It was the first boat back that did all ther card stops.Extreme exhibit and My way were back first but didnt do the card stops.

JC, It looks beautiful, as every boat Vinny builds. Very impressive speed. I don't know how Vinny gets his boats to run the speeds they do. Did you build the motors? Did you do all the set up for the PSI's? Whos valve covers are they?
I'm still waiting for your phone call.

My hats off to both of you guys, Skater and JC. I really like the new design with the wrap around windscreen, and it's obvious the new efficient bottom. Great competition for MTI who has been stealin some of the thunder on the speed side and Nortech on the design side. This is just another credit towards an engine builder who is involving himself with building some of the best custom power around.













Now send me my 20 bucks Jeff

JC, what kind of starters did you put in there? I'm running the rear mount Tiltons and going through them too often...
Thanks,

(and killer boat Vinnie!!!)

With the shiftable crashboxes, it is a waste of time to use the starters with the extended snout that goes through the bellhousing spacer.They break often.We use the Powermaster 9500 starter that bolts on the block.They never give a problem.There also is an upgraded model that is big coin.I have no problem with the powermaster.
