literature on the building of the car and Ferrari was never mentioned. He did say the car was a dissapoinment but You can get one cheap though.

I know Fountian uses the same molds on their race and pleasure boats. Maybe you know more than the engineers at Fountain?

I will also gaurantee the technology Cigarette is using for their race boats will end up in their sport boats.
Cig's are not production boats. I am not just talking about molds here. And if you think they just pop a Fountain race boat out of a mold and run it without tweaking the bottom you are crazy.

Fountain's are production boats, and you can tell the difference between them and Cig's when you drive either one or if you just sit in either one. The last Fountain I drove did not impress me at all. It had some weird handling characteristics, and some of the components in the boat just looked cheap IMO.

Fountain Still won the worlds with the Bottom Delaminated !!
Reggie is just THAT GOOD !!!

I will agree that Reggie is good and his boats are great but the boat that won the KW worlds V-bottom title was not the same boat as mentioned in my post.

I would give Reggie credit for were we are in speed of the V bottoms are reaching today. His willingness to cut the bottom out of them and modifying it till he gets it right and still wanting more .

I remember back when Wellcraft tried....He just kept coming back with more !...I suspect he is just waiting for someone to beat his curent record so he can go out & do it again.
