the piston boat doesn't have any of those issues....

yeah, but it may be questionable whether or not they are ready in time for the shootout with that boat... and with how the piston boat runs, they may not need it to take care of business....

D. Scott does his homework before he makes a move. I'd say he has taken some Areo technology from the Miss Bud hydro & applied it toward his Cat. If it reduced Top speed too much I don't think it would be there. It has to have some sort of benifit.

I was at Raymonds last Sunday and they said he would be there for the Shooout. They are having a big customer BBQ that weekend and he will be in attendance. Mum's the word though on wether he is bringing anything with him to run.
