Default 25,000 HP Jetboat - Engine Video

There were quite a number of questions last week about these J-85 jet engines on the "Thriller Phantom II" Jet Boat. I posted a highdef webvideo on the USMSG site showing this "over-performance" turbine in actual operation. It's powering the "Thriller Viper" drag car and it's only a single engine, but the video clearly shows what these engines do and why this isn't the ideal boat for our crowded South Florida waterways on a Sunday afternoon. By-the-way 300MPH in a quarter mile is pretty quick !

Here's the link for anyone who'd like to take a look. The video is called Moroso Night Run. It's in the "samples area" so you don't need to be a member to view it.

P.S. Any comments or ideas on other things you'd like to see please let me know.

Looks Cool To Me. I Think Thats More Of An Exhibition Machine. I Don't Think It Will Be "running Around The South Florida Water Ways".
What Kinda Hull Is That Anyway?

P.s. The Jet Cars Are Not Alowed To Run Full Throttle!!!

Agreed ! Probably won't be a good fishing boat either.

I heard one of the other cars was running more than 115% of rated power.
