Yes, it was the worlds for OSS and OPA, SBI and APBA had theirs in KW.

I've said it before though....why is it called a "World" title anyway? Last I checked there were a bunch of other continents, if anything UIM should be the Worlds, at least they race all over the place.

What a joke
The only way to really tell how good the OL Super Vee is, is for it to run against the much better prepared Fountains and Skater's in SBI/APBA. Hopefully someone will bring a OL to the SBI/APBA fleet of Super Vee's

Ahhh ... did you really just say the boats in SBI are better prepared then the boats racing in OSS ... or OPA? Thats kinda a slam dont ya thing? Specially since some of the boats racing in SBI have ran OPA and OSS ... and visa versa ...

RG, I think it's just a matter of some folks rooting for their team..

OPA, SBI, OSS, ABPA....mine is better than yours... From an outsider looking in I think it's really damaging to the sport as a whole and makes them even more disbanded....

Ohh yeah, last I checked... when an APBA boat went to race in UIM it got hammered..

Just this week an OSS team went racing UIM:
Gary Ballough finished in 4th place out of 18 boats in the Class III 6 litre race.

Not too bad but I guess it wasn't enough again.. Don't remember which boat it was since it was a while ago, maybe Alcone, but they were getting hammered in all the turns because the UIM boats had 2 speed transmissions and the APBA boat was rigged more for top speed.

Don't misunderstand though, my only point is that the word "World" connotate an international or "world" title, not a national.. I know, it's splitting hairs, it's like the world series of baseball..

RGIII, I believe that the OL Super Vee in OSS is a much better prepared team and boat than all the others. The Muscle Fountain is old and the Muscle Team while I love 'em are really there to party have fun and race. They were flying back and forth from Destin to Key West every evening to go party...so they had to be tired on race day...I'd think. The Badboy boat is serious fast but keeps breaking every race. So yes I believe that the 2 Skaters and the factory Fountains in SBI/APBA are better prepared seriosu teams and I believe that the OL OSS Super Vee should race with those teams. I'm not slamming anyone just speaking my mind.
