Thanks! Mike

They are customers and yes I consider them friends too!

The engines are limited by their "chip" in the computer.

Certainly not by the guys in the boat !

I sometime wonder if DC and Jimmy should be on the chip too.

You don't see that a bit conflicting?

I guess it is what it is.....


If they hit 170 in Key West it must have been a sight to see...

...

Today's timing equipment is not advanced enough to accurately track Reggie's lightning speeds.

Over 170mph Is Serious Speed Who Ever Dials It In!

The fastest they went was on the leg out in the first race on Wed. maybe about 145 after that they were on cruise control. There is on easy way to check speed on the first lap because the start is on the out leg. If you look at timing for that lap you will see that was there best.

Thank you Team Taboo.

So I guess there must have been a few typographical errors in the FPB advertisement claiming 150 mph to 170 mph on the race course....

I personally do not think that is possible to do under race conditions no matter who it is....
