I can say without a doubt, that there was at NO time any advantage in favor or the Rio Roses boat. So much in fact that the only time the boat was ever ahead of the Speed Racer boat, was in the "No Wake" Zones when Randy (SpeedRacer) was obeying the Laws of the Water..

Like I said, I can honestly say that there was absolutly no advantage at ANY point by the Fountain, at any point up untill the blower belt failure on the motor. Unless your talking about in the No wake Zone. And and as sad as it is, the Speed Racer boat will not maintain 170mph on just one Sterling, thus ending the idea of playing for the rest of the day.

Considering each time the boats lined up, the Fountain was left back in the wake, It was more of saying..."What would have happened if it was turned up, and on the big props, then how bad would it have been?"
I watched the video and the Fountain is pulling away at a fast clip...

The video is at complete odds with your comments. (There was no editing or lack of footage either.)

The Daytona 500 is not the Daytona 499. If it was DE would have won a lot more than one time. You gotta finish to win.

Or
2nd place is just the 1st place loser

absolute valid point, have the rules out front. Main thing is when we all go to watch your boat at loto in aug, we know that you are going to run and will know the rules. publicity stunts can backfire, i think it did in this case. Rio is bad and fast no doubt, just next time they should let others know the rules.If you break you lose, but let the others know you are racing first.

Please let everyone know where your ignorant azz is going to be running because someone exhibiting your total stupidity and complete lack of responsibility will end up killing someone.

Your post was one of the moronic statements I've ever read on this Forum.

Anyone who would EVEN consider running those speeds with passengers and minus full blown safety gear has no business whatsoever on the water, unless your floating on a rubber ducky....

Either grow up or get lost before you kill someone.

And my money is that there is no way "Dyejob" will show up at the "Shoot-Out" because he will know in advance that everyone there is there for the same reason. He won't be able to ambush anyone there.

If Reggie wants to back up his claim about spanking the Cats, then he needs to show up, otherwise I hope the Cat manufacuters have an absolute field day in dressing him down.

He won't show cause he knows he'll get his azz handed to him, by MORE than one boat.....

And Fred I agree with you completely.....

i guess you see what you want to see - there is a clip of the Fountain running close to the helo so it appears to be going faster BUT even with the creative editting (why did it not continue?) it never shows it pass the cat.

Unfortunately though, this is a clear case of apples and oranges.

When it's apples vs. apples all that Fountain is going to see is the rooster tail by the cats going by him.

I'll give Reggie credit for the marketing "bait" he got out of Jacksonville, even though the credibility is a bit suspect.
