Default Any 40'-47' v bottoms that will run 130mph on 850's?

curious to know if anyone has been able to hit 130 with 850's, how does a 42 fountain run or a 42gtx, I know it takes the 1075's to push a 47 gtx to that speed.

i think a 42 PR should get very close if not over...

PS, probably not going to happen with 850's. Team Taboo can chime in here, he has a 42 Lightning with 1075's that hit 136 with Reggie himself at the wheel so even with less weight in the 42 PR I don't think with 450 less HP it would run anywhere close to that. A 42X with 850's will hit 108 and XXX (47 GTX) runs 130's with 1075's as reference points.

A 51 GTX with trip 850's might do it.

saw a 51 gtx at loto for the shootout and was told with 3 - 1075's would hit 130, it ran 126 in the shootout.

Yes it is possible!!! A 42 lightning full cabin runs mid to low 120's in fact one is listed right now. the 42 PR fountain will run darn close if not touch 130
