The fastest I have seen was the E-ticket cat Powerboat tested with 2 980 hp Steve Schmidtt engines NA, it ran 148mph if I remember correctly.

The BRT is running 80 - 82 on GPS with the tabs up.. It's a little scary. With the tabs slightly down past dead center its running 75 MPH which is extremely flat and comfortable. The prop is currently a 26in 4 Blade Bravo. There is definetly some prop tuning required here and I am welcome to any suggestions.

The BRT was originally a two man sit down with a tiny back bench seat. It was a death seat at that! Back in 1990 we glassed in a full rear bulk head and converted over to a three man standup bolster. The original 3 man bolster came from Paul Barros at BRT which since has been replaced.

The 31 Formula and Top Gun both looked sweet! I heard you guys take off out of the creek and you sounded good. How about next time we meet / greet and share some cold beers ! !

Carlos runs that boat in the 160mph++ range. Too fast for such a small boat but it sure sounds good on the flyby. I think it'll be up for sale soon. He's upgrading to a full canopy boat.

was he running those steve schmidt engines on pump gas as they are advertised? they look like some bad mofos on the website but i thought i saw a post from someone saying they need higher octane than 93.
