You talk smack on my comment about physics I thought you must be KIDDING. Just because you don't understand it doesn't make it wrong.

It's all correct. He was damn fast, faster that Rio, but not as fast as if he had it on kill. Those motors make 17-18# of boost on 116, per Mike D'annabell(spelling). He was running the pump gas set up which is more like 6-8# of boost. Sound about right JC.

Funny how you never see the second race or the last half of the first race. That the facts, I was there.
yea...speedy chased him down then got off it....YEA...he got off it....YEA RIGHT!

No, Rio was obviously faster on the start, but SR reeled him in, QUICKLY.

Dude there was a bridge, which was no wake and boats coming and going in both directions. So YES he slowed down. This was on the return, we all had just gone under the bridge 5 minutes early and saw the water patrol.

That vidoe is a JOKE, it is only about 1/3 of the first race, wonder why they didn't show the rest of it, or the second race. Because the beak boat got spanked.
Is English your primary language, or are you just too excited and typing with too many fingers ?

No problem, Remember SR was just there for a poker run not a press release story like Reggie.
