So, we have the big blower motors and 6's, but just a basic cabin without all the fluff, so, who knows exactly what the weight is. I would guess it should be around the same as the other boats, maybe more.

BT built another boat (raised deck) with 1400hp turbines and I believe they stopped at 114mph with it. Don't know what the specifics of the boat are. But I think we are the fastest so far. Hopefully there is more to come.

Nice run Jason, it's sure nice to see the BT's best the rest (except for three?) at the Shootout. If we could only get ours to run like that .

It is normal layup from BT. It is a lot power, but it accelerates really fast and has more to go. Just haven't run it out yet.
