Default Awesome Powerboats using new hull technolgy!

Saw some interesting new design on the sponson bottoms in their new designs, also some type of staggered fins on back of tunnel near transom. was told it is engineered design to add lift to the hull, and help with high speed steering. Also saw cad drawing of their new removable canopy, neat stuff, good luck Dan, hope to see a Awesome speed record at next years shootout.

Dont know speeds yet, and they build their own motors as well, time will tell.

Tyson you are correct, vortec generators work very well. the unique air pocket dimple bottom adds lift similar to golf ball technology, like a silica tetrohedron design in oblate spheroid shape.
