People seem real quick on kickin' SR over the "pump Gas" and "pulley" issue saying no way he came with less than the best.

RR had 1550s in Jax...they are in Joey Griffin's shop...one is being freshened as it ran hot in Jax. RR had the "little"engines for Sarasota...they were testing them on friday am on the Pamlico when a pulley shaft broke...I was told they pulled the boat to Sarasota and repaired it there but the same part broke again
For any cats or anyone thinking about coming to the Kilos in NC to challenge Reggie be ready....they have some huge hp mills and supposedly more than one set

the only true comparison would be to run a cat and a v with the same HP engines, same drives and @ or near the same weight. My money would be on the cat.

You could make a brick go fast if you put enough hp behind it...

There are no rules on HP. Have the cats go to NC on Aug 4th with what ever power.

If they are going to treat it like a race, then you run what you bring. Its the entire package. I am a believer that if you can put more power in a brick, and are nervy enough to run it out, then more power to you You could go out and find a same weight mti and fountain, with the same power and drives and tell which one is faster, but it is a lot more fun to see a bunch of dudes empty their wallets for boats that cost more than my house, competing to see who can nowhere the fastest. No offense intended by that comment, as it is very fun to see anything tearing up the water at 170plus mph.
