How long is the LOTO course. I thought it was a mile or more. How much do you need? I've seen Callan go 200 on that course and Bacardi Silver do over 180.

Are you talking like a Bonneville type setup where you hit the traps full on then have a 1 mile "speed" trap where the real number is captured?

I don't know, BLEE said it was to short in another thread. A kilo run is 3.3 miles I think???

1 mile and you start from a dead stop unless you are a direct drive boat and then you get to start from being on plane but it isn't like a kilo run.

Hence the 150ish number on SR at the Shootout, but 170ish number on an extended run.

they will let you roll into start , last year towards the end they were letting you get into throttle well before line, Dave hit over 185 last year, a full top end race which would be need to be ran from 6 mm to 19mm thru rough nasty water which would be a handful for anybody or 1-2'chop from 25mm to 41mm is a great run, there were several 150mph plus boats who smoked thru that area last year in the high stakes shootout, a speed of over 175 was ran with plenty of water that day, knowing how to get top acceleration is also relative to how quick a boat is. there will be a black boat at the top of the trophy this year anyway, and yes a cat.
